Three ways to get moving for SPRING!

1.  Reliable, up to date information
for weather and related conditions, like precipitation,
growing degree days, and upcoming storms.
2. Something for everyone
-resources for the city or park forester, architects,
landscapers and community organizers.

3.  Increase awareness
tracking how and when the plants in your 
garden, park, town, or city are changing with the seasons,
contributes to scientific data that helps us understand
how plants are responding to
this year's seasons and long-term changes in climate.

Fall Season was slow to come, now slowing down!

Mick and Jagger take a drive....       


Fall color was slow 

to come,

but just like the rains

it finally did,

and now leaves

have gone quickly.

Nothing like a drive

to take in the fall air,

--you can almost taste it!

We are covering polyhouses now 

to prepare for winter.

Container shrubs

available at

end of season prices!

April Showers bring life to Earth and Arbor

Prince Ea, recites important message 
to all of us on this 
International Earth and Arbor Month.  
Click here to see the necessary nature of trees...

"Trees are at the heart of all the 
important issues of our time: 
ecological, economic, social, and spiritual. 
They are the basis upon which 
human life and civilization stand, 
and they are absolutely crucial 
for our survival and prosperity."

We are undeniably creatures of the Earth, whose fate and future is utterly dependent on the well-being of the whole web into which we are woven.   Ann O'Hara Graff
