This initial BLOG will deal with the reality of the drought conditions in our area. We have been busy planting trees, both by manually digging holes and planting, and using a 60″ mechanical tree spade. I can attest, THERE IS NO MOISTURE IN THE TOP 60″ of soil!
What this means-
1. The drought is very real. Please get your hoses out, and water your trees and shrubs!
2. Pines and Evergreens are showing stress. If you start to see “brown tips” on either, this is an indication of stress on your trees and shrubs. This would also include Rhododendron and Azalea’s.
