Harbor Your Own Arbor

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 at 12:00:00 am

Nearly everyone enjoys plopping down under a shady tree for some light reading. Or perhaps you prefer to picnic under the leafy branches of a big tree. Maybe you're an avid tree climber. What's the common theme here? Trees. We all learned in school that they're crucial to us being able to breathe (all that photosynthesis mumbo jumbo), but they're good for about a thousand other reasons, too. So why not plant some? Well, maybe you're hesitant because you don't know what kinds of trees are best for planting, growing and enjoying in Oklahoma City. Have no fear. The tree experts are here.

When you're deciding amongst deciduous, evergreen or some type of ornamental, you need all the help you can get your hands on. Get some definitive direction for planting trees and keeping woodsy pests and diseases at bay with "Putting Down Roots," the City's guide to tree planting, specifically designed for successful Johnny-Appleseeding in OKC's particular climatological conditions. With this tome on tree planting and care, you'll be bagging up the bagworms, doing away with Dutch elm disease, resisting the cedar apple rust and growing a tree that's strong, wise and sensitive to the environment, much like famed aficionado of all things arboreal John Denver. So go ahead and plant that tree today!
