Sustainable Living: Exploring the Relationship Between Home Development and Trees
On this episode of Building Roots, two of Treenewal’s ISA Certified Arborists, James Allen and Cory Herpel, discussed the importance of taking a proactive approach to maintaining healthy trees in developing communities. They highlighted the need for involving an arborist early in the process, before any construction takes place, to minimize root damage and other stress factors on existing trees.
The importance of selecting tree species that are best suited for their location’s environmental conditions rather than choosing based on aesthetics was also discussed. Overwatering, for instance, can lead to saturated soil conditions and increase the likelihood of fungal infestations.
In conclusion, proper tree maintenance can help reduce potential risks associated with poor practices, such as declining property values and safety hazards caused by falling branches or weakened tree trunks during extreme weather events like storms and hurricanes.
