While your trees may appear to be completely dormant this season, they continue to grow and metabolize in various ways. For this reason, it is important to consider the many ways in which your trees should be winterize for the season. By winterizing your trees, you can ensure that they will return beautiful as ever for your landscape in the spring. As you are carefully preparing your landscape for the upcoming winter months, consider the ways in which you can effectively winterize the trees in your landscape for the chilliest days of the year.
Pruning will Keep Your Trees in Shape During the Season
Keep your trees in excellent shape by pruning them of dead leaves and branches. This simple step of winterizing your tree will help it to grow back healthy and shapely during the spring and summer months. Pruning your tree will also help to promote the growth of new and healthy branches as the weather begins to warm up in the spring.
Winter Watering will Help to Keep Your Trees Healthy
Similar to the need for watering in summer months, your tree will also need watering during the dry days of winter. Ensure that your tree stays healthy and hydrated with occasional watering during the winter time. While a little water is good for keeping your trees healthy in the winter, it is also important to avoid overwatering your trees when the ground is frozen to avoid root damage.
Mulching Can Protect Your Tree Roots
Protect the roots of your trees during chilly winter months by mulching before the temperatures drop in January and February. This mulch can provide your tree with protective coverage from freezing temperatures that may otherwise crack or damage roots before thawing in the spring.
