Title: Tree Owner's Manual for the Northeastern Midwestern United States

Author: Johnson, Jill; Johnson, Gary; McDonough, Maureen; Burban, Lisa; Monear, Janette;

Date: 2008

Source: United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Area, State and Private Forestry, NA-FR-04-07

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: One common issue facing our urban forests is the fact that trees are dying prematurely. Many are planted improperly, setting them up for failure. Many do not receive regular maintenance. And few are adequately protected during construction projects. To help remedy this issue, the Forest Service has created this Tree Owner's Manual.

Just like the owner's manual that comes with automobiles and appliances, the Tree Owner's Manual includes a parts list, instructions for installation, tips for troubleshooting common issues, recommended service, and more.

Keywords: tree owners manual, prune trees, tree care, planting trees, watering trees, moving trees, tree root problems, mulching trees, tree trunk protection, tree health, tree maintenance, Midwest trees, northeastern trees, tree crown, tree dripline, NA-FR-04-07
