LARGO – As part of the U.S. Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Matching Grant Program, crews from Davey Resource Group have completed work to inventory and assess the condition of the city of Largo’s urban forest.

A total of 12,049 trees along city rights-of-ways, parks and boundaries throughout Largo were evaluated through this program, according to a city press release.

The health of Largo’s urban forest directly affects the health of the community. Trees turn carbon dioxide into much needed oxygen, helping to improve air, water and soil quality and provide very necessary shade. The city now has the resources to establish a systematic program for tree care as well as to more accurately estimate future monetary, staff and equipment commitments.

Through use of the inventory and implementation of maintenance recommendations, public safety and the benefits trees provide to the community will be enhanced. Public trees, when properly maintained, return environmental, economic, and social benefits to the community, which far exceed the initial investments for planting, pruning, protection, and occasional removal.
