Baby it’s cold outside! But that’s no excuse for neglecting the health of your trees. Tree care and maintenance is a year-round task, and there’s no better time to give your trees a check-up than right now to ensure they are strong and healthy well into the next season. Here are our top tips for optimum winter tree care.

1. Inspect

Inspect your trees for any signs of ill-health. Obvious indicators of problems can be the presence or signs of pests, changes to and loss of leaves, changes to the bark or trunk, presence of fungus around the base of the tree and significant deadwood.

Unless you’re an expert, it can be difficult to be sure of exactly what you’re looking for and you might miss the signs.  To remove any confusion, have your local Arborist do a full inspection of your trees. An Arborist will be able to tell you if you have any hazardous trees that are sick or dying and advise the best course of action for their care and on-going maintenance.

2. Prune

It’s important for the health of your tree to maintain a regular pruning schedule, and winter is no exception. Pruning trees when necessary, keeps them in optimal health, promotes healthy growth and structural integrity and removes any sick or dead limbs that can not only be hazardous, but can also increase the risk of pests and disease invading your tree.

Unless you know exactly what you’re doing and why, it’s probably best to leave this job to the professionals and have your local Arborist prune your trees. Incorrect pruning can harm your trees and leave them susceptible to pests and disease, weaken their structural integrity and make them more prone to sickness.

3. Mulch

Mulch assists with moisture retention, temperature regulation, repelling pests and disease and, it looks and smells great! Plus, it’s budget friendly and easy to use. Get mulching this winter and your trees will reap the rewards for many weeks and months.

4. Protect

If you have any new or particularly susceptible trees that might be sick or struggling, be sure to provide them with some extra protection from harsher conditions over winter. This could be in the form of a cover or wrap or providing a temporary shield or shelter.

5. Water

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean your trees don’t need water. Keep watering throughout winter, just don’t over do it. You want the ground to be moist, not sodden or water-logged as this can actually do more damage than good.
