Snow and Trees

While Monday’s snow accumulation didn’t come close to what Winter Storm Jonas brought us, your trees could still be in need of some TLC. Here are a few helpful tips to keep your trees happy:

  • Inspect your trees. Trees may need structural pruning if they have damaged branches. Find pruning how-to videos on our website. Hire a certified arborist as needed.
  • Remove snow and ice. Removing snow and ice from the tree’s branches will protect tree branches from bending and breaking.
  • Avoid sweeping salt into tree boxes. Salt can make it more difficult for roots to absorb water, even into spring.
