Spring is when trees prepare for a summer of healthy growth. The recommended time for major tree care in Ontario is from the end of winter to the start of summer. This a great time of year to make an appointment with a professional arborist. Certified arborists in Toronto and surrounding areas can perform necessary maintenance to avoid problems, diagnose them, and keep your valuable trees growing vibrantly.
Healthy Trees Mean Healthy Growth
Three important springtime procedures help guarantee a healthy summer for your trees. Consider how to fertilize, get dead wood removed, and properly prune your trees before the summer sunshine arrives.
Trees benefit from good maintenance, and springtime attention gives your trees a boost before hot summer months. There are three aspects to a good a spring tree care agenda: fertilization, deadwood removal, and proper pruning.
Your trees are waking up from a long winter of dormancy and starved for nutrients. If you feed your trees regularly, they’ll grow to their full potential and be resistant to disease and insects. Springtime fertilization for trees is very beneficial. A professional arborist can “deep feed” your trees, providing essential nutrients to all points in a tree for healthy growth.
Disease and damaging insects are prone to attack an unhealthy tree. Symptoms of these attacks can sometimes go unnoticed by home and property owners, resulting in the death of the tree. For this reason, it’s important to have deadwood removed in the spring to take away the vulnerable areas.
Pruning your trees properly is essential. Smaller trees may seem like a simple job, but pruning a tree without the proper tools and techniques will actually harm it. Large trees are sometimes able to recover from poor pruning practices, but they can still be severely damaged. Pruning a tree the wrong way can kill it. It’s always best to have a full prune and inspection performed by a knowledgeable arborist before spring. Arborists are trained to know what to trim and the best time to do it. Getting your trees ready in the spring will help avoid summertime problems.
Trees enhance the aesthetic beauty of your property as they mature. As they grow older and taller, they also add to its value, and can help reduce utility bills. Keeping them in a healthy state will allow them to grow to their maximum potential.
