TREES:

TREES ARE BEING CUT DOWN AT AN ALARMING RATE.

CITRUS CANKER IS HERE AND NOT GOING AWAY ANY TIME SOON. HAVE YOU BEEN A VICTIM ?  THE STATE HAS BEEN GOING THRU MIRAMAR . MOST  AFFECTED TREES HAVE BEEN REMOVED . HOWEVER THE DISEASE IS STILL HERE . THE STATE HAS SAID IT WILL BE APPROX. 2 YEARS UNTIL THE AREA WILL BE CONSIDERED TO BE FREE FROM THE DISEASE. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU ?

DO NOT PURCHASE CITRUS TREES . DO NOT MOVE CITRUS TREES . DO NOT BRING CITRUS  FRUIT FROM OTHER AREAS IN OR OUT OF MIRAMAR . HELP TO RID THE AREA OF DISEASE . IT WILL HELP THE TREES  THAT ARE STILL RESIDING IN THE AREA. AND THERE ARE NOT MANY LEFT. 

I WILL PUT AN ANNOUNCEMENT AS SOON AS I HEAR THAT OUR AREA IS FREE FROM CITRUS CANKER. THEN YOU CAN PLANT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

HURRICANE SEASON :

NOW IS THE TIME TO TRIM AND REMOVE OLD DEAD BRANCHES. SOME PEOPLE WAIT UNTIL A HURRICANE TO TRIM A TREE, AND THAT IS WRONG. A GOOD IDEA WOULD BE TO GET OUT NOW WHILE THE WEATHER IS STILL NICE. LOOK FOR TREES TOO CLOSE TO YOUR HOUSE. LIMBS THAT ARE HANGING ON YOUR ROOF. GETTING RID OF THIS NOW WILL PROMOTE GROWTH , THUS A HEALTHIER TREE. YOU WILL THANK ME WHEN THE HEAT OF SUMMER IS UPON US . HEAT STROKE CAN BE DEADLY. SO CAN TRIMMING TREES AROUND POWER LINES. LOOK BEFORE YOU CUT.

I WANT EVERYONE TO STAY SAFE.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS TO GO BY WHEN PLANTING TREES.

HINTS:

1. CHOOSE A SUNNY LOCATION AWAY FROM YOUR HOUSE .

2. CHOOSE A LOCATION AWAY FROM POWER AND PHONE LINES .

3. LARGE TREES NEED A LOT OF ROOM . GIVE IT TO THEM .

4. CHECK IF THE TREE DROPS LEAVES , FLOWERS , OR ANYTHING WHICH COULD STAIN A DRIVEWAY , AUTOMOBILE OR ROOF .

5. CHOOSE A VARIETY GROWN IN ZONE 10. FOR SO. FLORIDA .

6. WATER DAILY FOR THE FIRST WEEK AND CHECK DAILY.

7. CHECK IF THE TREE NEEDS SPRAYS OR SPECIAL NEEDS .

8. PRUNE TO PROMOTE GROWTH AND STRENGTH . NO TREE ABUSE PLEASE.

9.  THE WEED WHACKER IS THE NUMBER ONE KILLER OF SMALL TREES .

10. FRUIT , NUT , FLOWER , SPICE , TEXTILE , SHADE , MAKE YOUR CHOICE .

 

TREES ARE VERY SPECIAL. SOME ARE ON THE ENDANGERED LIST. SO BE KIND TO TREES .THEY ARE HOMES TO OTHER LIVING BEINGS. THEY ARE IN OUR HOMES DISGUISED AS FURNITURE. AIR IS FREE AS LONG AS TREES DON'T START CHARGING US FOR OXYGEN.
