Hey Mack what is your opinion on the Green Giant Arborvitae?
They are solid trees! They just won’t grow as fast as Leylands or Arizona cypress, but the green giants should get about 2’ of growth on a year, not many pests or diseases, maybe bagworms being the biggest issue. Should top out at 30+’ tall and about 10-15’ wide after about 10-15 years
Got a lot of crabgrass in my bermuda didn't think treating before seeding since nothing was coming up

This is a great product and if you get that pesky stuff early enough, it will last the season ...
Are the Arizona Cypress’ prone to bagworms as well?
Bagworms wiped out a few of my grandpa’s leyland cypress trees
Strictly for laughs ...

Had the last game of the regular season last night for my basketball league. We only had 5 players, and the other team had 11. We won by 23.
Bagworms suck!! There is a very small window to kill them! From May till June, they are in worm form and start eating foliage to make the “bags”, IF you spray the foliage while they are eating it, they will die! Once the bags form, nothing will kill them in the bag, outside of plucking them off and burning them or squishing them!
Man lots of grass and tree talk. I've learned a lot this week. I love finding out our members have other interests besides weather !

I have never seen or heard of bagworms on Arizona Cypress! I have golden globe arborvitae around my mailbox, they are about 3’ x 3’, and have been fighting bagworms the last 3 years or so, and they suck! Also for rose lovers, be on the lookout for: Rose Rosette Virus!! It’s decimating Knock out roses especially! It’s a fungus spread by mites, been around about 2-3 years, no cure, have to dig up and burn bush, to try to save your otherones, but probably ( definitely) an exercise in futility
They will go right down the row from one, to the next, to the next, eventually taking out the whole line/row. They will take out a 40’ tree in know time!
Looks like Arizona Cypress trees are around $50 a pop for a 2-3 footer! Yikes! And seeing as how I’ll need quite a few to stagger the road line at my house, it’s not going to be cheap. It’s an investment, though, so I’m not sure if I want to go the cheap route or not. It would be well worth it to plant a Cypress tree that wasn’t prone to bagworms. I’m going to look more into it
You should be able to get 3 gallon plants at Lowe’s or Home Depot for about 27$ or so. I planted one last spring , 3 gal and now it’s pretty close to 6-7’ tall from Lowe’s
My lemon trees are doing great
Have you tried looking at some local mom and pops nurseries? I found two at appletree orchard in Lexington, SC last year that were already around 3 feet tall for under $30.
Have any of you planted any maple trees? What are your preferences?
Red maples are pretty good. They have great red fall color, silver maples are good too. Of course, Japanese maples are fantastic, just do research and see which ones do good in the heat and in the South. Most like dappled shade, or even mostly shade. But there are a few red ones that can take full sun here in the south. They are expensive, but buy small, they grow faster and are a lot tougher, than most think!
I hear Yanny every time.
I hear "Laurel" every time.
You need your hearing checked !
I have heard both depending on what it is played on.
With that said, Yanni forever!
Anyone having an issue accessing the member map?
I hear Laurel in the audio.
It’s without a doubt Laurel.

I’m pretty sure it will become a SNL skit.
They're proposing expanding the NCAA tournament to 72 teams. Next thing you know, it will be 80, 88, 96, etc.
