John Eisenhower, Flagstaff, Arizona discussed on Bulls and Bears Show
With John Eisenhower. I say certified arborist of Save a tree and John during the break before we jump to the next topic. You were Talking about winter route activity and for a majority of Arizona. The snowpack doesn't have a lot to do with our trees. But we do have affiliate in Flagstaff. A lot of our Phoenix Tucson listeners have second home cabin homes up in the mountains. Talk about the snow and the tree root. Just a recap of what we talked about in the break. Yeah, the Tree roots can be damaged by in climate, weather and cold weather. They just like the other parts of the of the tree above ground can suffer damage. And But the timing of that of snowfall in particular can be Helpful or not. Sometimes an early Foot of snow. Can actually provide it an insulation layer and keep the uh the ground relatively protected from the lower the air temperatures which are are starting to drop in the winter. And that's it's been known to actually be a benefit to trees to get an early snow because that snow layer will actually provided insulation and keep the soul temperatures moderated. Whereas if there was no snow and the temperatures plummet, sometimes the surface soil and the roots directly below it can be can be damaged. So interesting that a little bit of snow actually early in the season can be can be a help in terms of promoting that, or at least prolonging that root root activity that we talked about in the last segment. You want that to continue his long into the fall and winter as you can. On as temperatures are dropping, dropping, dropping, dropping. Dropping that route activity is going to slow down, so the longer you can kind of keep that soil nice and Um, nice and warm, huh? Relatively speaking that rude activity will continue as well. In that last segment. You talked about a new term mortality spiral. And when is it time.
