Irrigation Information - Though we may not be able to fathom a time when the ground is fully thawed and we need to worry about drought, irrigation is fundamental to the health and success of your landscape plants. In ground irrigation systems already in place should be checked for proper functioning and repaired where and if necessary, while being careful not to damage or greatly disturb vegetation. Similarly, if you plan to install an irrigation system, be sure to have... http://ow.ly/2WzYxS

Vernal Ventures - Spring has sprung…or so the calendar says, perhaps it should inform the thermometer. Either way, eventually the thaw will come, mud will abound and we will already be behind schedule with our landscaping and gardening tasks. Here is a quick checklist of things you could aim to accomplish before the season is actually upon us, it is based on hardiness zone which you can find on the map below. If you are in Hardiness Zone 3, now is the time to; Prune bac... http://ow.ly/2WtOQh

Habitat Hindrance - A recent study published in the journal Scientific Advances, investigates the effects on ecosystems of habitat fragmentation occurring around the world. This research, led by scientists at North Carolina State University and made up of more than 12 collaborating research teams globally, has found that 70% of existing forested lands are within a half mile of the forest edge. This subjects the habitat to encroachment from agricultural, suburban and urb... http://ow.ly/2Wn1ss

National Agriculture Day - Agriculture plays an essential role in every person’s life each day, yet many of us do not know or appreciate how our food is produced. As part of a nationwide effort to educate people about the immense effort which goes into growing food and the importance of agriculture in our daily lives, The American Council of Agriculture founded National Agriculture Day in 1973, and this year’s celebration is set for March 18, 2015. This is an especially... http://ow.ly/2W9CrJ

Avian Assistance - Spring is just around the corner, although it may not feel that way, and with it will come yard work such as raking, trimming, mowing, weeding, fertilizing, pest and disease control and more. Just remember when you are out and about cleaning up after this harsh winter and preparing your beds and gardens, do not disturb nesting birds, it is actually illegal! According the Migratory Bird Treaty (MBTA) act of 1972: “It is illegal for anyone to take, poss... http://ow.ly/2VXR2C

“Soils Support Agriculture” - 2015 has been named the “International Year of Soil” (IYS) and the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) has developed activities to support educational outreach, assigning a theme for each month of the year. March’s theme is “Soils Support Agriculture”. Soil is the source of the nutrients that human bodies require; we acquire these nutrients indirectly by eating plants which have gotten the vitamins and minerals from the soil, or by eatin... http://ow.ly/2VT7Yz

Shrinking Spring - While it may be nicer to go without knowing this, especially as this bitter winter drags on, apparently spring is getting shorter, by 30 seconds to a minute, each year. According to scientists at the National Weather Service (NWS) and Gavin Schmidt, Director with the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, when the Earth’s axis reaches a halfway point where is it equidistantly not pointing at the sun or away from it (think summer and winter solstices), o... http://ow.ly/2WwUj1

Puzzling Ponderosa Pines - Officials with the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) are puzzled over a seemingly new disease affecting ponderosa pines (Pinus ponderosa) in the region. They are discouraging culling trees with discolored needles until they can determine the underlying cause of the disease; this may mean waiting until June when the ponderosa pines produce new needles. According to Tom Eckberg, an IDL forest health specialist, “It has no rhyme or reason and doesn... http://ow.ly/2WqwVu

Landscape Losses - While it may be out of sight, out of mind, damage is being incurred by high foot or vehicle traffic on your landscape throughout the winter, but is especially concerning now when soils are beginning to thaw. Soil conditions currently range from still being frozen, to being partially thawed and some areas are both frozen and thawed depending on soil depth and location. Damage can be most severe when the top several inches of soil is thawed, while deepe... http://ow.ly/2WhMYY

International Day of Forests! - March 21, 2015 has officially been declared the International Day of Forests, by the United Nations General Assembly. As the most biologically diverse, terrestrial ecosystems forests provide habitat and food for wildlife, act as a sink for carbon, help improve and protect water quality and provide jobs and shelter for communities around the world. Forests play a critical role in helping the planet cope with climate change by absorbing car... http://ow.ly/2W6jOk

Deforestation Danger - While the previously known dangers of deforestation are already severe and somewhat grim; less carbon absorption, loss of habitat, biodiversity decreases etc. a new study indicates that it could also be exposing more people to deadly, infectious diseases like the Bubonic plague. While societies of the western world have largely forgotten about the “Black Death”, the plague, transmitted by bites from fleas infected with the bacterium Yersinia pesti... http://ow.ly/2VVQXc

Weevil Woes - Black vine weevils, Otiorhynchus sulcatus, are primarily pests of species in the genera Taxus and Rhododendron. The weevils also target azaleas, mountain laurel and Euonymous. Adult black vine weevils feed on the leaf and needle margins, leaving distinct half-circular notches. Larvae appear similar to grubs you would find in your lawn except they are less “C” shaped and lack the thoracic legs. They feed in the spring on fine roots and in the fall will chan... http://ow.ly/2VQjxH
