Once you’ve packed up the lawn furniture and winterized the lawn, you may think your winter landscaping duties are over. But winter tree care is crucial to sustaining them through low temperatures, high winds, drier air and other conditions that your trees may find stressful. Use this advice to provide basic care and give your trees the best start when spring arrives.
Protect Your Trees’ Trunks
Although you can’t see them, your trees’ roots are vulnerable to harsh weather and need to be protected. Keep a layer of mulch around the base of each tree. This helps keep the tree warm and also keeps nutrients in the soil. Your tree will be looking for these during the next period of rapid growth in the spring.
Keep Your Watering Schedule
While you might not be spending as much time outside relaxing, it’s important to continue your watering schedule, unless the ground freezes. Newly planted trees are especially vulnerable, so water them thoroughly and regularly.
Wrap the Tree If Needed
Some trees are relatively fragile in cold weather, and those without thick bark are at higher risk of damage when the temperature drops. Consider wrapping the tree as part of your winter lawn preparation to shield it.
