TREES
are some of our best friends

TREES
provide shade, beauty,
homes for wildlife, wood products, paper
and many other
BENEFITS.

TREES
provide these benefits
ONLY
as long as they are
HEALTHY.


"Your Tree's Trouble May Be You!" is a companion to "A Tree Hurts, Too". They are part of a Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture program designed to provide information on the wise use and care of trees...some of our most versatile and renewable natural resources.

This booklet was prepared by tree specialists in the Northeastern Area, State and Private Forestry from information developed by research scientists at the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. Both units are headquartered in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
