"I think you would be better served by returning the dead material and seeing if you can get replacements. I'm sure you know that azaleas like it acidic and well-drained. Also, be sure you are not planting too deeply or the material itself…"

I plant trees because....
Latest planting story... Well, I got a group of Duke students to help out on a grounds day at my daughters' school last fall and planted a few very small beech seedlings around the perimeter fence. While I was instructing the planting volunteers I handed the keys to my '85 toyota mulch truck to a capable-looking youm man who insited he could operate a manual transmission. The smell of burnt clutch wafting across the field was the first indication that he was not being entirely truthful. The trees are still OK.

I was involved with a TLC project just to check on their work on a grant project.  I could have stood around and said, "Yep, they're doing the work described in their grant narrative."  But I hate that - just watching a small group work when I am perfectly able to pitch in and help accomplish the task at hand.  So I helped cut out some Eleagnus and got a better sense of what was being done with the grant funds.

Thanks.  I used to be a B&B grower but stopped field planting about 10 years ago when I got my landscape contractor's license.  Now I buy in most of my plant material but grow a few perennials and unusual woodies.

Thanks for sending that Alex. Just imagine how devastating it would be if every homeowner were to remove all branches hanging over their home. That would result in a drastic decrease in our urban canopy cover. We simply cannot allow these insurers to create such a detrimental impact by placing their profits before the sustainability of our cities and towns!

Thanks Alex. I think this will be a very effective way for us to network and share valuable and interesting tree info.
