Tree of the Month:  The Afghan Pine also known as a "Mondell Pine"

  • Why we like them and why they do so well here.
  • Size and shape, plus color and other characteristics.
  • Costs to expect....
  • John brought his "Plant Healthcare Specialist," Sara with him today.
  • Why the winter rains are great for our trees health in Arizona.
  • With winter rain, what should you do with your irrigation systems?

Caller:

  • John - He has a pine with a lot of "dead areas." Is it the blight" we were talking about?

Recommendation - It most likely is blight, but there has also been a mite issue too. The mite's seemed to have moved on, but John suggests fertilizing and impoving the waterig schedule. Trim out the dead wood and improve the soil conditions.

*Tips on trimming trees this time of year.

Segment 2
(running time 6:15)
Segment 3
(running time 14:15)
Segment 4
(running time 6:05)
  • Rosie has follow-up from last week and his trip to Duluth, Minnesota. A listener wrote in to talk about his "Coldest Holiday Experience."
  • Events happening over the weekend, including the Home, Health and Garden Show in Casa Grande.
  • Jennifer talks about a series on "rain harvesting" events put on by the Watershed Management Group.

Caller:

  • Scott - He had some mold on his base boards and out on his exterior walls. He thinks moisture is going in to the expansion and getting into his home. Is there a filler he can use to fill the joint to keep the moisture out. Plus, he's considering rain guters. Will that prevent the moisture getting in?

Recommendation - Water is pooling so he'll need to improve the drainage and gutters are a great start. The sidewalk might need to be worked on to get the water draining away from the home. He can use a product from Marvel Masonry called Thoroseal that we like. Rosie walks him through the steps.
