Monthly Tree Reminders: February


February

  • On sunny, warm days, check the soil moisture 4-6” deep around your trees’ root zones to see if they need winter watering, especially if there has been inadequate rain or snow. Water when the temperatures are above freezing and the ground is not frozen solid.

  • Gently remove heavy snow and ice from branches with an upward sweep of a broom or rake to prevent branches from breaking under the weight.

  • Continue winter pruning except on the trees that “bleed” (maple, elm, aspen, birch) until the temperatures are above freezing.
