According to NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), the Reno/Sparks/Carson area is experiencing the dryest spells in the history of weather reporting. We've only reached this level of dry warm winter temps five other times since measurements started in the area.
Busineses and homeowners should evaluate their ability to water their trees, shrubs and turf areas, and don’t be fooled when it snows (please let it be soon!). Dry winter conditions result in serious damage to newly planted landscapes as well as mature and established trees.
Damage to vegetation includes, but is not limited to:
- Increased susceptibility to insect attack
- Undersized leaves in the spring
- Desiccation and dieback to fibrous(nutrient absorbing) root tissue
- Needle browning and pre-mature needle drop in evergreen trees
