House Call: A 250 Year-Old Patient!

They don’t call Rockford the Forest City for nothing.  If you’ve been to the corner of Alpine and Spring Creek Roads you’ve seen one of our most spectacular residents:  a 250 year-old Burr Oak.  But even a great Oak starts to feel its age.

Tree Care’s arborists work develop an anti-aging program for the big Burr, involving the strategic pruning of dead wood, and the use of a cambistat tree growth regulator to gently and predictably slow growth…

Better yet, Tree Care provided these preservation efforts free of charge as a gift to “The Forest City.”
