Seasonal Tree Care: Preparing Your Trees for Weather Changes with Empire Tree Services

As the seasons change, so do the care needs of your trees. With the fluctuating weather conditions, it's important to ensure that your trees are well-prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws their way. At Empire Tree Services, we understand the importance of proper tree care throughout the year, which is why we've put together this guide to help you prepare your trees for the upcoming weather changes.

Spring

As spring approaches, it's time to start thinking about pruning your trees. This is the perfect time to remove any dead or damaged branches, which will not only improve the appearance of your trees but also promote healthy growth. Additionally, spring is a great time to fertilize your trees to give them the nutrients they need to thrive throughout the growing season.

Summer

During the hot summer months, it's essential to keep your trees well-hydrated. Be sure to water your trees regularly, especially during dry spells, to prevent them from becoming stressed. Mulching around the base of your trees can also help retain moisture in the soil and regulate soil temperature. If you notice any signs of disease or pest infestation, contact Empire Tree Services right away for a professional assessment.

Fall

As the leaves begin to change and temperatures start to drop, it's crucial to start preparing your trees for the winter months. This includes deep root fertilization to provide your trees with the nutrients they need to survive the cold weather. Fall is also a good time to inspect your trees for any signs of damage or disease, as well as to remove any dead branches that could pose a risk during winter storms.

Winter

Once winter arrives, it's important to protect your trees from the harsh weather conditions. Heavy snow and ice can weigh down branches and cause them to break, so be sure to gently shake off any excess snow from your trees. If you have young or newly planted trees, consider wrapping them in burlap to provide extra insulation and protection from the cold.
