The Arborists Resource for Tree Identification and Forest Fire Risk 

The Arborist's Resource for Tree Identification and Forest Fire Risk has recently been made available to me and as I have many Amercian visitors to my website I hope that you'll find the information helpful.

It is based on American research and educational programmes but I thought much of it would also apply to trees and fire risk in the New Forest too. Every year I see New Forest fire risks as I drive around, it never hurts to get as much info as you can - does it? 

I hope you find it helpful and also interesting.

Tree-trimming is an integral part of overall tree maintenance. Pruning trees at the correct time of the year will encourage healthy growth. Trimming also removes dead and diseased branches, which helps keep trees healthier. Arborists study not only tree-trimming and tree removal but also forest maintenance to keep trees healthy.
