Monthly Tree Reminders: October


  • Plant trees before the ground freezes!

  • Place a 4-inch layer of mulch a few inches away from the trunk to keep soil temperatures constant throughout the year, to retain soil moisture and to eliminate competitive weeds.

  • Continue regular watering of newly planted trees until the ground freezes.

  • Water mature deciduous and conifer trees if the ground is dry 4-6” down.

  • Prune dead, dying, damaged and diseased branches while they are still identifiable.
