Host Richard Hentschel discuses recent events related to recent rains. Damage to tree canopies and broken branches in shrubs. Proper pruning of those damaged branches will aid in proper recovery. Making proper cuts to minimize the open cut area. Removing the broken branches on smaller ornamental trees should be done now and making additional cuts at a later time or early next spring. With the recent rains, comes weed seed germination in our landscape beds.
