TREE PRESERVATION Joe Samnik, Consulting Arborist
Different people have different perspectives on tree preservation. The first thing a client, typically a developer thinks about regarding tree preservation is money; nothing wrong with that, and it’s perfectly understandable. The first thing a tree colleague thinks about when preservation is the subject is tree biology. Nobody is right and nobody is wrong. It’s always a matter of emphasis.
