Urban Landscape Ideas
A tree-lined yard is not a reality in most urban settings, but the landscape contractor can approximate the popular look by using small trees. The type of tree to use depends on the region. Crab trees and Japanese Lilac trees grow well in the East. Olive trees do well in the dry climates of the Southwest. Place one small tree on each side of yard or place one close to one corner of the house.

Mild Winter Slows Sales of Snow Removal Gear

Lack of seasonal demand has reduced sales of smaller, single stage snow blowers in the Northeast, where snowfall has stayed well below typical winter levels.

Managing Woody Plants in Winter

Trees that are bent over by snow have a chance at recovery, but it largely depends on the percent of bend. A tree with less than 20 degrees bend will recover, and a tree with less than 60 degrees bend has a good chance, but a tree with more than 60 degrees bend has a low chance of recovery.
