Friends of the Urban Forest believes in helping each tree we plant become established. Early tree care is an important part of this. Our staff and volunteer crews visit each tree at least three times during the critical first three years after it’s planted. The crews assess the health of the tree, ensure that its supporting stakes and ties are sound, and prune it as needed.
Property owners can contract with us for additional visits up to the five-year anniversary of planting (see pricing information here). Throughout the life of the tree, we’re a source of advice and referrals.
