Some trees are nicer than others. There are trees that evoke certain childhood memories, like Christmas trees, and trees that just creep us all out: think a willow tree in the dark. Those tendrils are scary. For those of us in San Diego there’s been a bit of an upset over eucalyptus trees. Get Out Of My Yard “Deport the eucalyptus back to Australia!” That’s Johnny Sevier, a certified arborist, on the tree he loves to hate but that many…

Not All Fungi Are Fun Guys

Trees can stand up to a lot of things. They can recover from being burned. Even if you shoot a tree, it will survive. You can also cut off parts of a tree and it will still keep growing.

It’s taken a lot of scientific research, trial, and error to find what works with our bodies to make sure we don’t fall victim to these diseases.
