Is my tree dead?

Is my tree dead?

We were brainstorming ideas for blog posts last year based on common customer questions. While many questions can be answered broadly in a blog post like this, others are highly specific to a place and time. Today's question, "Is my tree dead?" falls at the intersection of the two types of questions.

February: Groundcover Junipers

February: Groundcover Junipers

Junipers come in a range of shapes, sizes, and colors. The one thing that unites them all is year-round color and rugged winter hardiness. Today we're focusing on low-growing, spreading junipers that we'll lump together as a group and refer to as groundcover junipers.
