UNIQUE TREES ~ Two trees planted near the Family Clinic Pharmacy have drawn a lot of attention this year, according to Herb Ginn, Extension agent for Lawrence County. He said many have stopped by the Extension Office to inquire about the trees, which are commonly known as the Chinese Pistache. The Chinese Pistache can reach a height of 60 feet, but are usually 25-35 feet high and have a 25-35-foot spread. The trees have a medium growth rate and are resistant to breakage, but do require pruning to develop a strong structure. They can tolerate different types of soil such as clay, loam, sand, acidic and alkaline. They like well-drained soil and can grow in partial shade/part sun to full sun. For complete information about the trees, stop by the Extension Office.
