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 Tips For Spring Residential Tree Care

by Fred Nelson

If you have trees in your yard, there are many things you should do in the spring to help them grow well. This will give your trees a great start after sitting in the cold and snow all winter. Keep reading for three tips so you can enjoy watching your trees grow this season.  

Inspect Your Trees

The first thing to do is inspect each tree in your yard. Look for problems, like frostbite or dead wood. If your tree has frostbite, new leaves will be dry and brittle. Fortunately, the tree will generally recover on its own as it grows. 

Hire a tree care service to prune the trees to remove dead limbs. The limbs may also be damaged by the winter or wind. Removing these limbs now will encourage new growth. Do not do this on your own, however, because if they're not pruned correctly you could damage the trees. 

Check Water

Make sure each tree in your yard has enough water to give it the strength to grow when the weather warms up. To do this, remove a handful of soil around the tree and squeeze it. If the soil sticks together, there is enough moisture. If the soil falls apart, it is dry and needs to be watered. Check this approximately once a week for the first few weeks of spring. After this, you can let mother nature give your tree the water it needs. 

If the soil is dry, you can give your tree a deep watering to ensure the water gets to the roots. If you use an irrigation system, inspect it as well for leaks. If you have a sprinkler system inspect the spray heads for clogs.  

Add Mulch

Using mulch around a tree offers many benefits. It conserves moisture when it rains and when you water your trees. Mulch also protects the tree from the cold months, as well as helps keep the soil cool during the hot months. Put the mulch around the tree. Move it away from the base so the tree is not smothered. Make sure the mulch goes around the entire tree. Replenish it through the spring and summer as needed. 

Hire a residential tree care service to help you. They can do all of the above for you if needed. They can also give you many tips on caring for your trees throughout the year, so they stay healthy for you.
