Tree Care Tips from Arborists to Land-owners
1. Inspect trees and shrubs.
When melting snow and rainfall occur simultaneously, your landscape may encounter standing water and/or flood damage. Pay close attention to critical risk trees and consult a professionally-trained arborist to determine whether removal and/or trimming is necessary.
2. Prune dead branches.
Want healthy trees? Proper pruning protects your green assets from the unsafe branches that suffered damage from winter weather. Your local McQuillin Tree arborist may recommend cabling and bracing, to reduce strain and stress damage from high winds, or lightning protection for future spring and summer storms.
3. Plant new trees.
Spread your love for trees this spring. McQuillin Tree Service shares several resources you need for proper planting, following the “right tree, right place” principle.
