Can the Urban Forester answer questions about trees on my own property?

Yes, although there are some limits. Since a holistic Urban Forestry program involves helping to establish tree canopy in the entire city, on both public and private land, we are more than happy to answer questions about trees on your own property when time allows.

Note: We cannot provide legal advice, settle disputes between neighbors, or make judgments or determinations about the safety of private trees. If you need help in this manner, please contact the Ohio Chapter ISA or use their Find an Arborist tool.
