Here are top 5 tips to prevent Tree problems during the year.
#1 Hydrate Your Trees

#2 Planting for all seasons, and for our region

#3 Removing troublemakers

# 4 Triming and Removing Fallen Leaves
Fall is the time to trim most of the trees. Trim to open up the tree’s crown and remove overload limbs and dead, weakened wood parts. You can use your chainsaw to complete the job quicker and easier. Removing fallen leaves will help your tree base can “breathe,” as well as remove tree-damaging insects. This also helps that plants below the tree get enough water and light during winter time.
Most of the trees don’t need fertilizer however fruiting and flowering trees may benefit from it. Late fall is the best time to fertilize because winter rains will put a stop to chemical burn.
