In honor or Arbor Day, we look forward to hearing Dash Schenck speak at our April 25th meeting. He plans to update us on how to care for trees in drought, deal with pest problems, when and how to water, fertilize and mulch, as well as pruning tips for the home gardener. Bring your tree questions and he’ll be happy to give his recommendations.
Dash started out in 2009 working on one of the crews for Davey at the San Francisco branch and fell in love with the industry. Here he learned how to climb and properly prune trees. He was then promoted to Plant Health Care Specialist and treated trees for pests and disease and went on to pass his Certified Arborists Exam. He is familiar with the Brentwood area and enjoys working in this location, as well as many other surrounding cities.

DIG’s 28th plant sale is almost here. Just a few short weeks to go. Our workers have been busy getting our thousands of plants ready for this sale. We have had such a great group of people every Saturday morning out at Wolfe Ranch . With all the rain and the beautiful weather we’ve been having, our plants are just beautiful and the selection is outstanding. We’ll still be out at the Wolfe’s working every Saturday morning until the sale, so come and join us. Get in on the fun and meet some ‘Diggers’ and make some new friends. Also, I’ll have a sign up sheet on Saturdays and at the next meeting for anyone who’d like to work at the sale. There are jobs for all abilities and we’ll need everyone’s help. We’ll also have flyers for the sale available, so be sure and pick some up to pass out to your friends.
We always have many pleasant and repeat customers who look forward to this sale every year to get their gardens started. It’s such a good feeling to be able to provide our community with a beautiful selection of plants at such affordable prices. I look forward to seeing you at the sale, Saturday, May 7.
