In this Las Vegas Review Journal article, Davey technical advisor and pollinator ecologist Adam Baker explains the importance of including pollinator-attractive plants in your landscape. 

As our knowledge of the natural environment continues to grow, many homeowners are starting to put more thought into the design and planning of their landscapes. The native plant movement, which is great for sustainability, begs for the inclusion of pollinator-attractive plants. Why you may ask?

“There are a couple of reasons I think people are doing this,” says Adam Baker, technical advisor and pollinator ecologist with the Davey Tree Expert Co. “There’s a paradigm shift occurring where people are getting away from planting the same old non-native ornamentals that they have been for the last 50 years. They’re looking to diversify their landscapes by utilizing native and pollinator attractive plants to support bees, butterflies, birds and other animals.”
