The start of the spring season is such an exciting time of year. There is so much to enjoy, including the warmer air, the longer days, and everything starting to grow and again. With spring in the air, you’ll also have some yard work to get started on.
Below is our step-by-step guide to spring tree care.
- One of the first things that you need to do is have your trees inspected. You can even go out and do a preliminary scan of the trees in your yard and landscaping to identify if there is anything disconcerting in their appearance. You’ll want to see if branches are budding — those that aren’t could be dead and should be removed. Also, if you see areas of the tree that are rotting, that should also be removed. It’s good to have your trees checked for diseases. If there is something spreading through your trees, you’ll want to address that problem immediately.
- Parts of your trees that aren’t thriving need to be removed. Using the proper tools, you can remove these branches by pruning them away.
- If there is anything you want to add to your landscape or replace, spring is the time to do that, too.
- A big part of spring tree care is making sure that your trees are being properly nourished.
Since you may not be an expert on trees, it’s a good idea to hire a professional to help with each of these steps. To ensure safety for yourself and to avoid harming your trees, always consult with someone who does this for a living. Spring tree care is what will keep your landscape looking beautiful and well cared for, so make it a top priority.
