Tree Care Information
The City of Delaware Shade Tree Commission, in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, has available a free publication to help tree owners keep their yard trees healthier and living longer.

The Tree Owners Manual (pdf) answers many common questions about planting, pruning and fertilizing, as well as how to spot signs of damage, injury and disease. Just like car and appliance owner’s manuals, the 40-page booklet includes a parts diagram, installation instructions, troubleshooting tips and recommended maintenance. Tree care information also is available through the Ohio State University Extension office.
