Illinois transplant, I came to Arizona in 2008 with my wife and son. We have an older home that needs more trees. I've loved trees all my life and would hike around Morton Arboretum memorizing the familiar and Latin names for all the trees I could. We continue to hike out here, and I try to identify as much of the flora and fauna as I can learn.

Have you heard of the APS or SRP Shade Tree Program? Please google it (or you may call me) as it is an incredible avenue to receive more trees for your home.
