Urban Canopy Casualty - Louisville, KY recently conducted a study of its urban canopy and the results, which were just made public, are distressing to say the least. The city has been losing approximately 54,000 trees per year for the past several years, that amounts to the mortality of about 150 trees per day! Katy Schneider, co-chair of the Louisville Metro Tree Advisory Commission was involved in the research and states; “We have not managed this resource, up until n... http://ow.ly/2XaMkt

Ants’ Abilities - A study recently published in the journal “Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution” discussed ants’ ability to collectively search in zero gravity conditions. Researchers were happily surprised to find this when a collective of ants were taken to the International Space Station to study how these insects adapt to low or no gravity. While ants did still float away from the walls of their enclosure they were able to use their teamwork abilities to navigate an... http://ow.ly/2X4mrm

Great Gardens - Spring is a wonderful time to plan trips to the beautiful blooming gardens accessible to citizens around the world. National Geographic’s book Four Seasons of Travel ranked the top 10 gardens around the world, and while I won’t necessarily visit every famous piece of art while traveling abroad, I never miss a spectacular botanical garden or arboretum! The Kenroku-en garden in Japan has deep historical roots; developed by 17th century feudal lords it is a... http://ow.ly/2WVBYd

Lawn Care Current Conditions - So much of our grass and properties are still under snow cover in the northern regions, and while we are all anxious for it to melt, damage from the harsh winter may be revealed. It is important to have your arborist evaluate your property as early in the spring as possible, damage can be assessed and a treatment plan developed and implemented to help your property recover. Salt damage may be the worst at edges near to walkways, roads and ... http://ow.ly/2WR59V
Salt damage, snow mold and winter kill are common lawn maladies occurring on lawns following a severe winter.

Termite Tribulations - In research recently published in the journal Plos One, entomologists from the University of Florida postulate the emergence of a “super termite” created from the interbreeding of Asian and Formosan termites. These species of subterranean termites are some of the most destructive in the world, now there is alarming evidence that these species are interbreeding and creating new, even more destructive offspring.  These species have probably always b... http://ow.ly/2WKzMx

Best of Birch Trees - Birch trees can be a beautiful and productive asset on many landscapes. However, like most landscape plants, species have varying nutrient, light and moisture requirements and will only thrive on the right site with adequate care. The river or black birch, Betula nigra, grow best as a multi-stemmed specimen. It can grow 40 to 70 feet tall and will have variable cream, brown or reddish brown bark or a combination thereof. River birch grows best in s... http://ow.ly/2WBQec

Oak Wilt Warning-Tree Disease - Oak wilt is a tree disease affecting oak trees caused by the fungus Ceratocystic fagacearum. The disease has been found in 21 states causing the most damage in the midwest. It was first found in Wisconsin in 1944 where localized pockets of mortality were found;   nearly half the oaks an area of less than 100 acres were killed. No species of oak is immune or especially resistant to this disease, infections have been found on 16 native spec... http://ow.ly/2X7z9g
The high-risk period for oak wilt infection begins soon, this means that the potential overland transmission of the disease is very high.

Ancient Palm Procreates! - Named “Methuselah” for its extreme inveterate growth, the 2,000 year old Judean date palm has produced viable offspring! Agricultural expert Elaine Solowey from the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies at Kibbutz Ketura in Israel shared the good news with National Geographic; “He is over three meters [ten feet] tall, he’s got a few offshoots, he has flowers, and his pollen is good,” she says. “We pollinated a female with his pollen, a wil... http://ow.ly/2X0Kw8

Red Pine Scale Predicament - Native to the U.S. and New England, red pine, Pinus resinosa, populates many areas and has also been widely planted for its aesthetic appeal and to increase diversity of the white pine, Pinus strobus, dominated landscape, adding to soil conservation, wildlife mast and habitat and protecting other species from wind. Recently, however, red pines have, true to their name, begun to turn red. In 2012 Forest Health Specialists with the New Hampshi... http://ow.ly/2WTCwE

The Rise of Resistance - The annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) is a pest which, unfortunately, can develop resistance to commonly applied insecticides if and when they are applied too often or incorrectly. Some turf care specialists call this “making them angry”…and you won’t like them when they’re angry. Turning the tide on insecticide resistance can be very difficult, they best thing to do is to not get them angry in the first place, once the population has become resista... http://ow.ly/2WNXFc

Current Conditions - Many of us are still dealing with snow on the ground while other areas have already accumulated 1 growing degree day; growing degree days are a heuristic (an efficient problem solving approach employed to find faster, imperfect, yet sufficient solutions) tool for assessing phenology (the study of plant life cycle events and how they are affected by climate, habitat and other factors). Growing degree days are basically a measure of the accumulation o... http://ow.ly/2WHeS2
The singular growing degree day has not had much effect on plant development, however it has kept pests from emerging early.

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
Irrigation is fundamental to the health and success of your landscape plants, but needs to be carefully installed and maintained so as not to cause injury.
