Your Urban Forester Consulting Partner

Trees provide numerous benefits to our communities, and these benefits add up to dollars, both in savings and added value.  

Unfortunately, many communities do not have the luxury of a staff forester. It is still vital that good forestry decisions are made so the community remains safe, beautiful, and sustainable.  

Maier Tree & Lawn can help in several ways. As a consultant, we can assist in developing a forest management plan. This would involve a tree inventory and a tree risk assessment 

We can also develop specifications and/or administer contracts for the planting, pruning, or removal of trees; education and staff training; tree preservation during construction; and involvement in community forestry awareness programs such as Arbor Day. 

Tree Risk Management in Southeast Minnesota

Tree Risk Management

Where trees and people coexist, trees must be monitored closely. Their towering form can become the very thing that ruins property or injures people. Communities need to know which trees are more likely to fail or cause other problems.  

Balancing the goals of public safety with a healthy urban forest is extremely complex and should only be done by a trained forester.  

A tree risk management program should be incorporated into every phase of a community's forestry program, from planning and planting to pruning and removal. 

Tree planning in Rochester, Minnesota

Tree Inventory

The first step involved in managing is to find out what you have. For a community forest, this is done through a tree inventory.  

At a very minimum, this inventory tells you the number, species, size, and condition of your trees.  

Maier Tree & Lawn can perform this inventory on software that is compatible with other city planning software. This information can be used in planning and/or in the daily operations of tree and landscape crews. 

Tree Protection near Rochester, Minnesota

Tree Preservation During Construction

As a community grows, there is inevitably construction around trees. A plan needs to be in place to protect those trees, both on the boulevards and in forest developments. If there is no plan, many dollars may needlessly be spent removing valuable, beautiful trees that could have been saved.
