“The economy is tight and everyone needs to “watch” their budget. However, the cheapest price isn’t always the best value!”

One of our customers went with the “lower” cost estimates and she so regretted it. She lives on an acre and had beautiful, mature trees that she just wanted trimmed and shaped. She hired a tree company and they mistakenly CUT DOWN ALL THE TREES! She is now starting over with small “bucket” trees. Her beautiful trees are gone. BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU HIRE. Cheapest price doesn’t always translate into the best value.

tree during winterIt may seem like your tree is inactive during the winter months. However much like your care they need to winterized! The fact is they continue to regulate their metabolism and only slow down some physiological activities. This decrease in photosynthesis and transpiration begins a tree’s dormant phase. Trees still continue to slowly grow roots, respire and take in water and nutrients. Winter is a difficult time for a tree. Call us for a free estimate on how to keep your trees healthy and safe for the winter!

The tree pictured is a ‘Winter King’ Green Hawthorne gets its name from the outstanding profusion of winter-persistent red berries.

burn real woodNow that the fall chill is in the air..nothing can create a warm filled environment like a real fire burning in the fireplace. Keep in mind that this is not an efficient way to heat your home!

We do have firewood for sale and there a just a few things to keep in mind when looking for wood:

Quality

“The quality of the wood depends upon many factors, including what kind of tree it comes from and how long it has aged. Different types of wood have different characteristics, including amount of heat, length of burn time, aroma, smoking and sparking. There are many types of trees, and therefore many different woods. Some of the top woods for burning are: Apple, Ash, Beech, Birch Cedar, Cherry, Hazel, Holly, Hornbeam, Larch, Laurel, Maple, Oak, Pear, Pine, Plum, Thorn, Walnut and Yew. The woods from fruit trees, such as Cherry, Apple, and Plum tend to be the most pleasant smelling.

Please also have a screen in place so no sparks fly out and cause damage!

Also ask if the wood is seasoned! If it is green it will smolder and will not burn as nicely! And it might just be smokey!

Price

“In order to comparison shop for wood, it is important to understand a few terms. Find out is the price is based on a cord, face cord, pickup truckload or some other amount. The manner in which the wood is stacked, what kind of truck is used and how the truck is loaded are all important to know when comparing quantity.

Cord: A stack approximately four feet high, four feet deep, and eight feet long.

Face Cord: A less precise standard measurement then the Cord. It usually means a stack equal in height and length but will less depth compared to a standard Cord.”

Delivery

When shopping for firewood, ask if the price includes delivery and stacking. How the firewood is cut and stacked is important, Proper storage of the wood ensures that the wood will continue to season properly. Do not cover the stacked wood with a canopy, it causes the condensation to remain in the wood.

Enjoy your fireplace and remember always open the chute!

Depending on the growth of the palm, a good time to trim can range from May, June, July. You want to always trim “after” the seed pods have come out.

Palms produce a leaf at a time, and once a full crown of leaves is achieved in a mature individual (for some palms this is just 4-5 leaves) every new leaf formed is followed by an old leaf dying. If these Palm tree fronds are yellow, brown or broken they need to be trimmed off.

Take a look at your palm tree and start to think of how to help it achieve it’s full greatness and be a beautiful addition to your yard!
