If you have a tree-related question or an idea for a topic to discuss, email them here. Arborists may make house calls, when needed, to assess tree questions on your property.Close up of man watering a tree

As summer nears and people head outdoors – and often under the cool shade of a tree – it's not unusual to get inquiries from local residents wondering how to keep their trees healthy during the area's hot and dry months. Common questions include: Why are my tree's leaves turning yellow and falling? How much water do trees need each week during summer's dry spell? Is it OK to prune my tree during the summer? How do I know if my shrubs have bugs?
