Tree care to be discussed this Saturday at Bell Memorial.


The City of Milton, an Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA, will host a free tree care informational event this Saturday, March 10, at Bell Memorial Park from 9 a.m. to noon.

This event is a required component of the city's current tree inventory. Two consulting arborists from Davey Resource Group, along with city staff, will be on site to discuss proper tree care, mulching, pruning, signs of disease, tree species identification and answer any questions the public might have about the tree inventory.

“Residents can learn how the inventory information will be gathered and how it will be utilized,”
said Mark Law, Milton’s arborist. “Additionally, the city will perform future inventories and will need volunteers to assist in this endeavor, so we’ll be taking contact information for interested residents.”
Law also said residents who would like to be on a contact list for future tree inventory projects can e-mail him at if they cannot make the event Saturday.

This project is funded by the Georgia Forestry Commission's Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program and is the first step toward a tree management and maintenance plan.
