The Empire State and snow are a match made in winter heaven, but sometimes the things we use to help get by the snowy, icy conditions ends up in your parks and yards.red truck removes snow for a path

"We've been having a lot of snow, a lot of cold conditions that usually lead to an accumulation and need for outside resources to help mitigate those situations," said arborist Lukas Suzano. "The use of salt can be okay, but excess salt can have also negative impacts when referring to our landscapes."

"A homeowner, if you're not really sure of what's going on with your tree, if you start to notice any signs of decline over the wintertime, the best thing you can do is contact your local arborists to come out and take a look at your trees with you," he continued.

Suzano and other arborists across the state can help with advice on what to do to protect these spots, or even get the process started by knowing where to start looking for issues.
