Believe it or not, we are currently in the thick of the winter season. Now that the weather is cold and everyone is bundled up in jackets, gloves, and hats, it is important to show your property’s trees some of the same kind of attention. If you want your trees to last, you need to show the care that they deserve. Keep reading and discover a few ways to protect your trees in the winter season!
Mulch Around The Base Of The Trees
Mulch is a landscaper’s best friend. Not only does it add to the aesthetic of a property, but it also serves a protectant for tree and grassroots. It is a good idea to mulch new trees and plant life with a few inches of mulch or wood chips. The great about mulching is that it is easy to do and can often be completed in a matter of minutes. Be sure to spend some time and money mulching to preserve the life of your trees.
Check New Trees For Cracks
Many people make the mistake of not checking these trees for damages throughout the year. This is especially important in the winter season. If you want to protect your trees through the winter season, you want to check new plant life for cracks in the ground. This can easily be fixed by filling the ground with soil.
Water The Ground In The Fall
Although the fall season has come and past, it is worth mentioning that it is a good idea to water the ground at the end of the fall season before the first freeze of the season. The reason for this is to lessen frost penetration that would otherwise do a number on tree roots.
