After one month in the US we returned Friday to find one small tree dead and another small tree dying. Our gardener was here this morning and said they were healthy last Tuesday and when he came back on Thursday they were dying.  He said a herbicide killed them. My husband thought he smelled something chemical but wasn't sure.


This is really odd because there is no access to our back yard so someone had to pour the herbicide over a wall. And why? The trees are not encroaching on anyone's property nor blocking any views.


So if this a serial tree killer, consider yourselves warned.

My guess is lack of water, unless you have an automated system.

No, absolutely not for a lack of water because gardener comes twice a week and waters. All of the other trees, plants, and flowers are beautifully healthy.  Another Flame Tree right next to the two that were poisoned is still fine. These two trees went from healthy to dead in less than 48 hours. No way would they deteriorate so quickly otherwise.  They were viciously poisoned!

Do you really believe your gardener that he was doing his job the month you weren't there?
If you do I have an Oasis in the desert I would like to sell you. Real cheap.
He probably did a good job when you were there. But when the gringo is away, the locals
still get paid.
He got his money for nothing and his chicks for free.

Sure odd then that our courtyard is lusher than it's ever been and so are all our fruit trees. Everything was spic and span clean. It's also rained in the past month a few times.  I stand by what I said without any doubt whatsoever because I know who did it.


And as far as disparaging our gardener:  We can hear him working at our neighbors house twice a week without fail. We have had neighbors ring our doorbell because of how nice our plants looks, wanting to know what we are doing special.  It is all thanks to our gardener.

How about installing a camera after planting new ones? Good luck.

Excellent advice and as a matter of fact, we had Horizon here today and they are going to do just that along with an alarm system that we should have put in before now.

So, what will Horizon do if there is an intruder on the property that trips the alarm? Will they intercede and physically stop him/them? Or will they wait until the police arrive and let them confront the intruder?

Horizon owner Kent told me that the police station dispatcher has a dedicated cell phone from the company that immediately shows them where an alarm went off.  They are not 100% for sure to respond on every call but I know for a fact they have responded at least twice in the past 2-3 weeks to alarms on the Caracol.  In one instance they sent 3 police vehicles with 8 officers with their weapons out up here.  


You could call Kent at Horizon and get more specific information from him on how they respond.  I do know he said the alarm goes off at Horizon's office in San Carlos in addition to the police station.Horizon's phone # is 622 132-4000.

I can attest to the police showing when called. We are not in SC yet, but have a camera outside and Cyberco alarms. My husband said a group of guys looking into our garage, which has a jet sky and a kayak. Called Cyberco to report. The police car was seen parked in front of our house within a couple of minutes. Nothing was found...
