Healthy and well-maintained trees amplify the aesthetics of your home and surroundings and create a positive vibe. It is essential to keep your yard green and healthy. Therefore, we suggest you seek professional help, especially when pruning your trees.
Trees can beautify where you live as little else can. They also make your surroundings greener, help maintain air quality, and boost overall wellbeing. It is therefore important that you keep your trees healthy and happy.
The only way to achieve optimum tree health is through regular maintenance and care. You should look after their everyday needs, but if your trees require trimming, have suffered damage, are unwell, or need a makeover, you should hire a professional arborist. Here’s why.
After a storm, we want to clean up the mess in our yards and lawns as quickly as possible. But in our haste, we often tend to damage even the trees that could be saved. A good practice going forward, therefore, would be first to assess the damage and then see what you can save, especially after violent storms.
Here are a few steps to help you be more mindful of tree care after a storm.
Trees can live for hundreds of years, especially the old ones that have stood the test of time. They radiate strength, beauty, and wisdom, just like senior people. But even the strongest of them can fall under adverse conditions. How can we ensure that they survive?
Here are some quick tips for your day-to-day gardening activities to help enhance an elderly tree’s life span.
Our long, New England winters can really do a number on trees. More often they’re left bare, exposed to the elements and in addition to dealing with the usual riff raff, have to deal with dry, moisture-less air for much of the season.
In recent years, people have begun to get better about wrapping their trees in the winter in order to not only protect them from the cold, but also give them a better shot at bouncing back successfully once Spring hits. As this has happened, we’ve found ourselves fielding the question of whether or not people should wrap their trees. What trees need wrapping and which ones don’t we need to worry about?
That’s the question that we’ll try to answer for you today, so let’s jump right in.
Mature trees are the kings of the forest. They provide us with a whole range of
benefits – from improving our air quality, to managing carbon and reducing runoff.
And it’s because of those benefits that we need to do our best to make sure we’re
taking care of them as best we can.
One way we do this is something called crown reduction.
When the summer turns into fall, it becomes time to put a lot of stuff away for the
winter. We put away our bathing suits, beach towels and shut down our pool. We
winterize our lawn mower and get our snow blowers tuned up.
That being said – should your garden hose also follow?
Trees can hold a special place in our hearts for a wide range of reasons. Sometimes
they simply stand the test of time – living through hundreds and thousands of years
of weather, families, history and the like. Others just give our lawn the look we’ve
always wanted it to have.
You’ve done everything right. You’ve planted your tree in the right place, given it plenty of water and you’ve mulched perfectly. But then after a few weeks, you’re noticing that your leaves are emerging and presenting a brown, yellow or even wilted appearance. When trees are doing this, there is most certainly a problem – but can you do anything about it? Let’s jump right in!
Sometimes folks like us are needed for major projects in your yard, but sometimes, it simply makes more sense to do things yourself. And sometimes, it’s more fun that way! But just like anything else in life, it’s important that you take all the necessary safety precautions before doing your day to day landscaping work. Here are four of some of the most commonly asked questions we get regarding this topic, and what you can do to keep safe.
