Trees and Your Community

Article Summary: 

This article emphasizes the importance of trees for condominium communities, as they offer various benefits such as improved air quality, reduced energy consumption, noise pollution reduction, water runoff management, and increased property values. Despite these advantages, trees are often overlooked assets in condominium corporations. The article advises conducting a tree inventory to assess the condition of the tree stock, followed by proactive maintenance, such as pruning and soil care, to extend the life of existing trees. The author recommends prioritizing trees in the worst condition for removal and implementing a succession plan for gradual tree replacement. The selection of tree species should consider diversity, size, canopy, drought and disease tolerance, and their support of wildlife. Engaging residents in tree care and increasing awareness about the benefits of trees are also encouraged to sustain the urban forest and mitigate the effects of climate change.
