Urban Forestry Manual (l) - Trees and Construction
Land development and construction are having a major impact on the urban forest. Key to minimizing this impact is to work with developers, local government, and citizens to plan for tree protection, maintenance, and replacement during these activities.
This unit first discusses how important it is to get involved in the land-development process. Then it reviews how construction activities damage trees. Methods of protecting trees before, during, and after construction are then discussed, with emphasis on tree-protection techniques. The last section discusses how site plans can be used as a tool for tree protection.
