Arborists’ Springtime Duties
Our Arborists’ Springtime Duties Yield Great Summertime Results
Petalon Landscape Managment’s certified arborists know that their hard work during spring results in healthy, thriving trees when the weather turns warm.
Springtime is when we assess clients’ trees for signs of winter damage and chart a course for ongoing care and maintenance. Although winters in California are typically mild, our professional arborists recommend a careful inspection of all the trees on your property in order to avoid costly problems such as pest infestations later on.
Here are several steps Petalon’s knowledgable arborists take during spring months to ensure your trees are always strong and beautiful:
- We remove fallen branches, leaves and other debris for aesthetic reasons and to allow moisture to reach deep roots.
- New plantings. Spring is the ideal time to plant new trees or transplant existing trees to better locations. Our arborists have the expertise to help you choose the best trees for your property, and then plant them properly so that they root quickly and maximize growth potential. We can help you choose from a variety of species, including those that require little water or drop few leaves.
- Pruning is best done in late fall or winter, but sometimes a springtime prune before buds form is appropriate, especially if branches have been damaged by winter wind or frost.
- Petalon skillfully shapes trees to create a natural “crowned’ appearance. Our crowning methods prevent overgrowth and minimize stress to your trees.
- Spring Fertilization. Slow-release fertilizers deliver nutrients to each tree. In some cases, trees require deep-root fertilization for best results.
