FAQ - Answer
Care of oaks around a recreational center is not different than trees located in other high traffic areas. Simple steps can be considered to insure the long-term health of your trees e.g. do not over irrigate oaks during the summer, do not park vehicles or other heavy equipment under oaks, limit disturbance of soil between the trunk and the drip line, apply limited and proper pruning techniques only to achieve specific objectives. As for student assistance, you might want to check with your local community college’s horticulture or an instructor to see if any possibilities exist in your area.
