Inspect Your Trees for Damage

After the winter, take the time to inspect your trees for any visible damage or signs of disease. Look for cracked limbs, decayed areas, loose bark, or other issues. If you find any, consider calling a professional tree service company.

Prune for Health

Tree pruning is an essential part of maintaining healthy trees. Spring is the best time to prune dead or diseased branches. Summer pruning, on the other hand, is best for shaping and controlling growth.

Protect Your Trees

If you’re planning any construction or landscaping projects around your trees this spring or summer, take steps to protect them. Heavy machinery and digging can cause serious damage to the roots and trunks of trees. Try to keep the area around your trees clear and be mindful of their roots.

Mulching tree base

Mulch Your Trees

Mulching can help retain moisture and keep the roots of your trees cool during the hot summer months. Spread several inches of mulch around the base of your trees, but don't pile it up against the trunk.
