There are many good sources of information, including your local Cooperative Extension office, the library, your local nursery or garden center, or a local arborist. Be sure that your source of tree information is up-to-date and is familiar with the latest research on landscape trees. Much of what was recommended for trees in the past has turned out to be unnecessary or even harmful to trees, so remaining current is very important. For general information related to landscape trees or community forestry contact the Utah Community Forest Council, Box 961, Salt Lake City, Utah 84110-0961.
