Tree Health Care for the Spring Seasonal Change

There are a few things you should think about regarding the health of your trees as springtime draws near.

Tree Inspection

Examine the trees you have for winter damage. Look for any winter damage to your trees before the leaves begin to grow. Check for evidence of illness or insect infestation, damaged branches, or fissures in the trunk. If you see any problems, think about contacting an arborist to examine the damage and make repair suggestions.

Pruning During Dormancy

Cut back your trees. An essential component of tree maintenance is pruning. The early spring season, before your trees have begun to leaf, is the best time to do this. At this time, trees are still dormant, and pruning during dormancy puts less stress on the tree.

Trim any dead or broken branches, as well as any that are rubbing against one another, in the spring. To prevent the tree from being harmed, make sure you are using the proper trimming methods.

Mulching the area surrounding your trees’ bases can help them retain moisture and stop weeds from sprouting. To avoid rot, make sure there is a distance of a few inches between the mulch and the tree trunk.

Deep Root Fertilization

Consider feeding your trees in the spring if you notice that they are looking a touch drab. Choose a fertilizer that is suitable for the type of tree. This may be something you should seek the help of an arborist to do. The type of fertilizer and the special tools needed to apply it to tree roots that are deep in the ground are things that arborists can help with. Contacting the arborists at Action Tree are able to use their knowledge and experience in applying the exact fertilizer that should be applied to the roots of your specific tree during the early spring season.

Watering Early

Your trees will require extra water to be healthy when the temperature rises. After the ground has thawed in the spring water the area under your trees. Watering the ground early in the season allows water to permeate deep into the ground where the roots are. Doing this before the weather gets hot helps the tree saturate itself to have moisture in reserve before the hot days arrive. The Kelowna region can be prone to drought, and a healthy watering in the spring prevents playing catch up during a time when water needs to be more frequent.
