Tree Maintenance Tips

Trees Work Hard To Prevent Flooding

In one single day, a tree can soak up 100 gallons of water from the ground and disperse it back into the air.

Trees Increase Your Homes Value

Property values of landscaped homes are 5 to 20 percent higher than those of non-landscaped homes based on the species, size, condition and location of the trees included in the landscape. Trees also provide shade which can lower cooling costs for your home and reduce heating costs in the winter by acting as a windbreak.

Trees Positively Impact Our Quality Of Life

Trees provide privacy, accentuate views, reduce noise and glare, and even enhance architecture. Natural elements and wildlife are brought to the urban environment which increases the quality of life for residents within the community.

Trees Offer A Calming Effect

We feel a calming effect from being near trees. The serenity we feel can significantly reduce stress, fatigue, and even decrease recovery time from surgery and illness. Green spaces can also help lower the level of crime within urban environments.

Trees Help Our Environment

Trees help moderate temperatures by creating a cooling effect which can counteract the heating effect of pavement and buildings in an urban environment.
Compact tree foliage can serve as a windbreak, as well as provide protection from rainfall.
Leaves filter the air we breathe by removing dust and other particulates and releasing oxygen.

Tree Tips

Insects & Disease

Insects and diseases can threaten tree health. As soon as you notice any abnormality in your tree’s appearance, you should begin a careful examination of the problem. By identifying the specific symptoms of damage and understanding their causes, you may be able to diagnose the problem and select an appropriate treatment.


Mulches are materials placed over the soil surface to maintain moisture and improve soil conditions. Mulching is one of the most beneficial acts a homeowner can do for the health of a tree. However, improper mulching materials and practices may have little, or even negative, impact on the trees in your landscape.
