  3. Well, here is something everybody who is providing Austin tree removal services should attend for increasing their knowledge on diseases.

  4. This morning I drove past a row of ornamental trees. I couldnt get a very good look at them but they had red leaves (they may be green at other times of the year) in an arrangement which appeared to be similar to a Rowan tree, but I cant guarantee this, and lots of clusters of yellow berries. I'd like to get something similar for my garden. Any ideas?
