Caring for Your Trees
Arborists: The Unsung Tree-Care Pros
Who Keep Our Trees Growing Strong and Living Long
 
It's time to start preparing for your spring gardening and tree care needs. No one is better equipped to help get your trees ready for spring than a tree care professional, also known as an arborist. 

Professional, trained arborists know how to properly maintain trees for the safety of the public and the health of the tree. The best way to ensure your tree stays healthy is to hire a professional arborist. Watch this video to learn more about arborists.

Denver’s Office of the City Forester provides a helpful list of tree care professionals in Denver.
