Tree Care

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second best time is now. - Chinese proverb

When we plant a tree, we are doing what we can to make our planet a more wholesome and happier dwelling-place for those who come after us if not for ourselves. — Oliver Wendell Holmes

Drought & Trees

In our dry prairie summer and fall seasons one of the most valuable things that can be done for our trees is to water them. Even the city boulevard trees will thank us for providing some extra moisture.

The International Society of Arboriculture has excellent information for tree owners on general tree health.
