The Pasadena Beautiful Foundation explores the Benefits of TREES

The Pasadena Beautiful Foundation gives am online gift of a beautiful description of planting trees to all!

for a beautiful description of Planting TREES ...
... from the Planting Hole preparation
... to fertilizing (be sure to use ORGANIC fertilizer and soil enhancer ... let us know which brand you like)
... to Pruning (to keep the tree shapely if it is a landscape tree)
... to Staking (no - not eating steak!)
... to Watering
... and Tubing (no, not "tubing" down a river, tubing a new tree for protection and a long life!)

The Pasadena Beautiful Foundation site is a wealth of information!
