It may not feel like it, but technically spring is here! Hard to tell with snow on the ground though. But soon enough the leaves will be popping on trees, the weather will warm up and the nasty, unpredictable winter will be a thing of the past.
Time, then to turn your attention to caring for your trees, although generally an asset to your landscape they need to be carefully inspected to identify any hazards such as broken, cracked, split limbs, rot, decay, deadwood and other conditions. We’ll also assess the need for routine maintenance pruning, something that should generally be done every 3-5 years, depending on the species, age and location of the tree.
While tending to your spring landscape maintenance, planting your annuals, mulching the plant beds and fertilizing the lawn, don’t ignore what could very possibly be the most important and irreplaceable, as well as possibly hazardous aspect of your landscape-your trees.
