05/12/2021

A large number of oak trees are still struggling to leaf out as a result of Winter Storm Uri, and many Texans are left wondering why. However, the answer isn’t particularly straightforward. Neil Sperry and his followers have reinforced the seeming randomness and scope of the damage, making it clear that it’s not species specific or tied to any particular region. But here is what we DO know:
🌳 If no leaves have emerged by July, it’s most likely dead. However, many trees that were bare have just started leafing out in the past few weeks.
🌳 If you’re in a rush to replace your dead or dying trees, remember that NOVEMBER is actually the best time to plant trees in Texas. That’s why #TexasArborDay is the first Friday of every November
🌳 If you think your tree is dead and might fall over – don’t worry. Dead trees can stand firm for several months before they are at risk of toppling over
🌳 Trees that have partial canopy coverage might continue to look patchy or unwell throughout the rest of this year – but if they survive the summer, they should leaf out normally next spring
🌳 While fertilizer might seem like a good option for boosting health on struggling trees, it can also trigger trees to focus on growth - diverting energy away from defense
Oak trees are a long term investment, and nobody likes to see them struggling. But the worst thing you could do right now is rush a decision and cut them down when they might have recovered otherwise. Be patient, be watchful, and wait. Trees are surprisingly resilient, and they might just surprise you.

Litter Fact from the Don't mess with Texas Program: trash falling out of cars or trucks accounts for half of all roadside litter in Texas. If it’s in the bed of your truck, it will likely fly out on the road. Either throw your trash away or keep it with you until you get home.

Did you know this food waste fact? About 130 billion pounds of food is wasted in America annually. This is due to processing problems, overproduction of food, and unstable markets before food gets to the grocery store. Overbuying food, poor planning, and confusion over labels are reasons why food waste occurs at home and contribute to this number as well.

Thanks Mayor Barry Gordon 4 all Ur Support!!! Much love & appreciation my brother in Christ!!!!
A conspiracy to destroy not only all the rose bushes in our City of Duncanville Parks and landscape responsibilities. But ! the same for the long row of Red - Tip Photina,s that line the West siide of Main St. Duncanville, Tx giving a long line of single file shrubs leading to the FALLEN Hometown Warrior and beyond. So! the parks dept says " too expensive too many man hours to rake the deases leaves. One gal of Eagle fungicide could do all the Shrubs and Roses in our fair City cost $175. Our city spends that much on getting shoe marks off the Field House wood floor.Seniors don't ask for muchlower taxes and something pretty to look at . .
