While trees love branching out in the summer sun, too much fun in the sun can stress them out and make them sick. These summer tree care suggestions will go a long way towards keeping them healthy and vibrant this season.
First, make sure your trees get plenty of water. This is especially true if you’re not receiving any rain. Keep an eye out for wilting and be sure to check the soil around your trees to make sure it’s not too dry.
You will also want to watch the leaf color. If you’re noticing discoloration or dead leaves, it could mean the tree needs a little fertilizer. If you do add fertilizer, make sure to spread it evenly around the tree.
Lastly, be sure to keep trees trimmed properly. This will help prevent the bow from breaking and crashing down, and it will also help protect the tree from diseases such as blight, as well as insect infestations and other problems.
