CEO’S MESSAGE

ALCA Supports

O

ver and over again I have seen first-hand how generous members of the Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association have been. So, when the holiday party was cancelled last December, the ALCA Board wanted to move forward with the annual raffle to continue the support of the Arms of Love Foster Care Program. In June of 2019, ALCA adopted the Arms of Love by reaching out to its members and transforming the landscape of a five-bedroom home that was in need of a complete renovation (inside and out) in order to house four young teens and their house mom. A beautifully landscaped back yard would help provide an outdoor family atmosphere and place of peace that was lacking throughout their young lives. This home provides a safe, loving, Christ-centered environment for these individuals who have aged out of foster care during a time when they are most in need.

With raffle donations generously donated by Horizon Distributors, SiteOne Landscape Supply, DTR Landscape Development, Hunter Industries/FX Luminaire, Brilliance LED, Cutting Edge Curbing Sand & Rock, Waibel & Associates Landscape Architecture, Robin Franklin, AZ Turf Masters/Synthetic Grass Store, All Season Wholesale Growers, Hill & Usher and Ewing Judy Gausman Irrigation & Landscape Supply, 453 raffle tickets ALCA CEO were purchased by members and friends of the landscape industry. Not only did the winners take home some fantastic gifts just in time for the holiday season, but Lee Eisenstein with Superior Sales Group split the pot and took home $2,265. It was with great pleasure that I was able to deliver a check for $2,265 to the house Mom, Danica Koestner, and visit with the girls at the Arms of Love Foster home. It is clear that the young ladies appreciate the gift of the beautiful back yard by taking pride in maintaining the landscape. Spearheading the initial landscape installation, ALCA Board member Bob Franchetto also pays visits to the property to check on the irrigation and landscape. Arizona has approximately 850 teens leaving foster care annually with no permanent family and minimal independent living skills. Teens aging out of foster care are at high risk of pregnancy, homelessness, human trafficking, drug addiction, incarceration or even death. We know the value of being generous and community-minded…..seeing the bigger picture, volunteering and serving others. I am proud to be a part of this great organization that gives back to those who can benefit from our good fortune. Sincerely, Judy Gausman, CEO

ALCA MEMBER PROFILE CIVANO GROWERS

Pioneering Plants that Beautify the Southwest

C

ivano Growers is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of the Arizona Landscape Contractors Association, supporting the landscaping industry throughout Arizona. Our passion is plants, and our mission is to provide our industry with plants that are proven to thrive in arid urban environments-- delivered to your project, at the best price. Our company has evolved throughout the years. What started out as a father and sons tree salvaging company in Tucson, is now a wellrecognized and respected plant grower providing quality plants to customers throughout six states of the Southwest. Our 80-acre growing facility employees over 100 employees and we steadily increase production each year. We attribute our success to our hardworking employees and to the strong partnerships we have built throughout the years with customers and colleagues alike. Together, we grow. Last year, Civano Growers introduced the first of many Texas Rangers to come. Our Leucophyllum frutescens, ‘San Antonio Rose’, is an improved Compacta that boasts a tighter growth habit and substantially larger bloom. Silver leafed

branches burst with bright rose-pink blooms continuously throughout the summer, especially when humidity spikes. Best of all, the plant is tough. It doesn’t damp off like other Texas Rangers; it stands up to even the worst conditions. We also recently released an Asclepias subulata hybrid that is a fantastic addition to any xeric landscape. ‘Butterfly Magic’ is a naturally occur-

that pollinators find delectable. With an average growth habit of 4’ height with a 3’ spread, this heat loving, drought tolerant plant is one that nativists and HOAs can both agree on. Towards the end of last year, we also released the ‘Bubba Series’; a group of three distinctly different, yet equally beautiful Desert Willows. The series is comprised of the cultivar ‘Bubba’

BRILLIANCE THE ACADIA + G4 CHAMELEON Add an Adaptor Ring to the G4 Chameleon For Use In The Acadia Fixture

from San Antonio Botanical Gardens. We used ‘Bubba’ as the backbone when breeding the series because of its proven track record. ‘Sweet Bubba’ is a cross of ‘Bubba’ and our cultivar ‘Sweet Katie Burgundy’. This tree exhibits green glossy leaves with a burgundy bloom. Best of all, it is seedless. ‘Bubba Jones’ is a larger Desert Willow with statuesque upright growth habit and an enormous fragrant pink bloom. It is a wonderful park tree that pays homage to the great horticulturalist (and parent plant), Warren Jones. This year, Civano Growers will continue to develop plant cultivars that are aesthetically pleasing, tough-as-nails, and easy to maintain. We are currently working on a couple of Texas Rangers, an exciting new Globe Mallow, and a couple other surprises, so stay tuned! Cultivating plants isn’t easy, and we love what we do. Developing a single plant cultivar takes years of research, scrutiny, trials, and errors. The plant must be beautiful, easy to produce, and able to perform in our harsh environment. Poor soil, high heat, reflective sun, wind, heavy monsoon rain, and freezing temperatures are just a few conditions our plants must champion. When you purchase a Civano Original cultivar, the result is a superior product that has withstood the test of time—because if you win, we win.

