Denver Tree Service Offers Advice on Spring Tree Care

Now that spring has officially arrived, it’s the perfect time of year to tend to the trees on your property. At Root Tree Service, we recommend that you schedule tree service for your yard every spring to help ensure your trees are in good health after the winter. The winter months can be tough on trees, so tending to them in the spring just makes sense.

A professional tree service can check the soil of your trees as well as the bark, leaves, and blossoms, as applicable. They can also check the chemical balance of the soil around the roots of the trees and make recommendations about fertilizers and treatments. If trees suffered damage over the winter, a professional tree service could also recommend treatment.

Pruning Your Trees

Spring is a great time to trim your trees, and you can trim your non-blooming trees early in the season while the branches of still dormant. If you have trees that bloom, you should give them time to bloom first, then trim them after their bloom cycle. 

Always trim dead branches—regardless of the time of year. Dead branches are not only unsightly, but they are a hazard because they could fall on someone, on a nearby building, or on a car. Dead branches might also steal away the moisture that healthy branches need. Dead branches are also an ideal location for pests to congregate, which is always best to avoid.

If your trees and shrubs look messy or have grown unevenly, this is a great time to prune them for aesthetic reasons.

Adding Mulch

Mulch can promote healthy trees because it provides some protection for the roots. Mulch naturally puts nutrients into the soil over time and keeps moisture in the ground below. This can provide excellent growing conditions for trees. Mulch can also offer some protection from the growth of invasive weeds. It’s a good idea to add a couple of inches of fresh mulch around your trees every year. 

Watering Trees

Watering is a simple process for trees that are native to Colorado. But if you have nonnative trees, or if the state is going through a drought, you might need to do some additional watering—even during the winter. Watch for leaves that are wilted, as this can indicate there is not enough water. If leaves are wet to the touch, this could be an indicator that there is too much water. We are always happy to provide you with a suggested watering schedule.
