Are you thinking about adding a deck or a pool to your backyard but are concerned about losing that special tree or shrub? Construction on your property can cause damage to your existing trees, but proper planning to protect your trees can minimize damage and add years to your tree’s life.
Establishing a Tree Protection Zone with the following can help your trees thrive during and after construction:
fencing around valuable trees to keep equipment as far away as possible
proper pruning for required clearance and preventing or mitigating soil compaction
excavation or trenching
You’ll be glad you took preventative care as you relax on your new deck under the shade of your 150-year-old oak. The Care of Trees can make recommendations and provide the services that can protect your trees during your next construction project.
