In March 2008, Springfield Rotary was visited by local Arborist and Horticulturist Kenneth J. LeRoy. It’s the time of year we start to think of being outside again, and taking care of some yard work. LeRoy gave Rotarians tips to watch for in regards to the health of their trees on their properties. While they provide us with clean air, aesthetic value and shade, trees are also can be deadly and destructive. Images of tree destruction were shared with the club, illustrating the results from age, wind and disease upon these plants, which can have severe impact upon homes and properties.
