Winter tree care is crucial to ensuring a healthy tree in the spring here in Markham.
As the seasons fluctuate and change, your trees go through their own transformations in order for them to best cope with the differences in weather and temperature. It’s easy to want to get out into your yard and care for your trees during the spring when everything starts to come back to life and being outside is enjoyable once more, but an equally important time to care for your trees here in Markham, Ontario is during our long winter season. At Hudson Tree Services, we want to assist you in everything you need for your winter tree care regimen.
Winter tree care is an important step to take for the longevity of your trees, since it enables the trees to better withstand the harsh and cold winters. There are several things involved in winter tree care. First, it’s always a good idea to take care of any pruning or trimming that needs to be done before the cold sets in, but after the tree has reached a dormant state. This will protect the tree from large breaks due to wind or snow accumulation. Another thing to help your trees is applying a root fertilizer to your tree, which will concentrate on root growth, enabling your tree to find nourishment in the cold ground.
One of the best things you can do to for winter tree care is to apply a layer of mulch. Mulch is not only insulating, but it is also nourishing to the trees and discouraging to hungry rodents or rabbits. Lastly, check your trees regularly during the winter for cracks in the bark or branches in order to prevent an unstable situation that can turn dangerous in a storm.
