Tree Care

A healthy, well-managed forest, maintained by both local governments and private citizens, helps sustain economic vitality and improve quality of life. Ongoing tree maintenance helps ensure tree health and long tree life. Proper tree care requires an ongoing effort to monitor tree health and provide basic maintenance for all community trees, regardless of ownership.

Homeowners and community tree care staff can use these resources to identify tree problems and solutions and conduct basic tree maintenance. Particular situations may require an inspection by a trained certified arborist to be sure about risk related to structural health of your trees.

Do you still have a tree problem you need to resolve? Ask the Arborist
