If you're like most people you've probably never heard of a dibble. A dibble is a tool used to push the dirt out of the way so that you can successfully plant a new tree. A dibble is used not to plant big trees with the plant very small trees because it moves the ground out of the way where you have about a 3 to 6 in opening wide and about 6 in to 10 in deep. This opening will allow enough room for you to put the root of the tree you're going to plant in it and that will allow you to let the tree grow so let's get started.
The first thing you're going to notice about the dibble is it has an edge to place your foot on. This allows you to push down with your foot just as if you would be pushing a shovel in the ground. So you take the dibble and you put your foot on it and push it down into the ground. Once you have it in the ground you work it push the handle back and forth all the way forward and all the way back so that it creates a hole. You or simply moving the dirt out of the way to create a hole in the ground. Once you've created that whole then you can get your tree or other plant and begin that process.
Take your plant and put the root in the hole that you've just made with the dibble. Be careful here not to let your root bend back when placing it in the small hole. Call creating a j with your route and it's not healthy for the new plant. So If you have your tree root in the hole and you make sure that it's not too deep. Amber from prior articles you want to keep a little bit of the top of the root exposed so that your tree can grow properly. Make sure the tree is straight up and down so that it's not growing sideways or at an angle. The next thing we're going to do is push the dirt back onto the roots again with the dibble.
Using your foot to put on the edge of the Dibble you would put it on an angle near the whole you already made and push it in the ground. Going to do this about 10 in from the current hole that's already there the one that has the tree in it. Once you have the Dibble stuck in the ground add an angle near the other hole you simply push the handle of the devil towards the hole so as to push the dirt up against the tree roots. Once that's accomplished you take your foot and press around a newly planted tree. This way you can push all of the air and make sure the dirt is firm around the newly planted tree. This will allow the tree to be secure upright and grow healthy and for many years.
The first tree that you're going to want to avoid is a Bradford pear tree. Apparently this tree is an invasive species. The reason for that is that it grows to a large size and it releases Millions a little seeds that will plant themselves all over the place and choke out other life. I would go as far to say that if you currently have a Bradford pear growing on your property go ahead and cut it down and get rid of it because it will invade all the other land around it. while they are pretty trees they kill off lots of other tree life at a very rapid pace. so do yourself and the rest of us a favor and just go ahead and get rid of it.
The second Tree on our list is called a Chinese flame tree. This is another invasive species. If you have one of these grown in your yard or on your property all you have to do is wait about 5 years and you will have a gigantic mess of Chinese Flame Trees. The scientific name for this tree is Bougainvillea Goldenrain Tree.
The next tree you want to be aware of if you value your property, which most people do, is the mimosa tree. This tree has a host of problems including but not limited to Insects love it, it gets disease easily, The Roots grow wild, and it doesn't live very long. one other thing to know is that it's not a very good-looking tree. So simply stay far away from that one.
There's another tree we covered in an earlier blog. the mulberry tree. If you're like most people in Indiana, Or in Evansville you have seen or have had one of these in your yard. you have probably eaten the fruit from the mulberry tree. This is another tree the insects love. the roots are very sporadic and will grow into concrete pipes or other underground objects and tear it up. Also the tree produces a very large amount of pollen which many people are allergic to.
The next three on our list is called a silver maple. You have probably seen these trees around because they grow everywhere from the bottom of the country in America all the way to up in Canada. They aren't bad looking trees and they also grow quickly which means you get shade pretty quick out of them. while the top grows fast The Roots also grow fast so fast in fact that it will tear up your concrete sewage lines or pipes, basically anything you have near them. They also drop thousands of new seeds every year. Even if you plant this tree where it won't damage anything else the problem becomes with all the seeds of drops. Eventually one of those seeds is going somewhere where it shouldn't be. Then that little seed is going to grow into a tree if not cut down immediately then you'll have damage on your hands. It's just better not to plant this tree in your yard.

A tree on a property can mean many different things to a realtor. Most of the time a tree adds value to the property but sometimes the tree may take some of that value by damaging underground pipes or septic systems. Most of the time though a realtor loves trees on a property. Here are some of the types of trees and why a realtor might like them.
First we have to start with the one beautiful tree that almost everyone says "I wish I had one on the property" and that is a weeping willow. Is there a more sad and charismatic tree anywhere else in the world. The bad mamma jamma is so scenic and liked that it practically comes to life and helps sell the property. If we ever get a call about wanting to remove one of these trees without a phenomenal excuse we may cry.
