  20. 20. Are your tree planting specifications killing your trees?
  21. 21. Think of planting as the process that starts with a site condition evaluation and ends with after care – Tree Planting BMPs, page 14
  22. 22. Pruning • Only prune dead, broken or diseased branches at planting • “To prevent development of codominant stems, remove or reduce the length of upright-oriented stems throughout the crown” (BMPs page 22) • ALWAYS maintain at least 2/3 green crown
  23. 23. Staking • “Shall not be specified or installed except when needed”(ANSI A 300 (Part 6) – 2012 64.6.1) • “[M]aterial should be wide, smooth, nonabrasive, flexible, and, if possible, photodegradable.” (BMPs page 23)
  24. 24. Remove after 1 year
  25. 25. Remove bamboo stakes • Allow tree to move – thigmotropism • Don’t block sunlight to one part of the trunk – phototropism • Remove all plastic ties to prevent girdling
  26. 26. Planting depth • 64.4.1 The final depth of the planting hole is determined by the depth … of the rootball … and shall not exceed the depth of the rootball” • 64.4.2 The depth of the rootball shall be measured from the bottom on the trunk flare to the bottom of the ball
  27. 27. “Planting flare roots too deep in the planting hole is the most common mistake made during planting” (BMPs p.18)
  28. 28. Correct root defects
  29. 29. Mulch! • 2-3 inches thick • Preferably organic material • As wide as practicable

  31. 31. WHEN MONEY IS NOT AN ISSUE JASON TRAWEEK THE CITY OF AUSTIN URBAN FOREST GRANT
  32. 32. History (2) As development in Austin began to accelerate, pressure on our urban forest increased and the City began to enforce the ordinance. Written into the environmental criteria manual was a condition that if trees were not able to be preserved, and onsite replacement was not entirely feasible, developers could pay in the tree mitigation fund at a specified amount per caliper inch. What was not clear at that time, was what would happen to those dollars.
  33. 33. [Pic of City Workers planting trees] Funding Portal Fortunately for me, a reorg around this time placed my program in a larger group that had fresh eyes on the situation We realized that other departments could use funding improve on their public projects, so we created an internal line of funding for other departments to apply for project funding. This was a great idea Yet, funds were still accumulating faster than we
