Older Trees Make Excellent Garden Focal Points
We’re re-posting this 2009 “Problem Solved” profile of one of our DC projects as it appeared in SOUTHERN LIVING magazine.

There may be homeowners right now considering the removal of older storm-damaged trees. If I could post a big red siren right now I would, instead I’ll use caps — OLDER TREES CAN AND MUST BE SAVED!!! Always remember that an older tree should be cherished, and can successfully be incorporated into any landscape design plan. Please read on!
