When you plant a tree, the act stretches far beyond that moment. As you dust your hands of soil and admire your handy work, this is truly the beginning.

That Spartanburg tree will likely live for decades or even centuries.

Usually, new growth on our landscape is a good sign. What could be more pleasing than lawns full of thick, green blades and Spartanburg trees budding with crisp leaves or vibrant flowers?

If Spartanburg tree pests, like cankerworms, ravaged your Spartanburg tree leaves this spring, chances are it could happen again.

Right now, cankerworms are about to settle in for the winter. They’re looking for a cozy home, a good place to lay eggs and another all-you-can-eat buffet come spring.

Each Veterans Day, the nation pauses. We come together to honor all US Veterans for their patriotism, service and sacrifice.

This year, more than 1,400 Spartanburg tree care professionals from across the nation volunteered for veterans on the second annual Saluting Branches: Arborists United for Veteran Remembrance Day.

A good trim refreshes trees. Once they get a healthy cut, they can spring into a new growing season with gusto.

Though there is one infamous pruning shortcut that holds Spartanburg trees back from a healthy start—tree topping.

We love seeing our Spartanburg trees grow tall and wide, but their sprawling roots are harder to adore. Often unsightly, they can also be an obstacle and make lawn care a hassle.

Spooky movies, trick-or-treating and costumes–Halloween is just fun!

…until you walk outside the day after Halloween and find your home and Spartanburg trees covered in toilet paper.

Halloween pranks, like TPing a house or egging a car, cause much more harm and bother than the pranksters likely anticipated.

Just like most living things, your plants and Spartanburg trees can only handle so much water.

If a flash flood hits your garden occasionally, your plants should rebound. But if your garden keeps flooding when it rains or is often affected by major floods, that’s a problem.

Now that fall is here, you may be itching to add a new Spartanburg tree to your landscape. Who wouldn’t want more of that gorgeous seasonal fall color? But with a frigid winter right around the corner, is it safe to plant?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We get to bundle up in cozy knit sweaters and savor every second of that crisp autumn air. And, of course, admire those rainbow-colored Spartanburg tree leaves!
