Bulletin #14: How to Kill a Tree

Understandably, not many publications are printed to inform people how to kill trees! To order more of this tongue-in-cheek issue for distribution, visit the order page.

Poster Available

The International Society of Arboriculture has a colorful 18″ x 22″ poster available with the title, “How to Kill a Tree.” The poster illustrates many of the malpractices that affect trees. For ordering information, phone 888-ISA-TREE or visit

Booklets and More

There are many helpful booklets on the positive side of tree care. Browse the Arbor Day Foundation’s publications and specifically take a look at Trenching and Tunneling Near Trees, a 32-page illustrated booklet that clearly shows how to save trees when installing underground utilities or excavating near tree roots. Although it is directed primarily to utility workers and other professionals, anyone who trenches near trees should have this booklet. Available here for $3.
