Common Landscape Misconceptions

Misconceptions are ideas that are not true. There are a number of misconceptions when it comes to landscape practices. If not corrected, these misconceptions get passes over the course of time. Sometimes these misconceptions can become widespread. The professionals at the Landscape Management Association would like to set the record straight and explain some of the landscape misconceptions they commonly see practiced.

Hurricane Irma’s high winds left thousands of toppled trees in its wake, and the recovery work related to Hurricane Harvey continues.  As employees in the tree care industry work to remove trees and debris in the recovery effort, they should be aware of the hidden dangers of downed power lines, wildlife, and the hazards of the equipment they are using.  OSHA knows safety will continue to be a priority, and we are here to help.  OSHA’s hurricanes and floods, and tree care industry online resources, and our toll free number (800-321-6742) are available 24 hours a day.
