Fall Tree Maintenance Tips
Use Fertilizer– Between the heat of summer and the cooler temperatures of winter, trees lose a lot of nutrients just trying to stay healthy. Fertilizing will create the best growing condition for all of your trees. Fertilization will make your trees root systems’ stronger and help them to resist disease and pests in the future. It is important to know exactly how much and how often to fertilize your trees. Our professional tree experts can recommend the best fertilizer to use on your particular type of tree.
Planting- Fall is a perfect time to plan your new tree planting. Because the sun can be brutal and puts a lot of stress onto the tree there is less chance of a drought and damage from the sun. Fall planting gives new trees the opportunity to make their roots strong and prepare for healthy spring growth.
Prune- Fall and winter is an ideal time of year for tree pruning, especially for certain species of trees. Tree pruning service providers can remove dangerous limbs to reduce damage during a storm. This is also a great time to thin your trees to get ready for the upcoming holidays and holidays lights. The best time of the year to remove parasitic mistletoe is during late fall and winter when your tree has dropped its leaves.
Water- Many people think that snow and ice means that trees will have plenty of moisture, but that is not the case. One easy way to ensure proper hydration is to water before the winter starts, but also to break up the frozen soil during the winter.
Winters are not as harsh in Texas as they are in other areas of the country, but they are still something that you should prepare for ahead of time. Every few years, we get a harsher than usual winter, so you might want to invest in tree blankets to prepare for those coldest nights.
