Responding to the community's need for help in planting trees in Reno’s North Valleys, American Arborists staff and families volunteered their time to plant 11 out of 20 trees at Silver Lake Park. They joined over 600 volunteers for the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful - Great Community Clean up on April 27th. (Arbor Day was April 26th). The volunteers helped to increase the tree canopy in the North Valleys. Trees are of great importance to our lives but can sometimes be taken for granted or forgotten. Trees not only create oxygen and help clean the air, they also help reduce energy costs because they provide shade which lower temperatures in the hot summer months by as much as 20%, which can result in lower energy bills. Trees can also provide esthetic value and increase property value. Trees can also be a hazard, so it’s important to recognize when a tree is sick or diseased. Arborists in our community want to help increase the awareness on the importance of trees, and help the community think differently when it comes to tree care. An Arborist is a professional in the practice of arboriculture which is the cultivation, management and study of individual trees & shrubs. Arborists possess the extensive knowledge of tree biology, tree selection, urban forestry, and soil science, and can guide you through the tree selection and planting process.
We can monitor your trees annually and keep you safe, and estimates are always free. You have nothing to lose.
