Why all the spruce tree decline?

At GreenStreet Tree Care, every other phone call to the office concerns spruce trees that are turning shades of purple and brown, dying from the bottom, or just plain crapping out. There is no short answer to this big problem. Michigan State University recently published a great article updating what we know (and don't know) about the recent surge in spruce decline. Check it out if you are interested.

  1. The department which is responsible should do something about that. I agree that there's no short answer to this big problem.

  2. I agree. They should focus on making these trees alive and green. Trees are very important to make the environment healthy and pollution free. They also add beauty to the entire landscape of the community.

  3. That is a great topic. I think that it would be better if you'll share more materials later. Some tips would be helpful.

  4. Well, I do like those trees. You know, their smell is something truly calming for me. I think that it would be great to have more trees like that around us.

  5. I am here to thank you for the contributed article. I love trees in spring bloom. Also I heard that bloom times may vary for the different species of cherry blossoms.

  7. I'm not interested in the question of fir trees since I do not have such trees in the garden and I do not plan on planting it in the future.
