Spring Tree Tips

As the weather warms up and the
flowers begin to bloom, it’s important that we look out and care for our
trees. Here are some quick tips to help your trees thrive this

  1. TREE
    : Without leaves, it’s easier to see if you tree
    has any damage. Make sure to check for broken or hanging branches, cracks or
    dead limbs in the tree. If you do notice any tree damage, make sure to contact
    a qualified tree arborist at https://www.cwarboristassociation.ca/
    The best and easiest way to take care of your tree is to mulch. Mulch
    provides nutrients and moisture to the surrounding soil, helping your tree
    stay healthy and hydrated. When mulching, make sure to make a ring of mulch
    around the tree, keeping the mulch away from the base of the tree (like a
    volcano). The tree bark can rot away if the mulch is against the bark,
    leading to the tree’s eventual
  3. WATERING: Making
    sure your tree is hydrated is very important – especially as we move into
    the warmer and dryer summer months. If you have a young tree, watering is
    crucial, as their roots aren’t as deep in the ground, and will have a
    harder time finding wet soil. To combat this, once a week place your hose at
    the base of the tree and put it on a slow trickle of water for 10-20 minutes.
  4. BLUE RIBBONS: Many in the
    community have tied a blue ribbon around a tree, in support of the #saveourwater
    campaign. This is fantastic! But please make sure that the ribbon is tied
    loosely around the tree. Tightly tied ribbons will trap moisture against the
    bark and cause damage.

With these tips, your
trees willbe thriving! Hope you all have a fun and safe
