Tree care can be tough. Often, when you move into a new space, there are a variety of existing trees. With each tree or shrub having a specific set of needs, it’s hard to know where to start, especially if you inherited the tree or shrub rather than chose to plant it and are now taking on the responsibility of caring for it yourself.
There are a number of things you can do to help the trees on your landscape live a happy, healthy, and thriving life. These items include insect and disease protection, caring for the soil, giving newly planted trees enough space, and keeping the roots of the trees hydrated.
When you’re having a difficult time gaining the knowledge to do something, you find an expert and learn from them. We are the experts in what we do for your trees, whether that is installing new trees or shrubs to your landscape and teaching you how to care for them, or your tree is 100 years old, and you need tips on how to keep it alive.
When your decorative plants show a clear problem, it can lead to panic. But why is it that the only time we notice our large plants is after the problem is too far gone? Preventative care is the best medicine. And unfortunately with trees and shrubs, if they show signs of having a disease, it’s possible that they are too far gone for you to save. Tending to your landscaping includes every living thing on the premises, including your big, tall trees!
Damage that can show on your trees includes bug and insect infestations, tree disease, or even malnutrition from lack of care for the tree’s soil, such as fertilizer and water.
Fortunately, it’s not hard to remember when effective tree care should begin because if you are not currently treating your home or business trees with some sort of health boost, it’s time to start now.
There are seven crucial times that you should be focusing energy on your tree care regimen. These times are during early spring, mid-spring, summer, late summer, fall, mid-winter, and late winter. This schedule of fertilizing your trees and soil can diminish insects, keep disease away, and create a healthy environment for a thriving landscape.
Slow-release tree and shrub fertilizer in the beginning months of spring can help save your tree from any damage it managed to suffer in the winter. It can nourish the roots and soil of your trees and continuously keeps pests away from your landscape. When winter hits, it is dormant oil’s time to shine. Dormant oil can help get your trees healthy enough to sustain itself against bug infestations and cold-weather disease.
Maybe you have just built your own home, or have just gotten rid of disease-ridden trees. Whatever your reason, you may be in the market for tree or shrub installation. Planting trees not only enhances the look of your landscape, it can also greatly improve your home’s return on investment. Not to mention the great boost in curb appeal that it will provide!
