A Not So Merry Christmas.

That is odd…Christmas in September?  What is that all about?  It concerns the blight of the Northern Nevada pine tree.  It is known as “needle blight and it generally describes the sudden demise of pine needles (tomorrow’s Christmas trees).  It usually is spotted at the tip of the needle with a gray discoloration.

A comprehensive study of pine needle blight syndrome was conducted several years ago.  There were a variety of factors cited as the cause of pine needle blight on the Northern Nevada landscape.  There may be fungal pathogens or environmental stress, for example.

Be that as it may, we live in harmony with our trees.  Their health is vital to your property and the planet in general.  In the Reno area, you can always trust Greg Chavez, The Tree Professional to identify and treat the symptoms of arboreal disease.  Invite him out to your property by calling (775) 420-8694.

The Best Trees to Plant in Nevada.

As the seasons change, the time comes to consider what your property will look like NEXT summer and the seasons beyond.  Did you ever wonder what is considered our plant “hardiness” in the Reno area?  It is registered by a five whereas the southern part of the state with its searing summer climes and moderate winters is an eight.

A particularly great tree for our area is the Norway and Dwarf Alberta Spruce.  Don’t forget the Scarlet and Crimson Maples which will add blazingly beautiful fall colors to your garden.  For privacy on your property, consider planting a row of Thuja Emerald Green, American Holly or Drought Free Evergreens.
