The most concerning trend emerging from the data, however, is the fact that most Americans don feel they are managing their stress well and that the health care system isn there to help them cope. A little over half of the participants said they received little or no support for stress management from their health care providers, and while 32% felt it was important to discuss their stressconcerns with providers, only 17% said they actually did.Driving up to the two day Cereals event at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire, this week, Stowmarket farmer Tom Jewers was struck by how lucky we are in East Anglia this year when it comes to crop performance.Raction : Dans cette population, normment de personnes sont en dsaccords mais rsignes.

mulberry cookie bag a great shade tree
Summer is here and the heat has already come. Here’s a great selection for lots of shade: Tipuana tipu (pronounced “tip poo ah nuh TEE poo”). It is native to the tropical regions in Brazil, Bolivia and Argentina and is very well adapted to the Southern California climate. It has been botanically classified into the Leguminosae (pea family), which is abundant with annuals, perennials, shrubs, vines and many ornamental trees.
This semi evergreen tree is adorned with small apricot yellow flowers at this time of year, followed with pea like seed pods in abundance. The tipu tree is a rampart grower and can obtain heights of 25 feet in just a few years from a 15 gallon or 24 inch tree.
With such rapid growth, it is very important to adopt the arboricultural philosophy of juvenile pruning. Trees that grow so quickly need some training in the formative years to obtain good structural branching and a sturdy root system by proper tree staking.
It is also very important to remove the supportive tree stakes once the tree becomes established. Stakes left on too long cause the trunks of some trees to actually grow around these stakes or to be scarred from wind rubbing the trunks against the stakes, which opens wounds for infections.
It is also vital to note that you should use only rubber or plastic ties from the trunk to the tree stakes. Wire can cut into the tissue of the tree, causing long range and costly problems. The proper tree ties are available at most nurseries and farm stores in the area.
Ultimately the tipu tree will reach heights of 40 to 50 feet with a very large arching crown. The foliage of this tree is light green with compound fern like leaves and has very lacy weeping boughs with a very exotic overall appearance.
The tipu tree is not fussy about soils and can grow with regular watering. It will also tolerate some drought after three to five years of good garden care, depending on seasonal rainfall and proper stewardship. The tipu tree is also fairly cold hardy to about 25 degrees.
In the landscape, it’s a great tree for quickly creating a canopy of foliage to cool your home, shade a patio or protect other plants beneath the under story.
Because of its toughness, it is also becoming increasingly popular and used as a street lining shade tree in many communities. I like using low branching tipu trees, for as they mature and become structurally strong, they make great climbing trees for kids.
My suggestion when using tipu trees or other trees that have a vigorous root system is to install protective root barriers. These barriers can save you headaches, landscape problems and money.
The barriers do not cost that much to install at time of planting and it’s like buying a little of garden insurance for aggressive root systems.
When planting trees at any time of year, it is very important to install a thick three to four inch layer of good clean mulch around the basin of the newly planted trees. This helps to conserve moisture, cut down on weeds and keep the expanding root system cool. Always remember to keep the mulch away from the trunks of the trees.
Shade produced by trees is a good thing and it is important to plan before you plant, be it trees or your overall landscape theme. The temperature variables can be five to 10 degrees cooler under a properly selected shade tree or combinations with other plantings.
The heat islands of driveways, rooftops and hardscapes can increase the temperature dramatically around your home and shade trees can aid in the cooling of the outside garden and the interior of your living environment.
So, to create some shade for your garden, your neighborhood streets and your community village plant trees.

Great shade trees. In less than 6 years, ours have grown from a 15 gallon container to about 30 tall. On the downside, they become very messy, and would not recommend planting them anywhere around a swimming pool. We were told by the nursery that they only shed leaves/flowers/pods for two weeks in April. For the first few years that was true, but now they seem to shed flowers from spring to fall. Also, heed the warning about the roots if planted next to a lawn, the roots like to come up through the lawn.
We have two Tipuana Tipu trees in our La Mesa, California back yard. They about 45 50 years old,
and they are enormous (at least 80 feet tall and wide). Every June, they blanket our backyard with what seems like millions of tiny orange yellow flowers. When the wind blows, it looks like it snowing cheese popcorn! We constantly have baby trees starting underneath these two big trees.
One of the most interesting things about these trees is that, when you trim a limb off of a Tipuana tree, they emit blood red sap. They are currently extensively established in LA. The secretions of these insects ultimately wind up coating underlying concrete sidewalks and roadways. Even parked cars get covered by this secretions. Overtime, the tipu, which was originally brought in for its shade benefits, is discovered to be the invasive pest that it is. In many parts of the world the tree is classified as an invasive pest.
We have a ten year old Tipuana on our grass strip between the street and sidewalk. It is 40 feet tall and at 7 years old the roots got under the sidewalk and broke the sprinkler pipe. Our whole street is experiencing broken sidewalks, ruined lawns and now the insect mentioned above. This insect is new in San Diego and is dropping a sticky green fluid all over the sidewalks and our cars. The trees are pretty when they bloom and give great shade, but otherwise a nusance. We are all looking into getting rid of them for something more freindly.
I have a stupid Tipu in the backyard corner of a house I bought in Southern California. It 30 feet tall, and a perpetual mess. It sheds in my yard, and two neighbors yards. I would sweep the patio an hour before guests would arrive, and you wouldn even know it with the amount of new leaves dropped. It weeps something on my patio table when it dropping little branches. It finally stopped 2 weeks ago (when it looked dead). Now it sprouting new growth. Great. I going to let it bloom just to see what it all about, then take it down. Its roots are very invasive. It has damaged my drainage and moved my sprinklers. I cut a 4″ root with a chisel to free up some pipes, and it bled bright purple red sap. EERIE. Creeped me out. Goin down this fall. Palm trees going up.
The Tipu is a fine tree. Those of you who are complaining about it either didn do any research before planting, or moved in after the tree. They ARE big aggressive trees. Just like an Oak, or a wide pine, they are aggressive and shed they grow fast.
They are not meant for “grass strip between the street and sidewalk” or “the corner of a yard (with neighbors)” or “over a pool”
These trees come from Brazil where everything has to be aggressive to survive.
It is simple when planting. Imagine what an Oak tree would do to the area in 50 years then decide. Because this plant will do it in 5 8 years! I hope I helped.
We have a 4 year old Tipu in our backyard which hangs over our pool area, and it is a bit messy when it drops leaves, but WE LOVE IT. Such a pretty tree and gives us so much shade during the hot part of the year. Also, we always get compliments on it. Our Tipu is temperamental when changing the water schedule specifically, increasing the water schedule which seems to cause shock and that when it usually loses its leaves. Our tree has its leaves 9 10 months out of the year. If we had the room, I would plant more of them. But it is a super fast grower and big. I cannot speak for the root system, but with how fast the canopy grows, it would make sense for it to have an aggressive root system. We live in a newer neighborhood and this tree is irreplaceable when it comes to helping shade our exposed yard and our pool area. Just know that if you have one near your pool, you have to be diligent about getting the leaves out or it will clog your lines. We scoop the majority of leaves it drops in our pool while we sip coffee in the morning and we don have any problems. Also, our tree does not when we prune it. We fertilize every six weeks with organic fertilizer (cottonseed, bone meal kelp) and practice long/deep watering. Love this tree in the desert!
