Spring is officially here! As blossoms emerge and the weather gets warmer, it is time to conduct some basic tasks for all your trees’ health. So, as to give your trees a lovely, long, and productive growing season, it is best to complete these tasks early in the spring season. Let us take a look at a few tree care projects homeowners and businesses alike can tackle to keep their trees healthy this spring! Read on to learn more!
Remove any twigs, leaves, or other debris that might have been accumulated underneath and around your trees. As you might or might not know, warm weather signals the time to remove any protective plastic or coverings that you might have had in place during the colder winter months.
Inspect Trees for Any Diseases or Damages
Look for any obvious signs of tree damages or disease, including broken branches, mold, holes, and fungi. Also, notice which branches do not grow any leaves or blossoms. These are probably dead and ready to be pruned away by a professional tree pruning service, like Harford Tree. Winter desiccation, otherwise known as “winter burn,” can occur when plants dry out in chilly winter conditions. Winter sunscald is another problem. It manifests as vertical cracks in the tree bark. Discoloration is another sign that something might be wrong with your trees. For example, some plants will yellow up if they receive too much water. If you’ve got any questions about tree damage, give Harford Tree a call today!
Plant Some New Trees
Trees bring multiple benefits to your business or home. They can reduce noise levels, stabilize the soil, and give wildlife an area to perch. Trees will also increase property values while decreasing the energy costs. Spring is a good time of year to add more trees to your property, as their roots will have plenty of time to dig in before the summer heat hits. Of course, each tree species has its own preferences, so feel free to get in touch with us about the best times to plant your new trees.
Water Your Trees
Once the soil has thawed out, water your trees to keep the soil moist on the dry days. This will keep them fed and healthy.
