Frequently Asked Questions
Who should I contact about having tree work performed?
First, make sure the tree is not on public property. Trees on public property are the responsibility of the respective municipality. If it is on your property, we always recommend having your tree work done by a company with an ISA Certified Arborist on staff. You can find a list of local tree care companies with arborists on staff here.

Why should I plant native tree species?
Am I allowed to prune/cut trees in the tree lawn in front of my house?
Can Savannah Tree Foundation perform a tree consultation for my property?
Should I top my crape myrtles?
No. It is a common myth that topping crape myrtles will cause them to flower more. Crape myrtles will flower on new growth, so just by keeping your tree healthy you can still enjoy flowers! Canopy reduction can be performed to avoid things like overhead powerlines, but this is different from topping.
