Urban Forestry Manual (j) - Tree Maintenance
Proper care is essential for maintaining and improving the health of existing trees and planning for future growth in our urban forests. Unfortunately, when we plant trees we often think the job is finished, when it has really just started. When trees are planted, it is important to consider ongoing maintenance – what needs to be done and who is responsible. This unit provides an introduction to tree maintenance.
The unit begins by discussing how the urban setting is unique. Then it discusses different tree maintenance activities, including mulching, watering, pruning, fertilizing, disease and pest control, tree conflicts, and tree removal.
