Our tenth episode of The Backyard Naturalists featured tree expert, Ralph Ramsaur and there was so much to talk about, we felt we should continue the conversation in a second installment.
You’ll remember, Ralph is an ISA Board Certified Master Arborist and currently serves as the Town of Matthews, NC Landscape Manager and Town Arborist. He’s also the staff liaison on the Town’s Appearance and Tree Advisory Committee and in his free time, maintains the Town’s “Tree City USA” program, which has been in place for over 21 years.
When it comes to planting trees, there are endless misconceptions, unintended consequences and quite honestly, things that homeowners do wrong while planting a tree. During their conversation with Ralph, Debbie and Laurie learn the correct way to plant trees and incorporate them into a natural wildlife habitat. They also review some of the basic benefits to having trees as a part of a home’s landscape like providing shade in the summer and preventing water runoff.
