Urban Forest Health

urban tree & landscape service

Trees growing in the city or in an urban environment face many more pressures then trees growing in the forest. The soil is usually disturbed during construction and the best soil is hauled away. Then its compacted in order to build building or roads. Finally a small hole is dug out and a tree plopped into the hole and covered up. Usually the irrigation system that’s installed doesn’t take into account that some trees need more or less water than others, so your trees are often either underwatered or overwatered.

Its no wonder that the average life of an urban tree is 12 years. We think that is a terrible survival rate because tree provide so much benefit to the urban environment – they deserve and long and productive life. We can help by recommending the right tree for your location, fix the soil before planting so it will survive better and make sure it has the correct watering and management program.
