Your most valuable landscape assets
Did you know that beautiful, healthy trees can boost your property’s value by 5 to 20%? Trees are often your landscape’s most valuable assets and increase in value as they grow and mature. They provide dramatic curb appeal and can help conserve energy by providing shade in summer and protection from winter winds. Healthy trees can last a lifetime, so it makes sense to consult a trained and certified arborist for tree care to keep them protected and thriving.
Prune for safety, health and beauty
Before harsher winter weather arrives, make sure you have a specialist look at your trees. Early fall is a great time to diagnose problems and take action because the leaves are still on the trees, making it easier to identify which limbs are dead and which are healthy. Pruning is important to protect trees, people, and surrounding structures from limbs breaking off during windy conditions and severe or icy storms. Pruning done by tree care experts will remove fall risk and improve the trees’ overall look and health.
Schedule a checkup for pests or disease
A routine check up on your trees is necessary to make sure they don’t fall prey to pests or disease. Fungus can also kill established, healthy plants if not caught in time. Do you have at-risk trees? Our experienced, certified arborists can diagnose and prescribe treatments as needed. A deep root or foliar fertilizer may be all it would take to put them back on the mend!
When your irrigation system is winterized this season, make sure you have a watering plan to get your trees the moisture they need. We often forget about watering trees during the cooler seasons since other plants’ watering requirements drop off. It can be tricky to determine how to water without freezing during cold weather, so ask one of our experts for help.
It’s been said that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today. Even if you don’t have trees yet, remember that fall is the perfect time to plant them. Consult a Terry’s Landscape expert to determine what would be best and most beautiful in your landscape.
