Misericordia Donation

Charitable Donation/November 2017

James Martin Associates teams up with Wilson Nurseries to continue their tradition of charitable giving

During our Partner Appreciation event in August, James Martin Associates (JMA) hosted a hundred guests for a great cause at their Vernon Hills location. Attendees consisted of industry peers and local vendors who have joined us at this annual event dating back to 2008.

Cocktails, catering, and lively music accompanied the charitable atmosphere, and at the end of the event over 2,000 raffle tickets had been sold! Dennis Tiliks of Wilson Nurseries had the winning ticket, and as the winner he was able to pick the recipient to receive the donation from the money raised at this event. Dennis chose Misericordia, a Chicago based non-profit organization that provides a wonderful community of care and services for people with developmental disabilities.

We felt privileged to greet long-time Misericordia parent, Sharon Horan, at our JMA offices, who accepted the donation check on their behalf. Dennis, Sharon, and Jim Martin, President and Founder of JMA, shared stories about their experiences with Misericordia before posing for this photo together.

Thanks to all of our clients, vendors, peers, and associates who have contributed to the money raised during JMA’s 40th anniversary year! Without your generous support we would not be able to donate to amazing organizations such as Misericordia.

Don't Lose Your Evergreens!

Landscaping Tips/November 2017

Don't Lose Your Evergreens!

We wanted to let you know about the importance of watering your evergreens. Evergreens planted in the last three years are at an increased risk of "winter burn", and/or loss of the tree if they are too dry. Luckily, we have had a recent increase of fall precipitation.

We highly recommend watering your evergreens through November, and even into December and January until the ground freezes. Once the soil freezes, the plant roots may not absorb water, especially in newer trees and shrubs. Additionally, a 2-3" layer of mulch will help conserve moisture in the soil. The most vulnerable evergreens include:
- Arborvitae
- Spruce
- Hemlocks
- Junipers
- Pine
- Boxwood
- Rhododendrons
