In this Palo Alto Online column, Jeff Newborn from Davey's Menlo Park office shares how you can keep your trees safe in construction zones.

From heavy equipment being driven over roots, construction teams walking all over the property and a variety of machines coming through the yard, doing a remodel or taking on a large outdoor project can be stressful on your trees and the land.

This heavy foot-traffic and machinery can leave the soil compacted and cause it to lack the proper aeration and nutrients needed to help trees and plants survive.
