Jim Paxon from the Arizona Game & Fish Department joins us to talk about what they’re up to.
Certified Arborist John Eisenhower with Integrity Tree Service takes your questions on trees!
Tree of the Month: He also loves the Texas Olive tree. It’s great as a “Patio Tree” You can trim it into a bush or a tree and has a very beautiful bloom.
Should you be pruning anything right now? John explains what plants can be cut back and how to go about it.
Recommendation – He can use “tree paint” not the black “pruning paint.” If he needs more protection, he can use a shade cloth to wrap the plants while the tree recovers. Shade cloth is John’s favorite method of protecting trees from sun.
We’re talking about using the correct caulking for different applications and painting with Dale Wade of PPG Architectural Coatings.
Recommendation – Dale would use a urethane elastomeric caulk with sand in it. That way the texture will match the existing surface grade. He should “V Out” the joint and fill in the crack and feather out the surface to help match too. (Rosie shares a few more tips)
