Pittsburgh’s Organic Apple Trees
Though professional tree services companies in Pittsburgh work hard to protect the area’s trees with pesticides, there’s always an alternative method. In the case of the local fruit trees – namely apples – tree spraying with organic solutions keeps your trees just as healthy. Several organic pesticides do just as well – if not better – to prevent pesky critters from invading local trees. An organic orchardists bag of tricks includes stinging nettles, comfrey and neem oil. Not sure what these are, then you may be threatening the growth of your prized fruit trees, apple or not.Organic Apple Tree, Pittsburgh, PAOne of Pittsburgh’s most notorious insects is the borer; eating its way through apple trees and other fruit trees throughout the state. However, some local growers are fighting back with organic pesticides to preserve their trees without harmful side effects. Pittsburgh tree service companies that still use chemical-based pesticides may be adopting some of these eco-friendly methods as a way to preserve the health of the tree as well as the surrounding soil.Neem Oil: This solution, containing azadirachtin and terpenoid, is sprayed at the base of the tree to interrupt the lifecycle of the round-headed apple-tree borers. In essence, it prevents the larvae from molting, which leads to eminent death.Comfrey: A natural herb that is rich in calcium, comfrey planted at the base of fruit trees attracts minerals from the soil surrounding the root ball. Its fragrant flowers are both pleasant and appealing to local bees that pollinate the trees.Stinging Nettles: Derived from a leafy green plant covered in tiny thorns, stinging nettles are another form of natural pesticide. This concoction is created by chopping up the leaves and diluting them with water and then spreading it around the base of a tree.In the same way that herbs enrich the human immune system, they do much the same for trees. Even when insects do break through the bark and try to nestle into the sap wood, a tree with a health immune system can recover from the havoc. Trees that are fortified with organic sprays and solutions are much more willing to survive Pittsburgh’s harsh climates. Many times, improper tree care and oversaturation of harmful chemicals can lead to untimely tree removal in Pittsburgh.While these methods work for apple trees, as used by several orchardists in Pittsburgh, they can also be used on other fruit trees native to the area. However, a bit of research as to the proper amount to distribute would be as equally noteworthy as the effort itself to preserve your trees. With less amounts of harsh chemicals entering the top soil and underground aquifers, the use of natural pesticides decreases the risk of chemical exposure to other plants and trees in the surrounding area – not to mention the water table!Live in Pittsburgh and need help with your trees?

Alabama Trees Make Great Building Material
There are two phenomena that are occurring in the home improvement industry these days that make great use of the trees around Alabama. From the eco-smart platform of recycled materials to locally conscious textiles, people are looking for ways to cut back on fuel consumption and new material construction. Alabama contractors have contacted Mobile, AL tree companies to request hardwood from local lumber yards to keep their materials locally grown. Find out which trees produce top quality building materials for your next home improvement project.PinePine trees grow in abundance just about anywhere in the south, which is why they are so popular and widely used. The best way to get your hands on these trees is when Alabama land clearing projects occur in your city. Tons of trees are felled by Mobile, AL tree removal companies and often have no further use. Salvaging these trees for building materials is a creative way to extend the life of this wealth of trees. Check out some of these beautiful pine fences.OakOak wood furnitureBoth red oak and white oak trees are native to the Alabama area, which are both great for furniture making. Like pine, they are versatile and pliable to accommodate any time of furniture style. Oak trees are strong and sturdy as well, making them ideal for tables, dressers, bed frames, and cabinetry. Oak wood is also durable and sustainable because of its dense form. Also like pine, it’s an affordable wood.Maple The allure of maple wood comes from the way the tree grows naturally. This Alabama tree has a wood grain with a unique pattern, which is only revealed once the tree has been cut down. Great for desks and decorative tables where the wood grain can be fully appreciated, maple wood is also a very enduring hardwood for construction.WalnutThough often just a veneer, walnut makes a great building material for any kind of furniture. Popular because of its range in shades of brown – from rich dark brown to a softer hue – the black walnut tree is local to the Alabama area, extending into Biloxi and Gulfport as well. Mobile tree services have also been supplying this hardwood to local mills for green construction.HickoryThe shagbark hickory tree is among a couple of native hickory varieties in Alabama that are used as building materials – mostly hardwood flooring and household woodworking. Heavy and abrasive and is prone to splitting, hickory doesn’t make it an all-around wood. However, it does last a lot longer than other hardwoods because of this fact. Outlasting all other building materials, hickory tree removal in Mobile is carefully guarded.Because of the thriving ecosystem in the Alabama, Mobile tree service companies are doing their part to preserve the value of native trees of the south. With resources plentiful, these hardwoods are available as green building materials for contractors and local residents interested in performing their own home improvement ventures. Eco-conscious consumption, such as local lumber, contributes directly to the health and welfare of the native trees of Alabama. The effort to produce and manufacture locally grown materials is so prevalent for this reason.

