In recognition of Arbor Day tomorrow, the Nassau County Extension Office has released the below information to remind residents of the importance of trees and hiring a certified arborist to find a way to conserve them in your existing landscape.
From the Extension Office:
Did you know a healthy, mature tree can add a 9%-19% value to your home? No other landscape plant material adds that value. As we celebrate Arbor Day tomorrow, think about how we can properly care for and maintain our urban trees throughout Nassau County!
Recently, Nassau County staff worked with a local ISA Certified Arborist to help protect trees on Amelia Island near Fire Station #20 by doing regular maintenance. (Tree climbing is really cool, but takes lots and lots and lots of training). When we are concerned about trees within our landscapes, don't immediately think about tree removal- think about tree conservation. The benefits of trees are innumerable, so when wanting to hire an arborist for your landscape to discuss tree maintenance look for an ISA Certified Arborist. Luckily they can all be found here: https://www.treesaregood.org/findanarborist
