From April 15, 2014 to June 15, 2014 Friendly Tree Experts is having an "Are Your Trees Friendly?" art contest, They will be accepting artwork, from both adults and children to win prizes, such as: donations to the Arbor Day Foundation, gift cards and tree care.
In addition to the art contest, they are giving the community a checklist to refer to and a Certified Tree Safety Professional to call for a free assessment of possible hazards. The contest rules and tree safety checklist are attached.
Friendly Tree Experts has also launched a tree hazard awareness and education program for the public to help make them aware of possible hazards on their property. They said that after three years of extreme weather, many area trees have suffered damage to their roots and limbs resulting in broken and hanging limbs that pose a serious hazard to the people of community.
The goal of the program is to inform homeowners and businesses what to look for in their trees and how to protect both themselves and their trees with preventive maintenance.
