You may be responsible for the health of your city’s trees and urban landscape. It’s imperative that you protect valuable public trees, reduce liability, and manage costs within your budget. You can join the many cities like Chicago and Milwaukee who are consulting with Arborjet to manage invasive pests.
Successful Treatment Programs
Cities like Chicago; Milwaukee; St. Paul; Rochester, NY and dozens of smaller communities have initiated extremely successful treatment campaigns, saving their cities millions. Read through their Success Stories. There is little doubt that treatment is much less expensive than removal and replacement, while also being very effective.
Tree Value and Benefits
Trees provide tangible benefits to your community. On average, each 17 inch diameter ash tree provides $150 in value to your community each year. Calculate the benefits of your city’s trees using the National Tree Benefit Calculator.
Tree Removal vs. Treatment Cost
The average city owned tree costs from $750 – $1200 to remove, stump grind and replace. That same tree may be successfully kept alive for as little as $23 per year, while most cities are treating no more frequently than every third year. Trees, providing significant value to your city, can be protected for 20 to 30 years before the cost to remove and replace is equaled by treatment.
