Landscaping Trees Winterization Checklist

You don’t have to be a tree doctor or expert to keep your tree safe through the winter. However,  there are several factors to consider when preparing your garden for the cold season. 

Here are some tips to protect your trees from various winter hazards this year.

 

Snow and Ice 

Heavy snow and ice storms can cause branches to bend or break under the weight of snow and  wind. Here are some ways to keep your branches strong. 

  • Cover the branch with a sturdy cloth up to 2/3 of the weak point. 
  • – Prune and remove weak branches. 
  • Have your tree doctor or arborist tie together the main branches of a large tree with multiple  trunks. 
  •  

Root injury 

Roots can be injured in winter because they do not go dormant as quickly as branches, shoots and  stems. Keeping the soil temperature high and moist before the ground freezes is essential to  protecting the tree from damage. Some of the best ways to reduce winter root damage are: 

  • – Cover the newly exposed roots with about 3 to 4 inches of finely chopped mulch. Spread  the mulch about 6 inches away from the stem to prevent roots from forming together.
  • – Water the plants abundantly before the ground freezes to prevent frost penetration.
  • – Cover the cracks near the new planting with soil. 
  •  

Animal damage 

Animals such as mice, rabbits, and deer can damage trees as they try to escape cold temperatures  in search of food. The best strategies to protect trees from animal damage include: 

  • Reduce nesting habitat by cutting grass and minimizing protective cover.
  • – Use physical barriers to keep animals away. 
  • Spray repellent. It is non-toxic and lasts for one season with just one application.

 

Welcome spring 

Plan to protect your trees from the cold, animals and bad weather before temperatures drop. And  if you’re not sure which of these is best for your garden, call your arborist for more information.
