It was last year when a professional arborist, Gretchen Musser, who also happens to be a landscape architect became the circuit rider representing the Georgia Urban Forest Council and she was assigned to cover a large part of the northern Georgia.
She shared that the program was made in order to reach out to the communities and to aid them in being aware of the existence of the Tree City USA which is a program by the National Arbor Day Foundation. This is also to help them be aware of other things such as tree ordinances, mitigation plans for the storm water and other different types of projects.
This is how she was able to come across with Chris Stearns who is the Dalton Tree Board’s chairman.
Dalton has been a consistent member of the program Tree City USA for around 26 years already. It also has its own Tree Board and its very own tree ordinance. What it was searching for is to start a new contract with an arborist.
Stearns shared that he had talked with Musser and he believes that she can be a good resource for Dalton.
It was more than two months already when Musser started working for Dalton as their new arborist and she only works every Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Musser revealed that she is tasked with dealing with plans and to ensure that if there are any development plans that will be passed that it will adhere to the existing tree ordinance. She is also working with various projects connected to the Tree Board and she is busy planting as well as spreading public awareness regarding the importance of the trees. She is also working hand in hand with public works together with parks and recreation in order to perform evaluation on trees that have failed in some ways or another. They decide whether the tree can be saved through proper pruning, another method or the last resort which is to remove the tree altogether.
