JUST SAY NO TO VOLCANO!
DUMP THE HUMP!
LET THE FLARE SEE THE AIR!
CHILL WITH THE HILL!


Thousands of trees are planted each year but many are planted incorrectly, too low and with mulch piled around the base. These practices cover the root flare of the tree - the area where the trunk meets the roots. The root flare is critical for oxygen exchange and proper root growth.

When it is covered up, roots circle around the base restricting the tree’s ability to transport water. The bark begins to rot. The tree can suffocate and die. We want the trees planted to be successful and live long, happy lives. Join us to learn how to properly plant and take care of a tree.

We’ll analyze the trees at Mitchell’s to see if they need some help and if so, we will fix them.

Presenter: Colby Sattler, ISA Certified Arborist, Forest City Ecological Services
