That's truly frightening.

that really is frightening. Tree worship? Sitting in the woods and screaming and crying for theRead More trees will change nothing. Meanwhile, in the real world, there are veterans who are homeless and lonely, children on the streets with nowhere to go, people going hungry, elderly in nursing homes with no one who cares about them...maybe a better use of their time would be to help these...I bet the trees would agree.

The odd thing is that those morons are walking and sitting on all sorts of plants, including theRead More seedlings of trees. In a clearing like that there are about two tree seedlings in a square foot.

I've been running a soaker hose over and around a young line of trees trying to do twice a week-Read More longer than what you are suggesting - as they don't get as much water from the soaker ... we couldn't possibly run a hose on each tree as we have to many trees - not enough time - so ... here's to hoping that this will work - !! ??? we're trusting that this is not last much longer ... hard to pray for rain here - I'm worried about our yard we have farmers worried about our crops - praying for end of drought ... slr

We had our majestic ash cut down in July 2010 because it had simply come to the end of its 40-50Read More year lifespan. A new honey locust (3 or 4 inch diameter trunk) took its place, but this spring, the top branches didn't bud so of course we were concerned. We were told to water every 7-10 days to try and even out the trauma it was feeling from our odd winter and this crazy summer weather. We've been watering it via sprinkler (along with the rest of the grass) once a week and the leaves that did bud look so much better. We're hoping this means buds even up top next year!

Jonny, That is a rediculous price for the treatment and should be more in the 4-6 per inch area. IRead More would suggest re-quoting this with a less CORPORATE and more specialized tree service like American Arborists Tree Service or Farina Tree Care.

Thanks Matt! I am going to call them this week-- around $300-400 was what I had considered I wouldRead More be able to pay for this so that is perfect...

It seems like an often overlooked part of tree care is watching for broken branches. I remember thatRead More I didn't do this last year. Two of my trees have died, so I need to be more cautious about how they are fairing in the weather. Jayden Eden | http://www.timberlandtreecompany.com/Experienced_Arborists_Inglewood_CA.html
