What You Can Do

  • Work on trees and shrubs that don’t require ladders. Prune out small dead and broken branches within reach of a handsaw, polesaw or pole pruning
  • Apply a 2-4 inch layer of wood chips or organic mulch over the root zone. This helps retain moisture and provide beneficial organic material to the tree roots
  • Have trees inspected regularly for disease or decay in order to prevent hazards in the tree.
