Talking About Tree Care Services

Hi there, my name is Neil. I am excited to share my knowledge about tree service with you all. My land is absolutely covered in fruit trees. Before I started providing the trees with regular care, they did not produce much fruit each year. I worked with a tree service professional to see if we could improve their yields across the board. My tree service professional eliminated pests and improved the health of my trees in a short span of time. The trees started producing fruit in abundance after that point. My site will explore the extreme level of care provided to trees by these dedicated professionals.

3 Ways To Keep Your Newly-Planted Evergreen Looking Healthy

by Fred Nelson

Adding evergreen trees to your yard can be a simple and effective way to enjoy colorful foliage throughout the year. Unfortunately, newly-planted evergreens can often turn brown or yellow in color.

If you have noticed your evergreen is looking less than its best, here are three ways that you can address the problem to keep your newly-planted tree looking healthy in the future:

1. Determine the extent of the damage.

Before you can begin treating your newly-planted evergreen, you need to determine how severe the damage is. If the inner portion of the branches are turning brown while the outer needles remain a vibrant green, this is a normal part of the growth process and nothing to be concerned about.

If you notice the whole tree changing color, then this could be a sign your evergreen is suffering from transplant stress. You will need to take swift action to help nurse the tree back to health so that transplant stress doesn't cause your newly-planted evergreen to die off.

2. Give your new tree adequate water.

It's essential that your new tree has access to plenty of water to help it make the adjustment to its new home. Just relying on the overspray from your lawn sprinklers and rainfall often isn't enough to keep a newly-planted tree healthy.

You should strive to ensure that your evergreen gets watered exclusively at least once a day for the first two weeks after planting. This will help the root ball to become more established in the soil, allowing your evergreen to thrive in your yard.

3. Add some mulch to your tree's base.

Since the water demands of a newly-planted evergreen are high, it's important that you keep the soil surrounding your new tree moist at all times. This can be challenging if you live in a dry or windy climate.

Taking the time to add some mulch around the base of your new evergreen can be a beneficial way to help the tree's soil retain more moisture. Choose a mulch with medium-textured materials. Fine mulches can pack down into the soil too easily, while large-texture mulch products are too porous to serve your evergreen's watering needs.

Being able to care for your newly-planted evergreen properly ensures that the tree will become properly established and remain vibrant over time. Assess the amount of damage, provide adequate water, and apply mulch to your tree's base, and your new evergreen is sure to serve as a valuable asset in your home's landscape over time.
