BEFORE YOU START


It is important to take trees into consideration from the very beginning of the construction planning process.  Damaging a root system, trunk, or crown will cause some degree of stress and potential decline in all trees.  It may take years for signs of damage to appear. This damage may appear in the form of small leaf syndrome, invading fungi or mushrooms, infestation by opportunistic insects, or any number of other diseases that affect weaker trees.  By the time these signs become obvious, its too late to repair the damage.  Pro-active tree preservation is a very intentional process, that takes a tree's biological functions into consideration.  This approach will be much more successful then trying to remediate tree damage that has already occurred. 

 

Before you start your project, keep your trees in mind. There are ways to ensure that your trees will not be damaged by construction or other human activities.  Preservation will add financial value, environmental value and aesthetic value to your property. An ISA Certified Arborist experienced with tree preservation can help design a successful pre-construction, during construction, and post-construction aftercare program to ensure the health and longevity of your trees.

Trees have many benefits.  They can help decrease the costs of cooling during the summer months, and keep your home warm during the winter months.  They can provide screening, be a noise barrier, draw moisture from the ground, and help support a natural habitat.

 

Trees not only add aesthic value, they add financial value, and have a positive environmental impact.

 

Studies show that trees can add 15 to 20% value to a property. Studies also show that children raised in areas with trees live healthier and happier lives.
