  • We discuss earthquake “Swarms” that happen by the hundreds.
  • What it takes to acutally feel an earthquake & how far down do they move below the surface.

  • Gina – She lost her mulberry tree and wants to know if it’s possible to plant a Jacaranda tree?

Recommendation – Yes! In fact, they are in full bloom right now and look great across the valley. They are a little susceptible to cold, but generally they do well in this area. Jay also walks through planting it correctly.

*The issues with planting a tree directly on top of a stump from an old tree.
