With temperatures hitting 70 degrees this week, it’s hard to not think about spring. While we do live in New England and anything can happen, it looks like that winter cold may be in our rear view mirrors. With the transition into spring beginning, you can follow a few steps to ensure that your trees stay as fresh and healthy as possible.
Inspection: As the winter meltdown has already begun, much of our landscape could see standing water or flood damage. While this wasn’t as harsh of a winter, there is always damage risk along with pest damage and aging. Kelly tree provides helpful tree health examinations to make sure your landscape is in the best situation.
Pruning: Winter can do some damage to tree branches. With proper pruning, you can get out with the old and in with the new branches. Dead, dangling branches are not only unhealthy for a tree but they also create a health risk in the case that they fall.
Planting: If you are looking to plant new trees, spring is a great time to do this. It can be both the economically and environmentally right move. New trees throughout your yard offers a wide range of benefits including, reduced noise levels, improved property values, reduced air temperatures and humidity, and absorbing carbon dioxide.
Mulching: Properly mulching improves soil conditions, reduces over maintenance and visually improves the look of your landscape. It’s a great thing to do during the spring time.
Spring is truly a beautiful time in Massachusetts and getting your trees ready for the summer time is one of the best landscaping maintenance moves you can make.
