Without further ado, here are some of the ways you can better care for your trees this year:

Don’t Neglect Watering

Almost all living creatures need water to survive—and that includes the trees in your backyard. If you have young trees, make sure to water them regularly to keep them healthy. For most trees, water them from 10 pm to 8 am for the best results.

To assist root growth, you can use a deep watering technique. This approach also prevents surface roots from becoming weak. Keep in mind that the ground should be moist and not wet. Check the soil weekly to make sure it is in its best condition. You can use 3 inches of mulch over the soil to lock moisture in.

Remove Dead or Damaged Branches

Nothing good comes from keeping anything dead in your yard—including branches and limbs. If you want better looking and healthier trees this year, be persistent in eliminating any dead or damaged branches from your tree. These compromised branches can cause costly damage to your property if they fall accidentally.

When it comes to your trees’ health, you need to be more proactive in ensuring they don’t get crowded with damaged branches. Getting rid of these branches as early as they appear helps maintain your tree’s overall wellness and assists new growth. If you are not sure how to properly perform the task, get in touch with your local tree service company for help.

Don’t Forget About Pruning

The best way to start your annual tree maintenance is by having some winter pruning when trees are in their dormant state. Winter pruning generally benefits most tree species and results in better growth comes the spring season. This technique prepares trees to bloom their best in the coming season and keeps them safe from diseases and insect infestation.

When pruning, always use sharp and clean tools to make sure you don’t leave stubs in the tree. If you are unsure how to perform pruning, don’t hesitate to ask a certified arborist. Bear in mind that incorrect pruning may result in several adverse effects, so it is wise to seek assistance from someone who knows the process well.

Tree removal is essential if you want to keep your landscape safe and attractive.

Always leave the task to a reliable tree service company with years of experience and proper equipment, license, and insurance to perform the job.
