Preparing for Winter
The quality of “rest” or rather, dormancy affects the health and well being of your trees and landscapes year after year…Season after Season.
Plants and trees experience life cycles through the Seasons. Most trees “sleep” or go dormant each Winter to one degree or another. While some trees defoliate completely, others maintain their foliage but with both types, their growth rate slows to a crawl depending on the variety of the Tree. The quality of their rest period determines how healthy and productive they are when their growth period returns.
At Frontier, we prepare your Trees and Landscapes to do their very best throughout the Winter Season and set them up to thrive when Spring comes back around.
- Mulching to insulate tree roots and soil
- Proper Pruning and staking to protect trees during potentially harsh winter’s.
- Preparation in Winter creates healthy growth in Spring
It is important to protect the root systems of young plants and trees. Mulching is a good way to accomplish that task. Mulching works as a weed deterrent during the growth periods as well as retaining moisture. During the Winter months, it acts as an insulator to preserve warmth near the roots and soil.
Proper Tree Pruning and Tree Staking are also essential to protect your Trees from potentially harsh weather and to set them up to grow well again in the Spring.
Frontiers’ highly skilled team can prepare your Trees and Landscapes for the Winter and the coming growth season.
