Welcome, dear readers, to the June edition of our blog. As the summer season peels back the covers of spring, we at New Horizons Tree Service are pleased to bring you the latest updates from our vibrant world of trees. This month, we discuss the importance of proper summer care, new trends in arboriculture, and how our team continues to dedicate themselves to keeping your trees healthy and landscapes beautiful.
Summer Care For Your Trees
As the mercury rises, our trees need extra attention and care. Heat stress can significantly impact the health of your green friends, affecting their growth and vibrancy. The key to summer tree care lies in watering, mulching, and pruning.
Watering during summer should be more frequent and deeper to compensate for the increased evaporation rates. But remember, watering should be done early in the morning or late evening to minimize evaporation and ensure that the water reaches the tree roots.
Mulching is another important task. A good layer of mulch acts like a natural insulator, maintaining soil temperature and retaining moisture. It also helps to control weed growth, which competes with your tree for essential nutrients.
Pruning, our specialty at New Horizons, is a crucial summer care activity. It promotes tree health by removing dead or diseased branches and allows for better air circulation and sunlight penetration, reducing the chances of pest infestations and disease outbreaks.
Exploring New Trends in Arboriculture
Planting Native Species: There's a growing interest in planting indigenous tree species that are more adapted to local conditions and more resilient to local pests and diseases. Native trees like the Southern Magnolia, Live Oak, and Bald Cypress are being favored.
