Even the trees cannot converse with each other. Even the trees cannot communicate, but there is still someone out there who can listen and understand what you are going through. You may not have the support you need, but there are still people out there who can understand what you are through. Unfortunately, trees can be challenging to understand for the average person, whether it is a disease that requires treatment or growth that requires pruning, such as the care of trees near the city plan. As a result, arborists face a difficult challenge in preserving trees to thrive in urban environments.

Arborists are not just tree climbers and cutters, according to many people. However, an arborist will know exactly where to cut. Also, how to correctly prune the tree to keep growing. In addition, climbers like nurses are employed by arborists to aid in the recovery of trees that have been harmed.

Shortly, a Yang tree (Dipterocarpus alatus Roxb.) fell 14 trees on the Chiang Mai-Lamphun highway. Takedown a house. Pornthep Mueanpong, Lecturer in the Department of Forestry, Faculty of Forestry, Kasetsart University, was asked about this news. As the teacher put it, “the tree enthusiasts” want to keep the trees “as they were.” On the other hand, the people would prefer to have it taken down immediately. I do not think anyone wants to sleep every night in fear. This road is the solution to rubber tree conservation so that the tree and its inhabitants can continue to coexist in peace. To reduce traffic congestion, which directly affects the health of the trees, this road should only be designed to pass the cars of the local villagers. It is something I want to maintain, too.”

It is weak because it is surrounded by crushed concrete from road construction. The roots will snap if the containers are surrounded by concrete. It is also possible to trim the tree, which worsens the tree’s issues. The danger of falling and injuring passersby is always present because of this. In order to properly care for trees, one must be an arborist. You will be able to make better decisions if you are knowledgeable about trees and urban planning. It will make it easier for visitors to take a break by increasing the amount of green space. The lessons you have learned in the past should help us put your arborist skills to use with the help of a plant healer. People and trees can coexist peacefully in this environment.
