Tree Care Tips

Crown Point Clippers, Inc.

To avoid malnutrition, be sure to give your trees an adequate amount of micronutrients, such as magnesium sulfate, limestone, gypsum, iron, and zinc. However, trees need very limited amounts of these compounds, and an overabundance can be harmful.

Frost damage can be prevented if your tree’s leaves stay hydrated during a period of severe cold. Additionally, frequent watering and extremely light fertilization in anticipation of a cold night can also “harden” the cells of certain plants.

Don’t top trees. Topping is a non-standard pruning procedure where larger trees are cut back to pre-determined size. It is also known as hat-racking or de-horning. Topping was a traditional pruning method that was considered an acceptable method years ago. Research has shown that topped trees actually grow more over a five year period when compared to trees that were pruned correctly. As a result, there is a greater expense for the consumer and no savings over the long run.

Over watering or poor drainage can cause root rot in your trees. Fungicides or manganese treatments can be effective as treatments or preventative measures.

Selecting a Tree. Always ask these important questions where you purchase the tree and consider the following factors: hardiness in heat or cold, mature height and spread, growth rate, cleanliness, type of root system, moisture and fertilizer requirements, availability, location of utilities above and below ground, disease and insect problems, roads, walkways, security lights, view corridors.
