It is easy to take your trees for granted when they are healthy and flourishing. However, without the proper care, your trees could succumb to disease, pests, or drought and eventually die off. To have healthier trees that look great and remain strong for years, enlist the help of a Tucson landscaping service. The professionals will inspect your trees for signs of damage, rot, and pests that could affect your property. When you have unhealthy trees, there is a greater risk of branches breaking and falling, potentially injuring those below. Read on for helpful tips on having healthy trees.
Proper nutrition isn’t just important for humans. Trees need to have a healthy diet, as well, full of micronutrients such as limestone, iron, and zinc. If you are unsure of which or how many micronutrients your trees need, consult with a certified arborist at a landscaping company. Every type of tree has different needs, and those needs may vary depending on the nutrient level of the soil in which they live. Too many nutrients can be just as harmful as too few, so work with the professionals to determine the proper diet for your trees.
Though many people think of Tucson as being hot and dry for most of the year, those who live here know that it can get downright cold in the winter. By keeping your trees well hydrated during cold spells, you may be able to help prevent frost damage. Watering and fertilizing your trees properly before the cold hits can also make the cells inside certain plants more resistant to frost damage.
It may be tempting to water your trees often and with gusto here in Tucson. However, too much watering or watering without the proper drainage can end up doing more harm than good. Excess water may cause tree roots to rot, so investigate your irrigation options from your landscaping company.
