We may be in the process of slopping through the middle of winter in Winona, MN, but the oddly warm temperatures these last few weeks have planted images of a swiftly approaching spring in everyone's mind. The slush has gotten slushier, the drifts have gotten dirtier, and for more than an hour a day, the sun has been fully visible. This is not only exciting for the population of Minnesotans who treat winter as forced hibernation time, but it's also wonderful news for tree owners and the tree care experts at Maier Tree and Lawn. With spring finally on the horizon, do you have your seasonal tree care plan in place?
With more winter on the horizon, we aren't out of the woods yet, but having a tree health plan in place early is a great way to ensure that your trees thrive for another full year. If you can, take advantage of the mid-January melt and check your trees for any obvious winter damage. Since winter tree care is often fairly hands off, other than pruning, it's good to get back into the habit before the snow takes off for good. If you can see a problem or are concerned, don't be afraid to contact a tree health professional for a consultation. Trees may be dormant in the winter, but that doesn't mean nothing can be done for them.
Spring is a great time to consider planting more trees on your property as well, so take a little time during the latter part of winter to research and plan if you'd like to expand your tree family. You don't necessarily need to write an essay on what you'd like in a new tree, but spending a day or two looking into different kinds of trees and tree care will only help you when the seasons do change.
