~Repairing Damaged Trees~
After construction activities have ended, it is important to provide a level of care to trees to help them overcome any unintended damage. It can take trees years to recover from construction damage, so be dilligent!
~Aftercare - Following Up~
• Watering – make sure the tree is getting sufficient water, especially if an excavation has caused roots to dry out or die
• Mulching – mulching around the base of the trees helps the tree retain moisture and protect it from lawnmowers and other potential hazards.
• Monitoring – keep an eye out for sudden changes in the tree's appearance, drying or wilting of leaves, dieback, or other symptoms of potential problems.
