Bowling class openPublished 11:58am Saturday, July 7, 2012
Trees are stressed by drought combined with the freeze this past spring when the trees were starting to bud and the lack of ground cover during this past winter drove the frost deep in to the roots causing some die back. Maples seem to be the hardest hit. Take a look at the trees in your yard and boulevard and remember to give them a slow drink during these dry conditions.