3 Trees to Keep Your Neighbor Out of Your Life
Have you ever wished that you had some way to shut your neighbors out of your life in a natural and humane way? Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘Man. I wish there was some sort of giant green thing in between that guy and me’? Well you’re in luck! Trees provide their owners with a number of advantages such as fresh air, shade, and higher property values. However, they are also a great source of privacy for those of you who don’t like prying neighbors peeking in on what you’re doing. In fact, some trees are so effective at shielding their owners from others that they are specifically sold as ‘privacy trees.’ Here are some examples that may be just what you’re looking for.The Thuja Green Giant is well known for its interesting dimensions. This tree grows upward very quickly, but experiences very little outward growth which means that owners who want to remove that highway from their line of sight, don’t have to take up or tear up half of their yard to do it. The Thuja Green Giant is best fit for giving privacy in places like Kansas due to the warm dry climate.The ‘Wichita Blue’ Juniper is considered a premium privacy tree partially because of its hardiness. With so many plants in your yard, you’ll want a species that doesn’t require any work and that’s what you’ll get with the ‘Wichita Blue’. The plant’s main draw though, is its interesting blue color. The branches stay a beautiful blue all year round, making the border of your yard very nice to look at. As a bonus, you can tell your neighbor that you put them there because you like the color, not because his family drives you crazy. The ‘Wichita Blue’ grows well from coast to coast.The American Holly is a great privacy tree that can be trimmed into hedges between two yards. Nothing says ‘I love you neighbor’ like a giant green and red wall covered in spikes and toxic berries. This is a great looking plant to have around in the holiday season especially if you live up north where it snows. Not too far north because the American Holly does need some sunlight, but somewhere like Cincinnati would be a great place for a festive wall of privacy.Those are only a few of the trees that are sold for privacy. Do you have any favorites that I should know about? Let me know in the comments!

Why Trees Are Better Than You at Getting Revenge
A Fig Tree Waiting for RevengeTrees and plants are often regarded by the average person as static objects for human use. They are objects that create shade, provide building materials, and make surroundings nicer to look at. Whether you like it or not, that’s how you perceive them. You jerk. Well, you may want to call someone else to take care of those trees when you hear how good trees are at exacting revenge.First on the list, straight from the plot of M. Night Shymalan’s The Happening, are the plants that have friends in high places. Tobacco, corn, and cotton plants, when being preyed upon by caterpillars, can emit a chemical signal that attracts predatory wasps. Not only can the plants jump up a rung on the food chain and summon their friendly neighborhood predator, they can sense what kind of caterpillar is nibbling on them and call exactly the wasp that likes laying parasitic larvae in their stomach. That little bit of nibbling gets you revenge in the form of being eaten, slowly and painfully, from the inside out. That’s like bringing a gun to a tickle fight.How are you with figs? Fig fruit are meant to be eaten so that the plant can spread its seeds. However, the trees are not intended to be cut down and they don’t like it very much. Plants like fig trees are the reason tree services make money. When fig trees are cut into deep enough, they emit tree sap. Tree sap is, in many ways, equivalent to blood in humans. It is released upon injury and it clots at the wound to prevent invasive organisms from entering. However, the blood of a fig tree is mixed with a kind of latex and the latex contains licin. Licin is a type of defensive enzyme that can cause phytophotodermatitis, which is an extreme rash that is often confused with chemical burns. This is no ordinary rash. The symptoms include hypersensitivity to ultraviolet light, permanent alteration to skin pigmentation and, in some cases, boils the size of teacups. Yeah. They lace their blood with that stuff. How’s that for revenge?There are many other types of plant revenge that are pretty diabolical. Many plants lace their own tissue with poison to kill predators that take a bite. Take for example, the deadly nightshade, which poisonous enough to kill after consumption of just one leaf or three or four berries. Many types of human hallucinogens are toxins from plants like these that have been prepared for human consumption and can cause serious psychological damage. So next time you’re out in the yard, pruning some trees, burning some firewood, or eating leaves, watch your back. Plants are dangerous.Image Courtesy of ~Prescott/Some Rights Reserved
