Trees are an important element in every landscape, but we aren’t always sure of the best ways to keep them safe and healthy.

Some topics that Scott and Steve can address are:

  • What are the top 5 ways to promote tree health and longevity?
  • How can contractors mitigate construction damage to existing trees?
  • What are the tree protection guidelines everyone should know?
  • How can professionals use compost tea for tree and shrub health?
  • What are some strategies for educating clients about the importance of long-term tree health?
  • And more…
