Spring Tree Care Checklist

Spring is almost here, and that means that warm weather and outdoor living are about to make their triumphant return to our lives. But, before we can dive headfirst into the season of rebirth, let’s take a minute to make sure our trees are ready to shake off the winter.

Check Your Trees for Damage

Now that Winter has officially said its goodbyes, you should take some time to examine your trees for signs of disease and damage. Though most trees are equipped to handle the troubles that winter can bring, they can still fall prey to frost and other winter-related dangers. You’ll want to do this before they start budding for Spring so that you can curb any major issues before they spread. If you’re not sure whether or not your trees are healthy, an arborist can help!

Prepare Your Trees for Springtime Success

Once you’ve given them a thorough examination, you should address any issues that you found. Prune dead or diseased branches before they spread their issue to the rest of the tree. You’ll want to get some pruning done even if the trees are healthy so that they have the best chance of thriving once the warm weather really picks up. You should also go ahead and provide them with nutrients to give them a much needed boost. Slow-releasing fertilizers are a great way to help them thrive.

Plant New Trees

Now that the weather is warmer and the frost is gone, you can start adding new trees to your property. Make sure to choose the best spot for them to enjoy ample sunlight without overcrowding them with their peers. If you’re not sure how to proceed, we’re ready to help you out.
