Don't always trust a plant list. Nurseries, Landscapers and Arborists always have a list of plants that tolerate certain conditions. For example: we have experienced a drought this past year and as a result property owners are looking for drought tolerant trees. The decision should not be to just choose a number of drought tolerant trees or shrubs to plant in the landscape, but rather we must ensure we make the landscape able to tolerate droughty conditions. This may mean using organic mulch (not rock) in the landscape and that we provide enough water to allow the plants to grow and establish. No "drought tolerant" tree can with stand a landscape without water. A newly planted "drought tolerant" plant will need supplemental water for a few years until the root system has established and can seek out soil moisture further away.

Decay, disease, storm damage and age all harm the trees we cherish. Luckily, there are steps we can take to prolong their lives like pruning, cabling and bracing and training. Jobs like these — and other dangerous jobs like removals and pruning—are best left to the experienced arborists at Parkland Tree Care. We have the necessary tools, equipment and knowledge to safely care for your trees and shrubs.
