College Park, MD (January 9, 2012)- ACTrees members are invited to submit comments on revisions of the ANSI A300 national tree care standards. The period for public review is January 6 to February 5, 2012, for ANSI A300 Part 6- “Planting and Transplanting of Trees and Shrubs,” and January 6 to February 20, 2012, for ANSI A300 Part 7- “Integrated Vegetation Management.”
