We love trees here at Pasadena Learning Gardens and aspire to help the amazing urban forest we reside in.   Stress from drought has weakened many trees making them more vulnerable to disease and insects.  Here is a wonderful summary of the issues and it would be great if people replied with stories of both the victims and trees that are thriving in this situation.

I’m a UC Master Gardener with a huge interest in growing my own food, beekeeping, medicinal herbs and living sustainably. I also have a passion to share these journeys with like minded souls. I work with many off site communities and manage an educational organization and two outdoor learning facilities.
