Similar to undergoing an annual health physical or performing routine maintenance on your car, it’s important to carry out routine tree checks to maintain healthy trees in our yards and parks. Tree-health concerns are not just limited to our forests and woodlands. Just consider the trees along your streets — who cares for them? Trees are our longest living perennial, and are susceptible over many, many years to pest infestation and diseases, drought and storm damage, and just the lack of proper care.
