All around you, people are celebrating the New Year. Many people are setting new goals, ambitions, and dreams, which we affectionately refer to as New Year’s Resolutions. And while you might be attempting to lose weight or start a new exercise regimen, the health of the trees on your property is something else you should consider. After all, they’re living beings, too.
The holiday season creates large amounts of stress, not to mention several activities that are time-consuming. You might have neglected some of the items in your yard that enhance curb appeal. Now that you have some free time, take a look at the shape of your yard. Does it look good? Organizing it through an arborist or landscaping service can make all the difference between a well-manicured front lawn and an unmitigated disaster.
A well-manicured tree is a healthy tree. A good way to ensure the health of the trees in your yard is by doing some routine pruning. Removing the dead twigs and watering them thoroughly can help them maintain their health. If they’re looking worse for wear, consider calling in a tree company to take a closer look. They can assess the situation and either provide a treatment to nurse it back to health or recommend extraction and removal.
During the holiday season, you more than likely had quite a bit on your plate to deal with. Understandable. Just like you needed to take some much-needed personal time to clear the stress from your plate and rejuvenate, your trees do as well. The sudden changes in the seasons can be stressful for them, and there’s always the possibility that an infestation could be on the way. If you live in an area that has snowfall or temperatures that drop below freezing, you might want to consider getting them properly secured.
There are many things to look forward to in the upcoming new year. And now that the holiday season has finally come to an end, safeguarding the trees on your property can provide you with some much-needed peace of mind.
