Top Three Tree Inquiries from the Home Outdoor & Design Show

Peterborough Home Outdoor and Design Show

Treescape Certified Arborists were exhibitors at The Peterborough Home Outdoor and Design Show last weekend for our fourteenth year in a row! An impressive number of exhibitors and patrons packed the Memorial Centre and Morrow Building to experience the show that just seems to keep getting bigger and better with age.

Residential Tree Care: Top Three Tree Inquiries

We enjoyed speaking with many people about their residential tree care concerns. Here are the top three tree inquiries and related topics that people had from the show:

  1. Pruning and management of mature trees,
  2. TreeAzin, and the potential of Emerald Ash Borer in Peterborough and the Kawarthas, and (since spring is around the corner),
  3. when is the best time of year to transplant trees?

We also received many requests for free estimates, to which Mike Crough will be replying for the next two weeks.

Finally, no show is complete for us without the delightful requests like, ‘Can we have a balloon?’, and ‘Is this the tunnel to the Morrow Building?’ which was directly opposite our booth. Of course, we said yes to every request!

Thanks to all the friends and customers for saying “hi”. We always enjoy seeing people gearing up for spring and for the warm growing season ahead.

Happy spring planting!
