Spring in here, and with it so are beautiful plants and a variety of flowering trees! Although the weather has turned cooler again for a short time, these plants will not be deterred. Be on the lookout for flowering trees, such as white barked birches, crab apples, cherries, and magnolias. These trees have wonderful flowers and leaves that are emerging after the winter months, and as they add color to your yard and neighborhoods, they bring the promise of warm summer nights spent outside with family and friends. Make sure you are pruning off any dead branches so that the tree can fill in those spaces with new growth, and depending on your preference and how old the tree is, you may want to prune some of the lower branches to give them a nice, clean look.
