How To Care for Your Trees During the Winter Months

It’s common for people to take their minds off their landscapes during the winter months. At Piscataqua Landscaping & Tree Service, we know that trees, shrubs, and turf, are living things and to help them thrive, they require the appropriate attention at different intervals throughout a four-season climate.

With the winter months upon us, it’s a fantastic time to address anything from foundation shrubs to the large trees in your yard. Here are a few reasons why we recommend tree and plant healthcare during the winter:

  • Trees and shrubs are in their dormancy phase and any type of reduction pruning and thinning means less stress for your trees and plants.
  • Trees that lose their leaves in winter provide some enhanced access when pruning for structure. In addition, it gives us better visibility to assess potential storm hazards — it is always better to correct these potential dangers now before it becomes an emergency later during bad weather.
  • And lastly, once the ground freezes, we can easily and efficiently access trees with our equipment with minimal impact to the landscape unlike spring and summer.

Now is a great time to get a tree and plant healthcare checkup, so make an appointment today and get ahead of the Spring Schedule!
