So many things come to mind when we think of trees. The silent protectors, trees are faithful public servants which often go unnoticed in our day-to-day lives. For some, a tree is a stunning view or a family heirloom. For others, a tree is an environmental warrior, a childhood fortress, a gateway to experiencing nature or a component of infrastructure. Unfortunately, at times a tree can be a risk or a burden when planted in a less than ideal location or when improperly maintained.
The information here is meant to help Edmond citizens to care for their trees in a way that will result in the tree’s best health and structure, while providing benefits for those citizens and the surrounding areas.
