Speaking for the Trees
Trees are living organisms, and we should do all we can to protect them—especially all the wonderful species we have right here at home.
Recent reports of nails being driven into our trees necessitates a reminder that defacing Village trees, especially trees in and around the Aliso Creek area, which is a wildlife sanctuary, is prohibited.
Nails can damage the tissues responsible for moving water and nutrients throughout the tree’s system, prolonging the healing process and placing the tree under stress. Stressed-out, unhealthy plants are more vulnerable to pest or disease problems than healthy ones.
