Trees that grow in the surroundings can be classified into two types: natural forest and urban forest. They differ in terms of growth, care and maintenance.
For the trees growing in natural forests can take good care of their own. Furthermore, there is no further care and attention required from people for them to develop and flourish. Their leaves will just fall into the ground, decompose and create soil abundant in organic matters. Then, they will give nutrients and retain water right after rainy days. These days will also reproduce and plant themselves to locations where they could grow and survive. As a group, they will share the challenges brought by strong winds and storm.
On the other hand, this situation is completely different from the trees growing in urban forests. People can plant the trees to places where they want to and not necessarily to areas they need to be planted. In fact, this urban environment is considered a threat to these trees. Artificial surfaces and compacted soils that are not absorbing water, physical damages to roots and limbs, and extreme summer heat can be so attractive to diseases and insect damages on the trees. Thus, urban forests require extensive planning, care and management.
