Winter is right around the corner, & with this comes the typical yearly joys of the holidays. Time spent with family or holiday shopping for a friend. Unfortunately, that one neighbor is, once again (for the third year in a row), stringing up their Christmas lights just a bit too early. You can feel the festivity & joy of the season in the air. But, beyond all the fun winter will bring, it also brings the risk of winter wind & snow damage to the trees on your property.
Trees heavily coated with snow & ice can be subject to winter storm damage. We have all experienced or know someone who has gone through the unfortunate incident of tree branches causing costly damages to a vehicle or home. With an upcoming snow season, tree pruning may be the right solution for your property to prevent such problems. Now I know that for new homeowners or individuals just beginning their lawn care journey, phrases like “Tree Pruning” may look alien to you. So let me break it down.
Pruning trees, shrubs, & hedges is recommended to maintain healthy growth and address safety concerns. One benefit of pruning is to avoid the spread of disease by removing infected branches. Pruning can include taking out thin growth & removing suckers (stems growing up from the roots). Pruning allows for airflow & light, which prevents fungus & other potential plant health issues. Preventative winter measures help to protect & preserve the landscape of your property that you have worked hard to maintain. Trees & shrubs’ branches can bend over under the weight & strain of several inches of snow or more. Not to mention snow that is followed by rain, turning into sleet, can also result in broken branches.
Dealing with the winter damages can have a lasting effect on your garden & backyard for seasons to come. With Six Diamonds Landscaping Services, proper winter preparations can be made seamlessly. One should look at the process of winterizing your yard as a yearly affair.
