Young trees get a helping hand during Arbor Week

From page A4 | March 16, 2014 |

Tree Davis, the city of Davis and PG&E are joining forces to celebrate California Arbor Week by taking care of young trees in Davis.

Recently, Tree Davis and the city partnered with PG&E to employ a bicycle tree monitor to gather vital statistics on almost 1,000 trees planted over the past several years in Davis. While the monitor found that most trees were in “good” or “excellent” condition, some trees need additional care, including weeding, stake removal and pruning.

To address these concerns, volunteers from PG&E and ACRT, an independent vegetation management company, will remove more than 100 tree stakes citywide.

“We truly appreciate the support of PG&E to help us monitor young trees in and around our city,” said Keith McAleer, executive director of Tree Davis. “We look forward to organizing more tree care events this spring to address … issues found by our monitor. … The more issues we can address while trees are young, the less likely it will be that they will have issues later on.”

California Arbor Week is a statewide initiative with a goal to unite cities, businesses and individuals to educate Californians on the value trees provide to building successful and healthy cities and neighborhoods. It takes place every year from March 7 through 14 and is led by California Releaf, a statewide consortium of urban forestry nonprofits, of which Tree Davis is a member.
