Keeping you safe at home
The more time our customers spend at home the more they will notice how important keeping a healthy property is. Autumn Tree Lawn and Landscape keeps people and properties safe by cutting down dangerous limbs, removing dead trees, treating for diseases, and controlling damaging insects. Our commitment is to keep our customers safe along with our crew. Our crews are able to socially distance themselves given the nature of the work. However, we have added extra precautionary steps to keep our crews healthy, ie. sanitizing trucks and tools, not sharing tools and using masks.

The Emerald Ash Borer Threat

Through the years the Emerald Ash Borer has left a trail of dead ash in its wake, estimated at tens, if not hundreds, of millions of trees. Some communities took a proactive approach during these years and were able to save upwards of 90% of their pre-EAB ash trees, whereas other communities were caught off guard and now not a single ash can be found. Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Westminster. It is highly recommended to begin treating in the Metro area. 

For communities ravaged by EAB, the insect is sadly here to stay, and the scientific community recommends that EAB treatments not stop for the remaining ash trees. If treatments were to stop, remnant EAB in the area will exploit the suddenly defenseless tree and kill it.With new changes in the restrictions for moving wood it is highly recommended to treat for EAB across the front range. Laura Potorff, plant health section chief at the Colorado Department of Agriculture says “The mountains have acted as a natural barrier for the spread of the pest. But the quarantine was effectively lifted at the end of 2019, the Emerald Ash Borer could find a ride over the Rockies in firewood — the same way that officials think it found its way here in the first place.” The time is now to make decisions regarding your tree(s), not when tree decline becomes evident. Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Broomfield, Westminster, Burthod so please contact us for more information or an estimate.

Shrub of the month
Dwarf Flowering Almond is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub ( Prunus glandulosa 'Rosea Plena'). Dwarf Flowering Almond does not produce edible almonds. This shrub's branches are notoriously weak, so be careful when handling the plant (many a gardener has accidentally broken off a branch when transplanting). Provide your plant with artificial irrigation during dry periods until it has had time to become established. Once the plant has taken root, it tends to resist drought well.
The single most important aspect of plant care for this plant is pruning . Flowering Almond can become messy-looking if left to its own devices for too long. Suckering can also be a problem, so yearly pruning is advisable. 

Light: Dwarf Flowering Almond does best in full sun to partial shade. Try to give it five hours of sun each day.
Soil: The plant is tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, from sandy to clay. It should be of average fertility and, most important, it must drain well.
Water: Water regularly to keep the soil moist but not wet.
Temperature and Humidity: Dwarf Flowering Almond grows well in a variety of climates. It requires only a brief season of chilly weather to prompt flowering in the spring. It is also considered urban-tolerant.
Fertilizer: Fertilize this shrub with compost in spring. Otherwise, it does not need additional feeding if the soil is healthy.
