New Publication Released – “Tree Owner’s Manual”

tree-owners-manual_coverThe “Tree Owner’s Manual”, developed by the U.S. Forest Service Northeastern Area (NA), has recently been released and  is now available via the web.

With hopes of increasing the number of healthy, long-lived landscape trees, the Forest Service has created a Tree Owner’s Manual.  Just like the manual that comes with automobiles and appliances, this booklet includes a parts diagram, instructions for installation, tips for troubleshooting, and more.  And like other manuals, hopefully it will be kept in a familiar spot and used as a reference over the course of the tree’s life.  Organizations are encouraged to copy and distribute the booklet to tree owners everywhere.

For additional information on the publication, please visit:

Also, a webcast featuring the Tree Owner’s Manual is scheduled for April 15th at 11:00 AM.  Please visit for more information on the session.
