Winter Tree Tips You Can Count On


January 1, 2018

According to Mencer’s Tree Service, having some handy winter tree tips is important, especially when it comes to the long-term management of your landscaping. If you think it’s okay to leave your trees alone during the colder months, Mencer’s Tree Service disagrees. Below are some winter tree tips that you may want to consider.

Pruning is Important

When you prune your trees, the function and beauty of the tree will continue. When you properly prune your trees, you are reducing limb loss risk and other problems that can occur during the winter. When you prune your trees regularly, you are reducing the risk of damage should a dead limb fall on your neighbors house. If you are unable to keep your trees pruned, call or click and talk to Mencer’s Tree Service about regular tree trimming.

Why Should I Prune in Winter

After the leaves have fallen off the trees, it’s easier for you, or your arborist to see the trees structure. Make sure that your summer annuals are removed, as there will be less disruption to your landscape if there is much work to be done on larger trees. If your soil freezes, it’s best to call Mender’s Tree Service for tree pruning to reduce the possibility of an accident.

Pruning your trees in the winter can also avoid nasty diseases that are active and may have spread during the spring and summer.

Mulching in Winter? Of course!

Mulching helps your soil retain moisture while improving the structure and nutrient levels of the soil. If you are unsure about mulching, call or click and talk to Mercer’s Tree Service about mulching. It really can help your trees, shrubs, and plants.

Contact Mencer’s Tree Service in Knoxville about bracing and cabling your trees or for an inspection. After the foliage loss, an arborist will be able to spot any problems more quickly.
