Winter Damage Prevention

Prevention is worth the time, money, and worries of future tree problems. Fertilizing your trees is one important step to make your tree strong from within, but animals feeding on bark and bark damage from high winters subject your tree to potential spring/summer complications.
Staking your new tree is important to make sure your tree gets a great, stable start and to ensure your tree stays straight. High winds, large snow falls, and ice can make a once straight tree fall.

Putting bark guards around the base of your tree discourages animals from feeding on the bark during harsh winters.

Wrapping your tree with tree wrap is important to help your tree during stressful weather and to ensure your tree stays healthy.
