Trees, shrubs and lawns play an important role in the environmental health and appearance of the Herndon community. Maintenance of existing trees and shrubs is as important to the life span of the plant as the initial planting.  It is equally important to recognize signs of stressed and diseased trees to prevent hazardous conditions.
The Community Forester is available to provide advice to the residents of the Town on general lawn, shrub, and tree care. 

The Virginia Cooperative Extension is a recommended source for online information and guidance: 
Tree and Shrub Planting
Trees, Shrubs and Groundcovers
Lawn Care

The International Society of Arboriculture's website www.treesaregood.org also provides good informaton on a variety of topics related to trees and tree care.

Town residents can contact the Community Forester for assistance on assessing the damage to their trees.  If you experience damage to trees and shrubs due to a storm, you may need assistance with removal or pruning. The International Society of Arboriculture  maintains a list of certified arborists for this type of work.
