We offer winter tree care for those in the Etobicoke, ON area who want to protect their landscaping when the weather turns chilly.
Here in Etobicoke, Ontario, the temperatures dip very low during the winter months. The averages in December, January, and February tend to be below zero, which can severely impact the trees in your yard. At Hudson Tree Services, we offer winter tree care for those in the Etobicoke area who want to protect their landscaping when the weather turns chilly.
One of the most common problems that can occur to trees during the winter is cold stress, which can cause cracking and other injury to the bark. For younger trees, you can wrap them in blankets to protect their fragile trunks, but that won’t solve all problems.
One of the most important aspects of winter tree care is to prune trees at the proper time. If the temperatures drop into the negatives but you have just pruned the tree back, you will expose the tree to potential damage.
At Hudson Tree Services, our experts understand winter tree care, so they know the correct timeline to keep trees protected from cold weather. If there is a lot of wind, your trees might also experience winter drought. This occurs when the ground is frozen, so the roots can’t absorb enough water. One way that we can prevent this problem is to place a thick layer of organic mulch that can hold heat in the ground.
