Winter is a time of dormancy (similar to hibernation) for trees. There’s less sunlight during this season, so trees cannot produce as much food for themselves causing them to find ways to conserve energy, including losing their leaves. Here’s how you can help them through the long winter and also protect your property in the process:

1. Make sure there are no dead branches - While it’s still fall and the weather is still nice, inspect your trees to make sure no dead branches or limbs are hanging over your property. They could break off during winter, which could end up damaging your house, car, or another piece of property.

2. Trim or prune the dead branches - If you see any dead limbs or branches on the tree, then you may want to trim or prune them. Pruning the tree involves removing the dead, damaged or diseased branches to protect the health of the tree as well as you and your property. At Tarzan Tree Service, we can help you with that or if you’d like, provide tree removal in Virginia Beach, VA, and the surrounding area.

3. Put down mulch and fertilizer - In case there is a winter drought, you’ll want to put down mulch and fertilizer around the base of your tree. The mulch will help slow the loss of moisture and act as a temperature insulator for the roots, while the fertilizer will provide it with the nutrients it needs.

Using these steps, you can prepare and protect your trees this winter, and the rest of your property. You can also contact us for our tree services including tree stump removal in Virginia Beach, VA, and other local areas.
