In this last Down the Garden Path podcast for August, we're closing out our series on trees. Each week this month, we've been talking about deciduous trees and upright evergreens. We covered Japanese Maples, Native Trees and spent an entire show answering listener questions about trees! On this week's episode, we discuss native tree care with David Ordanis of Ordanis Tree Care.

Tune into this week's podcast as we discuss native tree care.

Some topics we cover in this week's podcast:

  • Why plant native trees?
  • What is their importance to the urban landscape?
  • The differences between native and non-native invasive trees.
  • Watering your trees properly: Young vs. older/established.
  • How should you feed your trees?
  • David's favourite native tree
  • Native trees that David recommends

Find David on Facebook here.

We hope you'll join us next month on the Down The Garden Path podcast as we discuss ways to extend your gardening season.
