SOUTHERN LIVING: Saving an Old Tree is GardenWise

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.  We’ve worked with SOUTHERN LIVING on four profiles of four of our projects to date, and this was my favorite garden to shoot.  It was a great project (with wonderful clients) that centered around an old tree that was to be saved at all costs.        

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!
