Beware of so-called tree experts who do not understand tree biology.
Storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions keep reminding us
that we are not the boss.
Some people will buy products they do not understand and not buy books that
will give them understanding.
Thanks for taking time to reply.
I don't mulch; fertilize; prune ;
it has been in the ground, striving for 15 years or so ;
Anyone have any ideas or experience with honeylocust plant bug ?
Proper mulching can help increase the vitality of your tree along with an
application of microelements essential for the tree.
You lack of correct mulching can cause problems in the rhizosphere. The
thought is written here:
Trees, young can self wound themselves and some proper corrective pruning
If you increase the health of the tree by the latter the chances to have
these secondary organisms is low.
