4 Tips for Autumn Tree Care

1.  Fertilize properly
As the months start to get colder, the need to fertilize does not go away. You may not need to fertilize your grass and your plants, but your trees still need it. The roots and shrubs of your tree continue to grow in the fall, meaning you still need to properly fertilize it. This will ensure your tree is always getting the right amount of nutrients it needs – increasing root production.

2.  Prune your tree
Before the harsh weather comes, you should spend some time pruning your tree and removing and dead or broken branches or leaves. This will help keep your tree big and healthy during the cold months, and it will allow for new growth next season. You may need to do this 2-3 times before you see cold weather.

3.  Check the structure of your tree
Similar to the foundation of your home, the structure of your trees are super important to maintenance. If your tree has any sort of structural defect, you will want to put in solutions before the harsh weather comes. If you notice your tree is slightly curved and leaning towards your home, you may want to give Sesmas Tree Service a call to help straighten it out.

4.  Provide proper protection
Your tree experiences a lot of stress and trauma throughout the year – whether it be from weather, neglect, or animal destruction. If you really want to see your tree thrive and you want to avoid tree removal, you should properly protect your tree. That could be replenishing the mulch to keep the roots warm, or wrapping your tree to prevent animals from damaging it this winter.
