What's New - Fall 2016
Fall Needle Shedding on Conifers
Every fall Earth-Wise receives phone calls from customers concerned about the browning needles on their pine, spruce and fir trees. Not to worry, this is a normal process. Depending on species, location and overall health of the tree, conifers typically hold on to needles for 3 – 7 years. Older needles become less efficient at photosynthesis due to shading from new growth and excess wax buildup. Thus, these older needles are no longer productive for the tree and they are shed in the fall.
This year, Earth-Wise was a recipient of the Colorado Better Business Bureau's Best in Practice Safety Award. Earth-Wise's achievement was earned through promoting a safety culture, following stringent guidelines for the State's Cost Containment Program, and being accident free during the policy year.
