The next couple of months I am booked to do several programs on trees. Some of the best naturalist in the state of Ohio and beyond have formed my opinion on trees. That opinion has been further refined by numerous books and tree-tourism.
Whether the program is focused on trees for birds, or legacy trees, or trees for your yard, the admiration for trees should be obvious. Look to the side-bar on your right for more information about upcoming programs.

If you, too, are interested in trees and would like to plant more habitat in your yard or local plot, please go to Riverside Nursery's excellent web-app and see which native trees grow in your Ohio county. You will also want to factor in if your tree-site is wet or dry. It is all right there, based on The Woody Plants of Ohio book by Dr. E. Lucy Braun.

This may seem like an odd topic for this time of year. One might not think a cemetery would be in a Weedpicker's wheelhouse. However, historical cemeteries were often 1 part arboretum, 1 part picnic area and parade ground. These large open spaces set aside within metropolitan areas have often become oasis for wildlife, botany and migratory birds.
Unfortunately it just receive very rough treatment at the hands of vandals. There is no "Allstate" fix for this type of problem. To set things right will take an enormous amount of time and money, and I hope you will consider going here to help out. Even ten dollars would be a start in the right direction.
