Planting a Tree: What Know for No Problems

On a warm sunny day, we all appreciate having a tree for shade. Trees also help our environment, provide a decorative touch to our yards while increasing the value of the property. However, trees, when located incorrectly, can present problems when they grow to maturity. To get the maximum benefit from trees, they need to be in an appropriate location. The biggest mistakes arborists and landscapers see are young trees and shrubs planted where they will present a problem when they reach maturity.

If you are planing to plant new trees this spring, make sure you understand how much space the require at maturity and other facts about the tree. As important as knowing where to place one is knowing where not to put it. For instance, for larger trees that will reach 30 feet or more, be sure to plant them clear of sewer lines and underground utilities. Their root system can cause damage that may result in an inconvenience as well as loss of service. Likewise, a tree planted under an overhead utility line (electric or communications) can also present a problem when heavy snows or ice storms hit.

If you need help determining a tree type that will work well for your yard, go to to download their brochure. Also, call 811 (Before You Dig) prior to starting any digging project.

Fraudulent Medical Billing Scams Targeting Kentuckians

Following reports from Kentuckians, Attorney General Andy Beshear has issued a scam alert to warn of medical billing scams targeting families.

Louisville residents have reported a suspicious van driving around paying Medicaid participants $20 for a DNA sample and health insurance information, while other senior Kentuckians are receiving calls offering medical devices through Medicare. One Warren County senior reported $1,300 in medical bills for back braces that were not medically necessary.

Beshear said in both scenarios scammers try to steal the victim’s insurance and personal information in order to receive reimbursement for services or medical devices that were not provided or medically necessary.
