How to have the best looking trees in your neighborhood

Practice right tree, right place. Select tree species with growth characteristics that match the planting space and site conditions. For example, because of their height, tall trees like Douglas-fir, should not be planted under power lines.

Mulch your trees. Mulching helps keep soil moist and provides a protective barrier about the base of a tree. Apply mulch several inches thick and extending out several feet from the tree, keeping it away from the trunk itself.

Give your trees a drink! Newly planted trees and even established trees need water regularly during drought conditions. Keep lawn care equipment away from trees. Injury to a tree’s trunk, roots, and branches from lawn care tools can cause decay and may lead to the tree’s decline.

Leave roots alone. Roots support, anchor, supply water and nutrients, and store energy for a tree. Damage to tree roots is a common cause of tree death in urban areas. Make correct pruning cuts. Prune according to national standards. This method of pruning benefits your tree’s health, thus benefiting you! Remember to never top your trees!
