I recently read an interesting article published by the National Association of Realtor’s HouseLogic website on “The Best Trees to Grow Curb Appeal”. When thinking of what tree is best for your yard (maybe you want to replace one that has outlived its beauty) here are a few recommended:
- Crape Myrtle – drought and deer resistant
- Saucer Magnolia – Does well in Clay
- Eastern Red Cedar – Not picky about soil
- Fig – Grows in this zone and produces fruit after 2 -3 years
Others are listed but these stood out to me. See the full article at:
The bonus here at Stillwaters Estates is that if you want to replace a bush or tree in your yard you can make the purchase and our maintenance crew will put it in the ground for you.

Saturday, April 11th: First Hike of the Year on Seminary Hill Planned
The Seminary Hill Natural Area’s first public hike of the year, the Spring Walk, will be Saturday. Robert Godsey, a retired Centralia College professor and a longtime expert observer of the natural area, will lead the hike. Expect to see early growth on the hill at a more advanced state than normal, due to this winter’s unusually warm weather. The nature walk is free and open to all ages. Free cookies and refreshment will be provided by the Friends of the Seminary Hill Natural Area. The Spring Walk begins at 10 a.m. at the Barner Drive entrance, near the east end of Locust Street. For more information email email@example.com or visit facebook.com/seminaryhill.
Weather: A couple lovely days of sunshine and our spirits are raised again! The forecast is for bouts of cloudy, rain and spring-like weather for the next few weeks. We may see 70 degree weather late next week so that means progress towards summer.
