At the City Council Meeting on October 23, 2007, Mr. Tom Campbell, Urban Forest Program Specialist with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture, presented a plaque to the Mayor and City Council designating Slidell a “Tree City USA”. 

 Before a hurricane threatens

Well before a hurricane shows up on our doorstep, large shade trees should be checked carefully to make sure they’re in good shape. If work needs to be done, you can find arborists and tree removal services that can do work for you in the yellow pages under “Trees.” If possible, get several estimates for any work before you decide, and make sure the company you choose is state licensed. The time to take care of this is now, not when a hurricane threatens.

Look at the overall condition of large trees. A tree that is sickly, low in vigor and shows significant signs of rotten or decayed areas in the trunk or termite damage should be cut down if it poses a threat to buildings. Large trees can impact more than your property, so you should consider how your tree might affect neighboring properties as well. Also, look for any large, dead branches. These should be removed, especially if they pose a threat to a building or other structure.
