  1. Prune & Trim – Don’t ignore dead and broken branches on your trees and shrubs.  They are future breeding grounds for disease and pests.
  2. Monitor for Pests – It is important that you monitor your landscape for early signs of pests.  The Spring is when many common pests take hold.
  3. Beware of Brown Leaves – Spring is when things get greener…if it is turning brown or curling up, you may have a problem.
  4. Fix Winter Damage – Storms, ice and cold may have damaged some of your trees.  Make sure to inspect your trees for signs of damage and repair it before it becomes fatal.
  5. Fertilize – Spring is a time to fertilize your trees, shrubs & plants.
  6. Clear the Base – Be sure to clear away old mulch and debris that may have piled up around the base of your trees and shrubs over the winter.
  7. Water When Dry – If it is a dry Spring, be sure to water your landscape.
  8. Don’t Prune Prunes – Don’t prune or trim your fruit trees in the Spring.
  9. Get an Inspection – Spring is the time when you should call us out to do a landscape inspection.
  10.
