Carol Kwan, ISA Certified Arborist
Qualified Tree Risk Assessor
The urban forest provides numerous benefits to people and the environment. Trees provide shade, cool the surrounding air, provide screening for privacy or to hide unsightly views, improve air quality, reduce storm-water runoff, and reduce energy consumption. They also provide habitat for birds and other wildlife in urbanized areas. They do all of this while making our towns and cities more attractive places to live.
While trees in our urban and suburban environments provide us with many benefits, we need to provide them with the care that they need to continue to be assets to their communities and their owners. Trees may develop health problems and need diagnosis by a professional to determine the cause and recommend treatment. Perhaps a construction project is planned around a tree. In this case, the tree’s protection plan greatly increases its chances of long term survival. There may be concerns about what risks a tree poses to persons and/or property or whether a tree’s roots could be threatening utilities or building foundations. Whatever the reason, a Certified Arborist trained in those areas of expertise is the person to consult.
