Caring For Your Trees
Caring for your trees is vital. From chilly days during the warmer months through to prolonged dry spells, high winds and unusually long periods of high temperatures. The weather has certainly thrown up a few surprises over the past few years. Unfortunately, unlike us humans who have the advantages of virtually unlimited food and drink and plenty of temperature controls, trees just have to take whatever the day brings. Extreme temperatures, high winds or prolonged periods of drought all subject trees to high levels of stress. Just like humans, without a regular routine of nutrition and hydration, they begin to suffer! Read on to find out how to provide nurturing tree care for the specimens on your property.
Careful tree maintenance is vital
Trees under stress need extra care before tree lopping or tree pruning is carried out, as both these procedures bring additional trauma in the short-term. We suggest extra watering for your tree prior to these procedures, as well as avoiding any work which is drastic unless absolutely necessary. In many cases, deadwooding and removing any dying limbs can help to ensure that the nutrients your tree receives are used to nurture the overall health of the plant.
