Winter Tree Care

Winter Tree Care Tips for Your Trees

Winter is a precarious time for your trees. They are doing a lot of internal work while appearing pretty much dead on the outside. It is up to you to help protect them from all that this season can bring, from sun scalding to dehydration.

Tree Branches Dying

Why Your Tree Branches May Be Dying

Everything seems to be going fine with your trees and you don’t notice anything going wrong, until one day you look up and your tree branches look to be dying. Sometimes, it is just one singular branch that isn’t getting leaves at a similar rate as the rest of them or maybe it is completely dead. You might notice that a cluster of branches are dying while the rest of the tree thrives. At worst, you may notice that all of your branches on your tree are failing to thrive.

Corrective Pruning

What You Need to Know About Corrective Pruning

Many people think that they do not need to prune their trees as long as they “look” okay to their eyes.

Trees For Curb Appeal

If you are looking to plant trees that are going to improve your curb appeal, whether you are planning to sell your home or not, it can be difficult to find the best ones for your home. You have to look at many different things, including the size and shape of your yard. Do you want a tree that grows wide and skinny? One that is shorter but can provide a lot of shade?

Trees For Urban Areas

Best Trees for Urban Areas

It can be difficult to plant trees in urban areas or “street trees” as some people call them. Why? The truth is that pollution from roads, the sometimes rough handling of cars and people, and just the lack of greenery around are things that other trees cannot handle. Sure, some trees might be able to grow, but they will not be able to thrive in an environment where they have concrete.

Crape Myrtle

Should You Get a Crape Myrtle Tree?

Crape Myrtles are one of the most popular trees because they are absolutely beautiful. They can also be quite popular because they grow quite quickly and they provide a bit of shade and color during all the seasons. The larger varieties, in particular, grow quite quickly, which is important for those who are planting trees to raise the value of their home. In general, Crape Myrtles are resilient and can withstand quite a bit of stress (either in the form of dehydration, children, and pests). More cold weather varieties becoming available, making them adaptable to more locations.

Trees Growing

Are Your Trees Growing as They Should?

Trees are some of the most beautiful things in our world, but they tend to go through the awkward stage that so many other things (including people) go through in life. They have a growth period where they are a bit gawky, a bit pimply, and they don’t always look their best. Sometimes, they don’t even smell all that great. Sound familiar? There are so many ways in which the “puberty” that trees go through imitates our own.

Brown Crunchy Evergreens

Your Evergreen is Brown and Crunchy — What Now?

There is so much beauty in an evergreen tree. When the rest of your trees are turning brown and dying during the autumn and winter months, they are standing lively and green.
