Practical care for trees

Tree care is especially important in highly urbanized areas. Compacted soil, poor drainage, sidewalks, utility lines that run through root zones, road salt: All these factors make it  difficult for trees to survive along streets, in parks and schoolyards, in office parks, and in yards. The Community Trees Program can help municipalities, public officials, professionals and homeowners apply the best tree care practices.
