Tips to avoid 'crape murder'

in
Rogers, Sara.jpg

I’ve received a dozen or more phone calls during the past month or so regarding pruning various landscape plants. The majority of the callers have either inquired into the proper timing for pruning shade trees or crape myrtles. Today I want to discuss the latter because of a disturbing trend in the landscape industry, especially throughout the South, known as “crape murder.” And, unfortunately, it is occurring earlier and earlier each year. “Crape murder” refers to the practice of topping crape myrtles which gives them a crew-cut appearance.

If asked to name their best friend, most people would have a name ready — and it wouldn’t be Google (though Siri — the iPhone’s digital assistant program — might have a shot at some people’s top five list).

After these last cold fronts, I would be safe to claim that the dormant season for most woody landscape plants has arrived. Deciduous trees and shrubs are leafless, making the landscape looking bare except for where the foliage of evergreen plants keep their color. It is a good time to observe the winter characteristics of landscape plants, such as bark textures and colors, growth form, winter fruit and interesting bud formation. There are many trees and shrubs which exhibit outstanding winter beauty and are often chosen for the landscape because of these features.

Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

Christmas has come and gone, but the giving spirit of people all over our community continues to lift the hearts and lives of families served by Domestic Abuse Resistance Team. This was my first year to be involved with the Christmas Angel Project from behind the scenes. In the past, I just went to DART’s office or one of the tree locations and picked up a few angels. This year, I was able to witness firsthand what a significant project this is, and how much it does to provide Christmas for our families.
