Winter tree health in Kansas City is just as important as it is during the rest of the year. Whether you have oaks or pines, maples or willows, the long winter months can tax their root systems to the limits. The following are some tips you can use whether your trees are planted in a residential or commercial setting.

  1. Have a certified arborist inspect your trees. They can determine whether any species specific diseases are present, and recommend a course of action to rectify any existing health problems.
  2. Remove fallen leaves, branches, and debris from around the tree. This will help ensure soil health and also reduce the risk of infection from disease or pest infestation.
  3. Prune trees. This will not only have a positive aesthetic effect, it will also reduce the possibility of collapse from ice/snow build up.
  4. Look for evidence of grazing. Deer and other animals tend to do more damage to trees in the wintertime. If grazing is occurring, preventative measures can eliminate this.
