FAQ: Why do my trees need care?

Trees did not evolve to grow in the human environment. Growing trees over and around our property means taking special considerations to ensure the health of your landscape, the value of your property, and the safety of your loved ones.

Ultimately, however, you care for your trees because of the benefits they bring to your life and legacy. Good trees outlive us. Caring for them contributes to the beauty of your landscape today, and leaves a legacy of natural beauty that can last generations. Building and protecting the urban forest is an act of stewardship and an investment in the future.
