We're taking questions about trees out in your yard with John Eisenhower of Integrity Tree Service!

Tree of the Week:
  Vitex Agnus-Cactus, commonly known as a Chaste Tree or Monk's Pepper Tree.  Great replacement tree that's great for our heat, produces flowers and a nice size for confined ares.

(Fun Fact: It's named after "monk's" to control libido and is a great herbal remedy for many other uses)

-We discuss planting several trees in the same hole together in some instances.  Placement is key when planting. Consider proximity to the home (foundation)

Callers:

  • Ned - He's having an issue with a ficus tree. There are small white flies all over a 15 foot tall ficus tree. He's heard rumors about them spreading and now the leaves are dropping all over. What should he do?

Recommendation -  This is a definite concern this year and is a pretty serious concern in the valley.  He needs a specialist to treat for them.  He can call  Scottsdale Weed Control & Fertilization.
