Sandi Hillermann McDonald, president of Hillermann Nursery and Florist in Washington, Missouri
Dear Friends,

      Hope you are enjoying your summer! Most summer gardens are producing strong now. I have grown peppers, greens, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes and my first watermelons are forming! It is so refreshing to eat your own home grown food! If you did not get your veggie garden planted this spring … you still have time! Fall gardening will begin in the next several weeks. Keep an eye on this newsletter and we will keep you guided on what can be planted soon!
      There are many pretty things to see at the nursery through summer. Check out the pictures below.

Communities Losing 36 Million Trees Each Year
From America In Bloom
 
Scientists with the USDA Forest Service estimate that between 2009 and 2014, tree cover in the nation's urban/community areas declined by 0.7 percent, which translates to losing an estimated 36 million trees or approximately 175,000 acres of tree cover annually.
Pavement and other impervious cover increased at a rate of about 167,000 acres a year during the same period, according to research by USDA Forest Service scientists. Nationally, urban/community tree cover declined from 42.9 percent to 42.2 percent. 
 Urban foresters, planners and decision-makers need to understand trends in urban forests so they can develop and maintain sufficient levels of tree cover -- and the accompanying forest benefits -- for current and future generations of citizens.
