Fall is an important time for Whatcom County tree care. Winter is quickly approaching and your trees will need some help preparing for their dormant months. Whatcom Tree Service has been preparing trees for winter weather for years, and we can offer some helpful hints on things you can do to help your trees come back stronger and more beautiful than ever in the spring:

  • Give them plenty to drink. Fall is a great time to water your trees a little extra. Make sure the water is soaking down into the roots of your trees so they can store that water for the winter.
  • Give them plenty to eat. Fertilizing in the fall gives trees an extra dose of nutrients to carry them through the winter season. Use the right fertilizer for your tree and you’ll see amazing results in the spring.
  • Don’t trim until winter. Many people are tempted to trim their trees in the fall, but you’ll want to wait until your tree is completely dormant before trimming branches. Limit your fall clean up to dead branches and the area around the base of your tree.

Doing these things should help your tree thrive next spring! If you aren’t sure about a step or would like a professional team to do it for you, just give us a call.
