In our last blog, we listed some tree care tips to prepare you for spring. These tips were mostly related to inspecting your trees and trying to identify any potentially problematic issues. This is an important part of spring tree care, but it is certainly not the full extent of it. In today’s blog, we at Pacifique Tree Care are going to build on this previous blog and offer a brief guide to spring tree care.

Below are some steps to include in your spring tree care.
To maximize the full potential of the growing season, you want to start off with some spring cleaning. Remove any decorations you’ve used to adorn your trees. Also, be sure to remove any protective winter wraps you placed around trunks. After these steps have been completed, rake up all leaves, twigs, and debris that has gathered under trees. This clean up is especially important for trees that are susceptible to fungal infections.
Prune Dead Branches
Tree pruning is an important part of overall tree health, and spring is the perfect time to remove dead or dying branches that have suffered frost damage. Although it is best to prune during the winter when trees are dormant, spring is still a good time to remove dead, damaged, or broken branches. If you are unsure about the health of a branch, you can wait until leaves start to bloom, or you can contact your go-to Calgary tree service provider, Pacifique Tree Care.
Adding an appropriate layer of mulch can help secure organic matter beneath the soil’s surface, and it can help control weeds and help the soil retain moisture—two conditions that are crucial to plant growth.
Plant New Trees
We are always advocates of planting new trees. Spring can be the perfect time to put a new tree in the ground. Trees play an integral role on this planet, and they can be beneficial economically, socially, and environmentally. If you need help welcoming a new tree to Calgary, contact us! We offer tree planting services and can ensure that your tree is planted properly and in a way that will ensure a long, healthy life.
Water and Fertilize
Before your trees or shrubs enter the peak summer growing season, it is important to give them the nutrients they need. Replacing lost nutrients will help improve the tree’s or plant’s resistance to the damage that can be caused by disease, weather, and insects. If you need help determining how much fertilizer or water to apply, contact us!
