Winter is the time when your tree is in dormancy. The way you treat and care for your tree during the cold months of winter will determine whether they’ll see the next spring in good health or not. G&V Tree and Landscaping Services is providing tree health consulting services for homeowners and businesses who need help to keep their trees in perfect shape throughout the winter months.

What Can You Do To Keep Your Tree Healthy During The Winter Months?

Even though it’s cold and wet out there, there are some steps you can take to ensure that proper preparatory ground is made for your tree while preparing them for booming spring months. Tree care experts in Arlington provide the following essential tree care tips for the winter time:

Prune With Caution

Trees go into dormancy during winter, making it a perfect time for you to prune. Pruning is the process of cutting away some parts of portions of a tree that are dead, dying or diseased. Pruning is best carried when trees are young to establish good structure and prevent damage such as limb failure and abnormal growth in the future.

However, pruning isn’t always an easy task. Delving into the work without prior experience can leave your tree damaged especially when a part is excessively cut, leaving over bleeding of sap..

Protect Your Trees From Freeze

Winter is characterized by extreme cold weather with long days of snowfall. Drop in temperature can have many devastating effects on your tree’s health, and this is why you need to protect your tree from the winter freeze. Young trees and some tropical species cannot withstand freezing temperature below 32 degrees. You can cover your most vulnerable trees with burlap, sheet, or tarps.

Prevent Dehydration

Winter is an essential nutrient for your tree to survive which they get at a very low rate during winter. To keep your tree hydrated, you should establish a culture of watering your trees, especially the young ones regularly.
