Trees provide protection from downward fall of rain, sleet, and hail as well as reduce storm run-off and the possibility of flooding.
Basic Tree Maintenance
What do trees need?
Trees need regular maintenance to ensure their long-term health and safety in our landscapes. The urban environment is the source of many stressors on trees; from asphalt reflecting excess heat, to the salt we put down in the winter time. Trees do not usually encounter these stresses in their natural environment and they can often lead to poor growth or even death of the tree if they aren’t properly addressed. To help our urban trees grow large and live long productive lives, there are many things that we can do to help out.
