How lovely aren’t your branches. O Tannenbaum is more like O Tannen-bomb. A dead tree is not good for selling.

It’s a Dry Heat

June 24th, 2016 · No Comments

Temperatures reached 118F in Phoenix this past week and have been above 110F the other days.  Humidity has been as low as 7%.  It’s a dry heat.  It saps the moisture out of plants (and people).  Take a look at what happened to a tree!
