What is conservation arboriculture?

Conservation arboriculture is the natural art and science of tree management in historical landscapes and contexts.

 

It includes a holistic approach to tree management, which identifies a tree as an ecosystem itself, abundant in both above-ground and below-ground habitat for a wide variety of life. Ancient trees are home to communities of organisms living within their decaying wood, roots and the soil they occupy. 

 

Above-ground, ancient trees are home to many terrestrial and aquatic bird and mammal species, including wood-ducks, wood peckers, owls, sparrows, chipmunks, and flying squirrels.
