DescriptionThe goals of hazard tree management programs are to maximize public safety and maintain a healthy sustainable tree resource. Although hazard tree management frequently targets removal of trees or parts of trees that attract wildlife, it can take into account a diversity of tree values. With just a little extra planning, hazard tree management can be highly beneficial to wildlife while maintaining the goals of the program. The objective of this information guide is to provide considerations regarding wildlife when making decisions during hazard tree assessments. The decision-making model provided with this guide can be used as a tool during tree inspections.
