Landscape Trees

1
Many of us have trees in our landscape.  What you might not know is how valuable they are.  They provide us with a lot of benefits.  They are aesthetically pleasing, help purify the air we breathe, knock out noise, produce oxygen, and save energy in the summer by providing cooling shade and reduce wind in the winter.

If you love trees like the Master Gardeners do, then this page will help you in care for trees you have or will buy in the future.
