Spring is in full swing, and as you are preparing your landscape for the upcoming hot summer months, it’s critical to pay special attention to your mature trees.
These trees are a valuable part of your landscape. In fact, “Streets with mature trees command higher home prices, temper the dog days of summer, and draw more people outdoors for fresh air, walks and chats with neighbors,” The Lawrence Times stated in an article about the importance of diversifying trees.
In addition, keeping your trees healthy is important because if a mature tree dies, it quickly transforms from a beautiful shade-bearing asset to a costly liability. This is especially true in Missouri, where violent and sometimes unexpected storms can quickly down dead or dying trees.
