We didn't know how much we didn't know about trees and the world of arboriculture until our friends at SavATree, ISA Certified Arborists, joined the network. Their knowledge and passion for their profession is easily recognized by clients, acknowledged by the industry and now enjoyed monthly by our listeners.
In 2014 John Eisenhower of SavaTree joined the On-Air team at Rosie on the House with his Talking Trees program on the second Saturday each month during our Outdoor Living Hour, 8-9:00AM on KTAR 92.3fm.
Each program covers talking points from John's Tree Calendar plus tips on keeping your trees healthy and safe. John often invites expert tree guests and takes listeners calls, texts and emails.
If the monthly radio broadcast is not enough for you, browse our DIY Q&A database to find articles such as Pruning Made Easy, How close can I plant trees to my home and dealing with Sissoo Root Shoots.
For hands-on training, sign-up for classes held at the Desert Botanical Garden.
