So you're worried about that tree on your property, but you're not sure what to do. Fortunately, Milton has a free resource for you on Saturday, March 10.
Milton, which earned the designation as an Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA, will host a free tree care informational event at Bell Memorial Park from 9 a.m. to noon.
Two consulting arborists from Davey Resource Group, along with city staff, will be on site to discuss proper tree care, mulching, pruning, signs of disease, tree species identification and answer any questions the public might have about the tree inventory.
Residents can stop by at anytime during the 3-hour event; it is informational and has no schedule.
This event is a required component of the city's current tree inventory. This project is funded by the Georgia Forestry Commission's Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program and is the first step toward a tree management and maintenance plan.
