Information and guidelines about how to save trees in all sorts of situations.

If you feel the need to be involved with helping the forests and impacting the world, consider attending or hosting an event to bring attention to the importance of our forests. The United Nations recognizes March 21 as International Day of Forests!

Think about it…where would we be without our forests?

Really Seeing Trees

Banyan Tree at Marie Selby Botanical Garden in Sarasota, FL

As a #TreeProtector, you really #SeeTrees as they are.  That means not only seeing the magnificence and beauty of this Banyan tree, but also seeing that it has some dead branches.

Don’t just immediately think “oh, we have to cut them off.”  That is coming from the human point of view or coming from some previous lesson about trees.

Instead think: “Oh, this tree is not growing right.  It might be having trouble in its inner circulation of fluids, or with making food, or with being able to grow enough leaves.”

And think too, “I can do practical and bio-energy things to help it!”

•WATER YOUR TREES DURING DROUGHT OR EXTREME HEAT!! They may have outgrown their area. Water deep and long.
•Research! Plant the right tree in the right place.
•Use CARE when transplanting not to damage roots. Plant AT soil level, do not pile extra soil on top of root ball. Water often.
•Do NOT add soil, new plantings, or stone planters around an existing tree; it smothers roots.
•Use a sprinkling of mulch, don’t pile it up at the base.
• For construction, install plastic fencing at the drip-line so that they don’t dig, pile materials, or park under under trees.
• After construction, do NOT
regrade the soil over the roots. Short walls can hold back soil.
• Don’t install bricks, stone, or walkways under trees.
•Avoid “topping” trees & road salt.
•REMOVE BANDS OR TIES–they strangle fluid flows under bark.
•Protect young trees but don’t tie anything to them.
•LEAVE leaves; they have natural fertilizer and beneficials. Shred them for winter. Avoid blowers.
•Learn proper pruning techniques or hire a sensitive professional who knows how to ASK THE TREE where best to prune.

#Help4Trees in Hurricane Areas of Florida

Dr. Jim Conroy and Ms. Basia Alexander

We are working in Florida a few months after Hurricanes Irma and Maria of 2017.  So many trees were damaged, but more than that, the trees still standing are not healthy.  The high winds and rains severely stressed the trees in the hurricane-hit areas.

But, these trees have a chance to survive!

You can be a #TreeProtector by helping with practical efforts such as replacing soil and sand around exposed roots before they dry out.

You can also use the bio-energy non-linear methods of #TreeWhispering to help stressed trees.  Find out about Healing Whispers at www.TreeWhispering.com

Consider Something Different to Help Ash Trees

Is killing the answer?

With the Ash Trees and the Emerald Ash Borer it hasn’t worked yet.

This insect was a hitch-hiker from Asia, probably in some lumber.  It came into the Great Lakes and began spreading through Michigan to the east.  In just about 15 years, it’s found it’s way into New England states, and even to Colorado.  How could a little, tiny insect get that far?  In firewood.  People have moved firewood and spread the Emerald Ash Borer from town to town.

It is being blamed for the death of millions of Ash trees.  But what most people don’t know is that Read more…

Protection around Construction Works!

Last year, Delaware Valley University (Dr. Jim Conroy’s undergraduate alma mater) was doing  construction on a new building around old, beautiful trees.

Please see last year’s post: What to do during Construction

This year, after the building was completed, the trees are flourishing.  Adaquate protection from both cutting of roots and compaction of roots really pays off!
