Caring For Trees In The Deep Cold of Winter
Winter is here but that doesn’t mean the yard work is over. Frigid temperatures, snow and ice all have their effect on trees and their branches. Whether in Thornhill, Toronto, or anywhere else with icy conditions, healthy trees can be damaged by severe cold that makes them brittle and dead trees can be an outright danger.
Weighed down by ice or snow, a falling branch can cause property damage as well as pose a danger to any person or pet that happens to be standing nearby when it breaks. When branches fall on hydro lines, they cause incredible inconvenience by cutting power when it’s needed the most, especially for people who have only electric as a heat source. If you have any doubt whatsoever about the safety of some trees or branches on your property, tend to those concerns immediately for the safety of yourself and your property.
When Is It Safe To Prune or Remove Trees?
Wintertime damage is preventable but caring for trees, especially at this time of year, can be dangerous. Professional tree removal services are highly recommended. It only makes sense that a well cared for tree is going to have less accumulation of ice and snow, thereby lowering any potential hazard as well as adding to the property’s appeal. Winter is a great time for tree service, and having trees pruned in cold weather will not harm them.
The reason tree removal or pruning is best done in winter is trees are dormant in cold weather and there is less chance of disease infecting the fresh cuts. Plus, many insects that harm trees and would feed on those cuts are also dormant in cold weather so they are also unable to harm a freshly pruned tree. Trees that have been severely damaged and need to be removed entirely can be a daunting prospect but not if you contact one of the tree removal services in your area and let a certified arborist handle the job.
