With the end of the drought in California many local land owners are needing to replace their dead trees. Most of California is out of drought conditions (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?CA) and with the large snow fall over the 2016-2017 winter, many lakes are at or above capacity. The snow melt over the summer will allow for people to water their lawns, install new sod and replace dead or dying trees.

Here is a map of the current drought conditions for 2017. Keep in mind that that this is just the beginning of summer and if we have another winter like the 2016/2017 winter we may see California completely out of drought conditions in 2018.

In Fremont, many local residents are looking to replace their dead trees. These trees have either been dead or have recently died because of the drought. It may see very bad but over all most trees survived the drought or will come back to life after a few months. Tree in California are used to dry and hot weather as well as drought conditions.

With the large increase in demand for new trees, nurseries are gearing up to start selling large quantities of new trees, pine trees, palm trees and even shrubs or small bushes. Those who had removed their sod and replaced it with artificial turf or lava rock may start thinking of adding some life to their lawns.

Due to the large number of dead trees, tree services like Garcia Amigo Tree Service and many others are in full swing. Some local tree services are booked out for a few months, just for removing dead trees off of properties. Once a tree has been removed it can be replaced with a new one.

Everyone in California seems to be anxious about getting their landscapes back to looking nice. More rain will be a welcoming sight, but hopefully there won’t be damage caused by too much rain. Here’s to hoping for a more normal weather pattern for years to come. In the mean time both Tree Farms and Tree Services will be quite busy.
