  • Hire certified arborists to give impartial opinions.
  • Use the website to actively encourage input and suggestions.
  • Post your CC&Rs on the website so all residents have easy access.
  • Send an email blast giving the location/reasons for each tree removal ( premium only)
  • Start an online discussion where all voices can be heard.
  • Obtain any/all required permits from the city.
  • Give ample warning on the website if any road/trail closures.
