If you have trees on your street or in your yard, this is your friendly reminder to do a seasonal check-in. Take a look at your trees and ask yourself the following questions:
- Are the trees healthy looking?
- Are there many dead branches?
- Do you see signs of significant damage by insects, or signs of any invasive forest pests?
- Do you notice any potential cause for concern such as off-color leaves, new fungal growth, or cavities?
If you have concerns, you may want to contact a certified arborist or tree service. Checking in with your trees periodically and noticing any unusual changes is the first step in making sure they can continue to help our Earth for years to come.
