The Montana Department of Transportation is facing a budget shortfall. The department gets no money from the general fund so their funding come from diesel and gas tax revenues and trucking fees. But those sources are down.

  The warm temperatures and windy conditions that have been part of the Billings area weather forecast can be causing problems for trees and shrubs, especially the evergreens.

Last year a common sight around Billings was the winter burn or winter kill. Those were the brown sections that appeared on lots of evergreens.

The problem is water.  And now is the time to take action to prevent winter kill this season.

Amy Grandpre is the horticulture assistant for Yellowstone County Extension Service.  She says the key is to water the drip line.
