If you look at the landscaping around your house, the feature that seems to stand out over the rest are the trees. Trees are a beautiful addition to any yard and can add shade, height and texture to your homes curb appeal. There are an abundant amount of trees that you can have planted at your home to fit your needs and what you like. The problem is that there are lots of people that don’t know what it takes to care for your trees. They are not a plant that you can have put in the ground and let grow. If you do not offer any care for the tree you will not get a long lasting and good healthy tree. It also will not look like the tree that you thought you were going to get. It also could end up being what kills the tree and then you will have to start all over again. The tree requires care throughout the whole year no matter the climate that you live in. 207 Tree Service outlines what care your trees need throughout the year.
How Do You Maintain a Healthy Tree in Spring Time?
The first season that is most commonly talked about when it comes to your plants and trees is the spring. The spring is usually when most things come back to life and the plants and trees will start to flourish. The trees are waiting for the weather to change the warmer temperatures to come out. That is why you will see them start to grow and new flowers and other growth will appear. That is why it is important to have your trees inspected for the spring. This is also when you will see that there are pests trying to attack your tree. You also might see that there are branches that were damaged in winter and need to be removed to prevent further damage. You also want to make sure that your trees have been fertilized and any new trees are planted.
How Can We Protect Our Trees in Summer?
The summer is the next time in the year that you will see and the temperatures will get even hotter. The temperatures will continue to allow your trees to grow but the heat makes it hard. The best thing that you can do is to make sure that your trees are watered extra during the summer. You also want to water at the cooler parts of the day to allow the water to get deeper in the ground. The care that you are hoping for is to keep the root system healthy.
What Happens to Trees in Fall Season?
The fall weather is when the heat goes away and the leaves start to fall. The cold temps are not what the tree needs to thrive so it will start to go into a dormant state. The leaves will fall off of most trees and they need to be cleared away so that the ground underneath is not being suffocated. You also want to take this time to prune back the trees and remove the branches that are not suitable to further growth the next spring season.
Should You Trim Trees in Winter?
During the winter you want to make sure that you are keeping your trees safe from storms as well as the cold and freezing temperatures. You may need to add mulch to the ground to protect it from freezing over. You also may need to have your tree trimmed if there is a storm and the branches become a hazard.
