In this WCVB 5 segment, Josh Fritz from Hartney Greymont, a Davey company, and Dan Herms, vice president of research and development at the Davey Institute, talk about climate change and climate facing trees.  

Posted: November 04, 2022

Trees play a critical role in managing our ecosystems, but many of our favorite Massachusetts trees are in trouble as our climate warms. 

As temperatures warm, certain species of trees, such as the sugar maples, are dying, and local arborists have seen the trend accelerate during the past decade. 

“A hundred years ago, Concord was loaded with sugar maples along the road right here. In the past 100 years, they’ve actually been in decline because the temperatures have been rising,” said Joshua Fritz, a certified arborist with Hartney Greymont, a Davey company. “Concord is a very progressive town. They really care about their trees. Where I come in, I try to keep those trees thriving."
