TREE MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT and SPECIFICATIONS
Immediately after planting
1. Watering: Water each plant immediately and continue watering until bubbles stop rising in the watering basin. After water has soaked away, add additional soil as needed. Plants with the top of the root-ball below surrounding soil grade must be dug up and replanted so the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil grade.
2. Mulching: Top-dress with 4 inches of shredded wood chips, bark or other organic material in a 3 to 4 foot radius around the plant. Keep mulch away from the tree trunk.
3. Staking: A) Remove the grower’s trunk stakes, ties, labels and trunk protectors. B) Support staking is NOT typically recommended or approved for funding. Although staking information is included with award materials, it is not an indication of funding approval or need. If staking is needed for a top-heavy tree or a tree that is incapable of standing alone, drive two stakes into the ground at a right angle to the prevailing wind just outside the perimeter of the planting hole. Use broad, soft strapping material such as woven belt fabric or green plastic horticulture tie. For each stake, wrap strapping material around the tree at the lowest practical level to maintain it upright and fasten both ends to the same stake. It is important that the tree is still able to move at least 4”-6” after being staked. Cut off tops of stakes that might hit or rub the trunk or lower limbs. Stakes must be removed after one year. Additional staking information with illustrations is provided with the grant award.
4. Pruning: Limit pruning to the removal of injured, rubbing, or dead twigs and branches. Do not headback leader or lateral branches. Information on general pruning is provided with the grant award.

Extended Maintenance
1. The applicant assumes the responsibility of maintenance for 3 years following the date of planting. This includes watering, fertilizing, insect and disease control, weeding, pruning, removal of support stakes, etc. Watering maintenance includes adding new emitters after the second year and moving old emitters further away from the trunk. If using bubblers, additional bubblers may be necessary after the third year and water berms must be removed. Also, it is important to break down berms at the beginning of winter, so ice dams do not form around the base of the tree. Berms can be rebuilt each watering season, but are to be removed after three years.
2. The applicant is responsible for re-setting of any plants to an upright position or to proper grade as necessary and for the removal and replacement of any dead plant material for a period of three years.
COMPLIANCE INSPECTIONS
All trees must be alive, healthy, planted properly, and properly maintained for project to be considered completed. Applicant shall periodically inspect the project during the maintenance period and immediately remedy any deficiencies. The Nevada Division of Forestry or its designee shall periodically inspect the planting for compliance with grant requirements.
Agreement: I, the undersigned, HEREBY GIVE ASSURANCE THAT plants will be maintained according to the MAINTENANCE SPECIFICATIONS outlined above. Any modifications must be agreed upon by both the Nevada Division of Forestry and applicant.
