Henry Porter opened a sanitarium in Rosedale to treat TB patients. Before antibiotics came along, the treatment for TB was “open air” cure. Called sanatoriums, beds were placed outside in the sunshine for patients to breathe in Colorado’s fresh air while they recuperated. Today this is the site of Porter Adventist Hospital in a surround of mature trees. Caring—whether it’s for patients or plantings—takes ongoing attention. Pruning properly requires the expertise of pros like Donovan Arborists to ensure it’s done right.
