Landscape trees are dying prematurely. In many cases, this is because the correct care is not given at the time of planting and throughout the tree’s life. To help remedy this issue, the United States Forest Service has created a Tree Owner’s Manual. Just like the manual that comes with automobiles and appliances, this booklet includes a parts diagram, instructions for installation, tips for troubleshooting, and more. And like other manuals, hopefully it will be kept in a familiar spot and used as a reference over the course of the tree’s life.
