Russell will focus on trees including assessing your yard for hazards and tree health assessments; how to handle tree damage and find professionals to do tree and other work beyond the skills of the homeowner. He will explain why trees are essential to the wellbeing of the Cape and although a downed tree can cause a power outage, trees can also be helpful during power outages and give all sorts of benefits that make us more resilient in the long run. He’ll also give some hints on what to expect with trees as a result of climate change so people can plan ahead.
