Most trees struggle through the winter. They rejuvenate themselves and start to recover in the spring. However, that doesn’t mean your trees have all their bases covered.
A little spring service goes a long way toward helping your trees bounce back, probably even better than before. In this post, we discuss all you need to know about spring tree service.
If your trees suffered during the winter, a thorough inspection will reveal any damage. Watch out for yellow leaves, sparse growth, bug infestations, symptoms of disease, or soil issues.
You also want to clear the base of your trees of weeds and accumulated debris. If you need a helping hand from people who care for trees for a living, consider hiring a professional tree service in Denver.
Working with a tree service also gives you access to a Certified Arborist. As experts in tree care, arborists have the requisite training and experience to check trees’ health and provide professional advice on how best to take care of them.
Leaving the job to a seasoned expert means you can expect your trees to flourish throughout the season. An expert will know what to do without compromising your tree’s health in any way. If you notice something out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate to seek professional help.
Early Spring Pruning
Pruning trees while they’re still dormant, say, in late winter or early spring, offers several benefits. Trees that bloom from mid to late summer may benefit from late winter or early spring pruning.
For example, pruning apple trees or willow trees before growth begins paves the way for fast sealing during spring, when the trees grow rapidly.
Pruning may seem easy, but you need more than average gardening skills to do it right. Hire an expert to take the guesswork out of the equation.
Just about every tree needs trimming at some point. Trimming helps to keep your tree healthy and looking its best. Properly trimmed trees can make your property the envy of the neighborhood.
However, knowing when to trim your trees matters and can determine whether you need spring tree service or not. Trees grow and develop differently. While most trees do well with a winter trim, not all do. Examples of tree species you can trim during spring include:
- Apple trees
- Peach trees
- Cherry trees
Like pruning, trimming may require the specialized knowledge of a tree services contractor.
Removing a tree during winter or early spring, when it has no leaves, makes the job much less hectic. The absence of leaves makes cutting branches easier. In addition, colder and drier ground causes less disruption during tree removal, protecting nearby vegetation from damage.
