If you want a beautiful, exotic shade tree that’s a living fossil too, you might want to look at the gingko. Unique among existing trees, the gingko is a species apart. It has no living relatives, all others having disappeared over its 270-million-year history.
What’s the favorite holiday at Donovan Arborists? Arbor Day, of course! And in Colorado Arbor Day is celebrated on the third Friday of each April. This year that gives us a one-week jump on the national celebration, held on the last Friday of the month, the 27th.
The strong winds of early April left a lot of tree damage in their wake. Broken branches and fallen trees were common across the metro Denver area. Now that the worst of the damage has been cleared up it’s time to take a look at the aftereffects.
Walk around your property and look for leftover damage such as exposed wounds where branches were torn away and partial breaks that have weakened limbs. Check around root areas to see if there are signs of partial uprooting.
