Speak 
For 
The Trees

An example of a sickly hemlock suffering from woolly adelgid damage. When this insect first became a problem 30 years ago the protocol was to feed the tree, and the resulting lush growth was just what the adelgids needed to thrive, making the infestation even worse.

This European hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is surrounded by pavement and the foliage dripline pushes any rain away from the small root zone. Trees sited like this one need periodic irrigation as well as feeding.

Don’t neglect to feed and water
