Fall Planting Season

It’s fall planting season and many Missourians are looking at burnt brown trees, but the conservation department say don’t give up hope on them yet. Deputy Director of the Department of Conservation, Tom Draper, says this year’s drought has killed many trees, but some may come back. He recommends continuing to water them and suggests postponing plans to replant until next spring. Draper also says that if you do need to replace trees in your yard, there are some hardy native trees that do well with temperature extremes such as: Bald Cypress, Redbuds, Oak Trees, and a few varieties of Pine. Conservation arborists can help in that decision making process and will tell you what will do best in certain types of light, climate, and landscape.

I have just returned from spending four days in a guided silent retreat. The grace of silence is that it allows us to listen and reflect.
