  A weekly blog from Tom Dayton....
all blogs

October 21, 2016
After a taste of Indian summer last week, the cooler rainy weather has returned that is probably more typical for October. The leaf show is at its peak affect, albeit it does seem later than usual. Once clue of the later than usual turning of the leaves this fall is the Autumn Blaze Maple planted near the equipment barn in 1998. Every year, the tree has begun to display its brilliant red fall color late September with the finale of a bare tree around October 20th. This hybrid tree (Silver Maple x Red Maple) this year on October 21st is just past its prime in coloration. Other Maples such as the Sugar Maple and Red Maple at the nursery are only now in full color as they typically turn color later then the Autumn Blaze cultivar.

  Believe it or not, fall is a great time to plant trees.  The soil is still warm, temperatures are more pleasant and rainfall is more consistent.  Carl, one of our Certified Nursery Technicians, shows us how to properly plant a balled and burlapped tree.

This video is the first video in what we hope to become a full video library for our customer's use.  Let us know how we did and what topics you would like to see covered in future videos.
