With spring around the corner it is time to start thinking about having some tree work done. We encourage you to hire a certified Arborist for all your tree care work. They are insured, trained, educated and qualified to determine what measures are needed, how the tree will respond to any pruning cuts and have the skills needed to carry out tree care work. We also encourage you to hire local companies who understand how trees grow and react to our local weather conditions, and many of whom have been very helpful volunteers with NeighbourWoods.
ALSO, PLEASE DO NOT move firewood. This practice is responsible for spreading tree diseases – witness the Emerald Ash Borer. With fatal Oak Wilt at our doorstep in Windsor, our best defence is to keep and use firewood locally. Please share this!
