Tree care is certainly not limited to any specific season. Rather it’s something to be taken into account at all times of the year to ensure optimal tree health in your Lake Oswego, OR landscape. With every new season, there is a different focus in tree care maintenance. While fall is an excellent time to prepare trees for the upcoming winter, spring is the time to ensure your trees are healthy just in time for peak growth season. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following spring services we offer to help your trees thrive and achieve optimal growth this season.
Repair Winter Damage
During the winter, low temperatures combined with frost, snow, and heavy winds can take its toll on your trees. Before delicate new buds start to sprout, a certified arborist can clear away dead or broken branches to allow new leaves better access to sunlight while ensuring healthier spring growth. A certified arborist will also make sure any winter damage will not be exacerbated by disease, fungus or insects during the growth and healing season.
Prevent Spring Pests
The trees, plants, and grass in your landscape aren’t the only things bursting with new life this season. Fungal spores and insects that have been dormant throughout the winter are now active and flourishing, making untreated winter wounds particularly vulnerable to disease and unwanted infestations. A certified arborist will aid you with preventative tree care services to treat fungal or insect damage to your trees while they’re in this vulnerable post-winter state.
Ensure Optimal Growth
Tree pruning is one of the best ways to ensure optimal spring growth. Not only is this an opportunity to remove dead or damaged limbs and branches, it will promote healthy and stable growth for a tree throughout the spring and summer months. If tree pruning is done before springtime growth begins, it allows a tree time to heal and recover lost nutrients and energy resources. Tree pruning is also a great way to shape a tree and keep it structurally stable for future growth while ensuring it doesn’t grow too close to nearby structures or power lines.
Tree Removal Services
Tree removal is always a last resort service and not a primary solution to dealing with winter damaged trees. In fact, most trees that sustain damage from the previous season can still recover when handled correctly. However, there are times when a tree is severely damaged and restoring it is virtually impossible. At times like these when the structural integrity threatens the safety of your loved ones or nearby structures, tree removal is the only option.
