To promote the health of the urban forest, Urban Forestry Servicesí takes a holistic approach to tree care that focuses on improving the health of trees in an urban environment. Trees in urban forests are exposed to severe environmental stresses such as poor and compacted soil, drought, air pollution, damage from construction, poor planting or pruning techniques and much more. Trees planted on the right sites and that are properly maintained, are less likely to become stressed and are more resistant to insect pest and disease problems.
Urban Forestry Services promotes insect pest and disease management programs that are environmentally, socially and economically sound.
