Winter Tree Care Tips
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.
- Even though it was 70 degrees recently, remove snow and ice when it’s there. 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.
