Spring Maintenance For Trees Include:
Inspection for disease, pests, and damage: Just after the winter months is the best time to have your trees inspected. It is easier to see any signs of stress or issues.
Trimming: Early spring is the best time for pruning, removing dead or weak branches, and promote healthy growth.
Mulch: Cleaning out the mulch around the trees, removing any debris, leaves, and twigs. Adding new mulch if necessary.
Check the Irrigation System: It is important trees get the proper amount of water and not too much as we go into the rainy season.
Examine the Roots: The roots tell a lot about the health of a tree. You also don’t want any roots pushing through into walkways, creating a hazard for guests.
Fertilizing: A healthy tree is less resistant to pests and diseases.
