The weather so far this month has actually been quite pleasant and mild, with some hot and humid days and some cool, breezy ones thrown in for good measure. Although the average rain amounts across the region have been moderate with a little less than an inch of accumulated precipitation, some areas experienced unsettled weather including some strong thunderstorms. Lawns are thriving and green, with mowing being a regular necessity. The continuing gradually warming temperatures have allowed for extended bloom periods and are now forcing some stubborn woody and herbaceous plants into bloom. Of course, some less than desirable plants are also thriving in warming pre-summer conditions.
Eradication may be achieved through treatment or removal depending on the point in the plant’s life cycle and the severity of the problem. Your arborist can assist you with determining which method will be appropriate and effective for removal and control of weeds found on your property.
