Tree Health and Safety Following the 1/9/18 Debris Flow Event


The catastrophic mud and debris flow event on the South Coast has left a layer of mud from several inches to several feet deep in many locations in the greater Montecito area. Beyond the obvious physical damage caused by the storm to the native oaks, sycamores and ornamentals that compose our urban forest, a much more insidious type of damage is quietly occurring: trees are suffocating.
