    RE: Tree ID - 2 Trees

    I thought Boxelder when I first glanced at the photos for #2, but Ash is probably a good call. I'd agree with Elm for #1, foliage has the jagged edges and is round-lobed, typical of an Elm tree.

    RE: When is the best season to branch trees?

    Depends on the tree. Some trees can be safely pruned throughout the year, while others are best pruned during the early Spring before bud break. The general rule of thumb is to prune to the branch...

    RE: Misting Trees

    Wetting down foliage can encourage fungal diseases and insect invasions over the Summer months, especially if you are wetting the foliage at night. Otherwise, as QQ mentioned, it's really the roots...

    RE: Should a 10' Bur Oak be producing acorns?

    I've always planted my trees up on mounds 6-10" above grade (in addition to removing soil if the tree was containerized before planting). The mounds add a couple of benefits - first, they keep the...

    RE: Should a 10' Bur Oak be producing acorns?

    Oaks generally don't have too much of an issue with circling roots, this is more of a problem with Maples, such as Norway Maples. Usually you can tell if circling roots are an issue based on surface...

    RE: Should a 10' Bur Oak be producing acorns?

    RE: Should a 10' Bur Oak be producing acorns?

    My Swamp White Oaks produced acorns the first year I planted them, bought them from a nursery and they were all about 10-12' tall, so I suppose it's possible they were 8-10 years old. Sometimes trees...

    RE: Young Trees with Split trunks

    The "smaller" branch that forks off to the right in your top photo could probably be pruned off during the early Spring before the tree comes out of dormancy (bud break). While it's young, the more...

    RE: Young Trees with Split trunks

    Bark splitting is fairly common on young trees (especially Maples) and occurs during the Winter months. You can cut down on this if you wrap the tree with "trunk wrap" during the Fall, most home and...
  14. RE: Help with Tree ID Found Growing in the Yard

    Cedar is a great choice for mulch and shouldn't acidify your soil any more than any other type of mulch (in fact, anything that decomposes into the soil tends to acidify slightly as it decays) - I...
