Advisory from the Shade Tree Commission
If you are concerned about the health of your trees or need confirmation that a tree is affected by bacterial leaf scorch, the Shade Tree Commission recommends you seek the advice and counsel of a certified tree expert before taking a tree down. Such consultation may prevent a healthy tree from being cut down.
