Early-Fall Tree Care Tips

Preparing trees for the winter should be happening in early Fall. They will also end up thriving next Spring! Preventative maintenance and good practices in the fall boost trees’ health and well-being during the winter and creates a promising environment to promote healthy trees in the Spring. Keep your trees happy and healthy all year-round! Here are some things to know about getting your trees ready for Fall.

Look for pruning issues

After the leaves are on the ground is the time to plan for pruning your trees. You can see the branches better after the leaves have fallen. Try to remove an dead or dying branches so that you create a healthy tree. These are not essential to the tree anymore.

Feeding Your Trees

Tree roots tend to grow more in the Fall. The system of roots stores energy for the tree to use later on. They use a lot of this energy in the spring when they start to flower and produce leaves once again. New growth in the spring can happen when the soil sustains nutrient levels and helping the production of roots in the tree. Supplemental feeding is very beneficial to younger and newly planted trees. However, not all trees need or demand fertilization. 

Complete cultural practices

Giving tree roots some added protection during the winter can help a lot. Consider remulching around your trees. This also helps with the moisture levels in the soil over the winter when the air is dry. Having 2-3 inches of composted mulch on top of where the roots are gives excellent protection. You may also want to add protective wraps on trees with thin bark or your recently planted trees. 

Water Consumption

The dry air and lack of rain can occur during the fall and early winter. This can take a toll on trees. Provide some irrigation to the roots to help them through this time of year. You should only water when temperatures are above 40-degree water around middle of the day so the roots have time to soak it in. Applying around 5 gallons of water per inch of the tree’s diameter will be enough when there is a lack of rain as winter approaches.

The Importance of Hiring a Professional Tree Service

There are certain tasks in your yard that are fine to DIY, but others should be left to professionals. Tree services that include stump grinding, tree removal, tree pruning, and tree trimming should be left to a tree company. What are some reasons to hire a professional tree service?

Experience and Knowledge

There are proper techniques for tree services. Damaging your trees or property is more likely to happen when you don’t have experience in tree services. Knowing the correct way to do these things will help keep your trees healthy and safe. Don’t take a chance and accidentally have your large tree fall on your roof. Leave removal and stump grinding to someone that knows about trees and has been working with them for years – such as us!

Safety

Working with trees is a dangerous task, especially when your yard is full of many big trees. There are other factors to consider when it comes to your property and what’s around it – power lines, wood that is decaying, and equipment. When you hire a professional tree service, they are licensed and equipped to handle trees of all kinds. You are better off not trying tree maintenance on your own. For the safety of you and everyone living in your home, please leave it to us!

Limitations

When you are looking to trim a taller tree than your home, how were you planning to do it? There aren’t ladders tall enough to reach the top of certain backyard trees, nor would it be safe to do on a ladder. At Dudley Tree & Crane, we have the equipment to reach heights that you wouldn’t be able to achieve on your own. We can get all of your tree services done quickly and efficiently without any limitations. 

Efficiency

If you want to be efficient with your tree services, hire a professional to do it all. If you need a tree removed and other trees trimmed, have them do everything. This is the most efficient way of using tree service companies. We are professionals, and we know just how to take care of everything. Our services are quick and easy.
