Tree care


Caring for trees can be as simple – and as important – as watering a newly-planted tree in your street through a few dry summers, to the professional skills of arborists who climb trees and prune away dead wood or other branches to form the tree to a shape that suits its position and purpose, or to protection measures where trees are close to development sites, or to scientific research into the effects of pests and pathogens and the options for controlling them.
