Presented by Becky Wegnertreedrought.jpg

Drought definitely takes its toll on our trees, especially our older, more mature trees. No one knows this better than arborist, Becky Wegner, whose company, Mountain High Tree Service, takes care of many of the trees in our region. If you’ve driven down Nevada Avenue north of downtown Colorado Springs in the past few years, you’ve no doubt seen the trees in the median have suffered terribly as a result of not being irrigated during the drought that we experienced back in the early 2000’s. Come learn how to care for your trees during times of drought and watering restrictions. Also learn how to care for and water your trees during winter, an absolute MUST in our arid region.
