The Tree Commission also gener- ally uses species with small leaves and no fruit to avoid clogging the city's drainage system. As a young tree grows, Smith said it can be trained by cutting off the right branches. "Cut off the little branches you can see are going to grow into being a problem," Smith said. If a branch . will be too low over the sidewalk in 10 years, Cut it off now. Members of the Tree Commis- sion will happily assist residents in selecting an appropriate species for a given location. Smith said. Call her at (541) 367-5168 or Commu- nity Development Director Carol Lewis at (541) 367-8113 to reach a member of the Tree Commission. When hiring someone'to prune, Smith suggests telling the pruner exactly what you want - make sure they cut the branch all the way back. Again, the Tree Commission is willing to give advice on trees in Sweet Home and can help residents decide what to do. Poor pruning can create the results visible here - problems with suckers growing haphaz- ardly from the stumps of branches. Photo by Scan C.
