Oak Wilt (Ceratocystis fagecearum) Why we care: Oak wilt kills healthy red oaks. White oaks can also be affected but are more resistant and less vulnerable to mortality from the disease. One a red oak becomes infected with the oak wilt fungus, the tree will die and there is no treatment to save the infected tree. Once an oak wilt infection is confirmed, however, treatments are available to save surrounding oaks and stop the speak of disease. What is at risk? All red oaks are susceptible to oak wilt. Red oaks are common urban and suburban landscape trees. The loss of these trees can have significant negative impact. In the forest, red oaks are also an important producer of acorns for wildlife habitat. Using 2011 Forest Inventory and Analysis data along with the current average stump age price for red oak saw logs, it is estimated that the value of red oak timber in Michigan is approximately 1.6 billion dollars. The Threat: Oak wilt moves slowly on its own through root systems and travels short distances overland when new spores are moved by beetles from an infected tree to a freshly pruned or injured tree. Oak wilt can be moved long distances when people move infected firewood from one location to another. Look for red oaks that suddenly drop their leaves in the summer. The disease spreads, killing nearby oaks from on year to the next. Currently, oak wilt is generally distributed throughout the Midwest and Texas. What could happen to Michigan?: One established, if not treated, oak wilt will continue to spread, killing all red oaks in a neighborhood or a forest.
What can you do? DO NOT prune oak trees during growing season. If you need to prune oaks, DO NOT prune them between April 15 and July 15. DO NOT move firewood; oak wilt is speak by the movement of infected wood.

Fall Leaves

Ever wonder... Why do leaves change colors? Here's why: The chlorophyll breaks down, the green color disappears, and the yellow to orange colors become visible and give the leaves part of their fall splendor. At the same time other chemical changes may occur, which form additional colors through the development of red anthocyanin pigments

Snow Contracts are due November 1st; if you need an estimate please let us know! Contact us via phone at 616-893-5765 or via email at

COLOR for your Fall Landscape.... Mums, Hydrangeas, Japanese Maples, Snapdragons

It's time to THINK FALL and start PREPARING...

It's time to THINK FALL and start PREPARING... Prepare your garden for cold weather to come by winterizing plants. Many of your prized garden stars survive winter without extra care on your part, but taking time to winterize paves the way for a healthy, productive garden next spring. For tender plants and new additions to the garden, winterizing is vital for cold weather survival. Start the winterizing process by mulching around landscape plants. Mulch helps insulate soil and prevent frost heave, a condition that occurs when soil repeatedly freezes and thaws—and pushes plants out of soil. When frost heave occurs, plant crowns and roots are exposed to freezing air and drying winds. When you add fall mulch, aim for a layer that’s 3 to 5 inches deep (deeper in colder regions). It’s especially important to mulch shallow-rooted perennials that are prone to frost heave, like blanket flower (Gaillardia), coral bells (Heuchera), pincushion flower (Scabiosa) and shasta daisy (Leucanthemum). Do not mulch bearded iris. Cut down perennials and pull annuals. This aspect of winterizing plants helps eliminate hiding places for pests and diseases. Leave any plants that add winter interest with seedheads or stems, but clean up as much as possible. Winterizing plants like roses or newly-planted perennials requires protecting plant crowns with a deeper layer of mulch or soil after the ground freezes. You may want to create a framework around plants using chicken wire, hardware cloth or tomato cages that you stuff with leaves or straw to protect plant crowns. Always wait for soil to freeze before doing this, or you risk creating a hibernation haven for rodents. In cold weather, evergreen roots freeze in soil and stop taking up water. Winterizing evergreen trees and shrubs involves protecting them from drying winter winds. To do this, erect a burlap screen on the windy sides of plants (usually the west and north). Drive stakes into soil before it freezes, and come back when temperatures are steadily in the 20s to staple or zip-tie burlap to stakes. For tender shrubs and perennials, protecting roots can help plants survive. Build a small screen around plants, heap soil over roots and stuff the screened-in area with leaves or straw.

Drought Article by MLive

DROUGHT ARTICLE BY MLIVE: The U.S. Drought Monitor released July 7, 2016 has most of Lower Michigan abnormally dry and the light brown areas now designated as moderate drought. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor has just placed part of Lower Michigan in moderate drought conditions. The data released today, July 7, shows abnormally dry areas in bright yellow and moderate drought areas in tan. Moderate drought is one step drier than abnormally dry. Moderate drought now stretches from the Bay, Midland, Saginaw and Thumb areas south to the Lansing area. The Detroit area is also now ranked as being in moderate drought. There is also an area around Muskegon, Ludington and Manistee in moderate drought conditions. Most of the rest of Lower Michigan is now characterized as abnormally dry. The moderate drought is called a short-term drought right now, since it has been going for less than six months. This means it is a drought to agriculture, but not yet a drought with regards to water table lowering and water usage. Dry areas really expanded in past week The U.S. Drought Monitor ranks areas as abnormally dry, moderate drought, severe drought, extreme drought and exceptional drought. Here are the latest percent of Michigan areas in each category, and the change from several previous time periods. Last week no area of Michigan was ranked in moderate drought. This week 16 percent of Michigan is in moderate drought. The abnormally dry area really expanded, going from 31 percent last week to 68 percent now. Fortunately there should be some help to the dryness over the next three days. Fairly widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected late Thursday through early afternoon Saturday. Moisture in the air is substantial, so storms could drop a lot of rain fast. We certainly could use at least an inch over all of Michigan. I don't think every location will get an inch of rain in the next three days, but some areas will get more than one inch.
