Winter Damage of Trees

Posted in Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:49 PM by Administrator

Many people have found their trees have significant bark damage as areas of the bark high up on trees disappeared during the winter.  Unfortunately racoons have done significant damage to many mature trees as they looked for new sources of food.  This picture shows the damage (bark eaten) to a signifcant part of a Maple tree.Winter Damage to a Maple Tree caused by Racoons   This tree will die over the next several years as these wounds will not heal themselves.

Cocoa Bean Shell Mulch

We installed cocoa bean shell mulch and it looks great.  The shells are very light and crunchy (they are dried cocoa shells, after all) and smell like chocolate.  It is a unique look that seems to work very nicely.  Might be worth considering in pots and planters near a deck/patio, as well.Cocoa Bean Shell Mulch
