  • Are your plants turning Yellow?
    Wednesday, July 21, 2021 1:00 AM
    Last week I submitted and article about leaf scorch. I would like to follow that up with this article about iron chlorosis, because both of these conditions appear when the weather is very hot and windy, and both will make the leaves on shrubs and trees turning yellow. 
     Iron chlorosis is the most common micronutrient problem of ornamentals, shrubs, vines, small fruits and trees in western States.  
    New leaf growth on affected plants are yellow, light green, or white with distinct green veins resulting in interveinal chlorosis.  In severe cases, the leaves may be entirely white.

  • Sierra Motel fire debris cleanup progresses slowly
    Wednesday, July 21, 2021 1:00 AM
    More than five months after a fire destroyed the Sierra Motel, the cleanup is finally underway. Charred debris is slowly disappearing from the site across the street from Lovelock City Hall.
    Lovelock Mayor Mike Giles said debris cleanup got started only after the city sent written notices and photographs of the debris to the motel owner in California who has not replied. If the debris cleanup is not completed in a timely manner, the city could eventually declare the rubble a nuisance, have the debris removed and place a lien on the property for the cost of the cleanup.

  • What is leaf scorch?
    Wednesday, July 14, 2021 1:00 AM
    The past couple of weeks, I have been asked to look at numerous trees and shrubs that have dead, dried up leaves. The plants may just have the outer edges turning brown (appear to be burned) or the leaves are completely brown except for the main leaf veins. These symptoms would indicate a condition called “Leaf Scorch”.    
    Both of these conditions are called leaf scorch, caused by a tree or shrub’s inability to take up sufficient water to meet its needs under harsh summer weather conditions. Water is taken up by a plant through its fine feeder roots and transported through the vascular system to the leaves. When it is unable to take up enough water, the leaf tissue that is farthest from the major veins will dehydrate first. I usually see this condition on newly planted trees or trees with impaired root systems, dues to improper planting or poor soil conditions.
