Tree Service: Spring Tree Care Checklist

1. Inspect trees and shrubs

When melting snow and rainfall occur simultaneously, your landscape may encounter standing water and/or flood damage. Pay close attention to critical risk trees and consult a professionally-trained arborist to determine whether removal and/or pest and disease treatments are necessary.

2. Prune dead branches.

Want healthy trees? Proper pruning protects your green assets from the unsafe branches that suffered damage from winter weather. Your local Centreville arborist may recommend cabling and bracing, to reduce strain and stress damage from high winds, or lightning protection for future spring and summer storms.

3. Plant new trees.

Spread your love for trees this spring. Genesis Tree Service shares several resources you need for proper planting.

4. Mulch your landscape.

Mulch secures the organic matter trees need beneath the soil surface. Conserve soil moisture and control weeds with proper mulching techniques.

5. Fertilize plants.

Before your trees and shrubs enter peak growing season, apply a slow-release fertilizer to not only replace nutrients, but also to improve plants’ resistance to damage from diseases, insects and stressful weather.
