Oh No! Your trees were damaged during the construction!

Inevitable, no matter how hard we plan for our trees to remain healthy, accidents happen.  Especially during a construction phase, it is easy for trees to succumb to various ailments from being damaged through the process.  Here are a few tips on what you can do if your tree became damaged during construction.

~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.


Anything else that seems more severe would require the attention of a tree service or a certified arborist.