here has never been a more important time in the landscape and irrigation industry to have a trusted partner. Consider last year. Records were set for the most 95, 100, 105, 110, and 115 degree days. Twenty-eight days in a row passed in the summer without the temperature falling below 90 degrees. The hottest month on record, July, was quickly surpassed, as August became the hottest month on record. It was 90 degrees on November 16th! These are just a few of the weather-related records that were broken in 2020. We were also well below the average annual rainfall of 9 inches. Sky Harbor Airport received only five inches. It was a year with the fewest rainy days on record. As of this writing, 73% of the state in in an “exceptional drought” condition. For those of us in the landscape and irrigation industry, this presents a tremendous opportunity to promote water efficiency. Here are a few simple things that you can begin doing now: Make sure that sprayheads U.S. Drought Monitor January 19, 2021 Jan. 21, 2021)operating are operating at the proper pressure, typically (Released 30psi.Thursday, Sprayheads Arizona Valid 7 a.m. EST at higher pressures use more water, but less efficiently. One simple way of reducing the pressure is to turn down the flow control handle. This also helpsIntensity: the valve to close quicker and prolongs the life of the diaphragm.

For many years, Irritrol’s Rain Dial Controller has been one of the most popular irrigation controllers in this area. Did you know that an existing Rain Dial can be converted to a smarter controller with the addition of Irritrol’s Wireless Climate Logic? Even standard irrigation controllers can be programmed smarter, to water based on evapotranspiration (ET). Finally, use cycle and soak programming to help minimize runoff.

It’s versity Forest Service is working in conjunction with numerous growers a symbiotic environment that supports the growth of the collective habitat. throughout the South to develop the first urban tree improvement program3 In urban settings, growing conditions are quite different. Trees grow in tiny patches of highly compacted soil in medians that are engineered to shed water while surrounded by concrete buildings that reflect and intensify heat. Many of these trees are chronically stressed, yet they are expected to be big, healthy, and beautiful while providing shade for pedestrians, and serving other purposes. Trees have a naturally adapted resistance to the pests and pathogens that they have co-evolved with. Trees are able to fight off pathogens with protective processes, much like our own immune systems, given they are healthy. Trees that are chronically stressed are more susceptible to attacks by pests and pathogens; thus, more likely to fail. Planting resilient trees is imperative in the urban setting, and a recent study tested the most important resource for plants: water.

the University of Arizona, tested the water requirements of nine frequently planted native and non-native trees. Over a four-year period, these trees were subjected to significant water deprivation. During this time, the water stressed trees were measured and observations were made as to their health and resiliency. While a couple trees performed as expected, many declined, and one species stood out: Red Push pistache. Although subjected to water stress, Red Push continued to grow steadily and was proven to “thrive with less than recommended watering rate.”1 A study published in 2017 that was conducted by researchers at Northern Arizona University discovered that the genetics passed from mother trees to their offspring help promote drought tolerance2. It was found that genetics

in the United States to select, breed, and test resilient trees. One Arizona grower, Civano Growers, is participating in the research program by growing and trialing trees that show resiliency to heat and drought stress. Specific tree traits are identified; selections are made and tested individually or bred together. Resistant family lines of Chilopsis linearis, Fraxinus velutina, and Sophora secundiflora are a few plants that are a part of the experiment. Plants have been cultivated throughout the millennia for numerous reasons. Food crops are cultivated for increased production, ornamentals are cultivated for aesthetics, and more recently, we are using cultivation as a tool to breed trees that are more resilient to extreme climate conditions. This topic is becoming more important in light of climate change. While many states in the Southwest are accustomed to extreme heat and drought, other states further East are more recently experiencing the effects of higher temperatures and reduced precipitation. Their urban forests are at risk, and research is being directed towards developing more resilient cultivars. Through breeding and trialing trees, the result will be a more sustainable tree palette. 1. A Study of Irrigation Requirements of Southwestern Landscape Trees (arizona.edu) 2.