Look at the beauty of this tree. There is no way this can be bad for a property. If you are a realtor anywhere, please leave us a comment and tell us your experience with Willow Trees on the property and how it helped you sell it, or didn't.
The next tree on our list is the one the only Oak Tree. Did you know the biggest and oldest oak tree in Evansville is at the state hospital? Yep, its over 200 years old and over 23 feet in girth. That is a large tree. a person looks so tiny standing next to one of these. Of course we are going to add a picture. Oak trees, as long as they are healthy, and does not need removed, are another great tree for property value. Oak trees can outlive the house by many years. They give a home they homey feel.
This baheemuth can add a ton of shade in the summer, and provide the warm gooey feeling of home that a home should have. Just look at it.
Third and final type of tree we are going to list here is a Maple. Now, there are many different types of maples and some can have very long roots so you really have to have any structures inspected when buying a home with a maple tree. These maples are very common in Evansville. A maple has Lucius green foliage in the summer time that you can bank on providing lots of shade. If you have 2 or 3 of these trees clustered together the charm of them really come out in the fall. These things can really make the property pop with color. I mean some of the most beautiful trees on earth are when these beauties start to change. If they are planted near a pond or lake and you can see the reflection you even get more value. It is going to make it very easy for your client to say they want the home in the middle of fall with this kind of reflection on the water.
Evansville is about 2.5 hours southwest of Indianapolis located on the Ohio River in Indiana.
One of the big attractions in Evansville is the Indian (Native American) angel mounds. If you ever make it here to give it a visit it’s a nice walk through a scenic area. The mounds are around 10ft tall and are protected, but you can walk right by them and it’s pretty cool to see.
What else can you do in Evansville? Well you could take a trip to the Mesker Park Zoo. It’s no where near as big as the Louisville zoo or St Louis zoo, and its not free, however the prices are reasonable. They have enough attractions where if you spend a full day there you will be able to see them all. One of the best parts of the zoo in my opinion is the bird cage with all kinds of tropical colored birds that you can walk around while they are flying all around you. You can also get some feed sticks and let them eat from your hand. It is very fun and any kids will like it more than you do.
Here are 3 easy and simple things that doesn't cost too much to do in Evansville Indiana. You and your family will have a nice relaxing time no matter which of these 3 you choose.

Check out the text out of this book: The Sibley Guide To Trees Author: David Allen Sibley
As you can see straight from the text in the book it is working into the part where it is classifying the different types. Later on in the book they also talk about how some trees could be considered shrubs and some shrubs trees. I guess there is no real defined lines, but enjoy this below.
"In theory, the term subspecies should be used for well-defined variation that nearly rises to the level of species, while variety is used for somewhat less well-defined variation with differences that are relatively small or inconsistent. In practice, however, the distinction between subspecies and variety is often unclear and arbitrary. and many authorities now advocate making variety a synonym of subspecies. trees. In a few cases common names have been modified to distinguish them more clearly from other species A few of the most commonly used alternate names are listed in each species account beneath the scientific name.
SIZE AND MEASUREMENTS
The maximum size listed in the species accounts in this guide are for the maximum height recorded in North America and has been compiled from several sources. Seeking and documenting big trees is a popular hobby, and the official “National Register of Big Trees” is maintained by the organization American Forests."
If you have lived in southern Indiana very long than you know what kind of winters we have. They can be very mild with little snow and ice or they can be very harsh with up to 2 feet of snow, and sometimes an inch or 2 of freezing rain.
What does this mean for your trees? Well different things can happen.
To a healthy tree that has been maintained and has our tree trimming services than if probably wont see much damage. There is always a slight risk that the weather can cause any tree to snap or limb to break. Even with the bad ice storms we get a healthy tree that is taken care of, has all the dead limbs removed, and excess cut off can still have some breaking issues but not nearly as much as any others.
If you have a healthy tree that doesn't get any kind of maintenance to it than you still run the risk of having heavy snow or ice weigh down the branches. The dead branches will naturally be the first to snap. They come down and do not care what is underneath them. Crash and that's it. It has no sympathy. Now you have a much bigger problem. Better get out the phone and start to call the insurance adjuster. It's even worse if you are a renter of a property.
The worst of the worst is the trees that are already dead. Sometimes you can tell when a tree is no longer living. These are the most dangerous trees and you could really save yourself some headaches by calling us and having us do a tree removal. We have some specials going on right now in autumn so you can get this taken care of before winter hits.
