Some helpful tips to consider while caring for your trees throughout the winter, courtesy of our last major snowstorm in D.C.:

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.
