Protecting Your Trees and Shrubs from the Harsh Winter Weather

Gallivan Corporation - Tuesday, December 22, 2015


There is more to wrap this season than just presents.

Before wrapping your holiday presents this year, be sure to wrap your trees and shrubs. Protecting your trees and shrubs in burlap from the harsh winter weather is very important as the cold weather approaches. Some of the benefits include:

  • Helps reduce moisture loss
  • Helps keep deer and other animals away
  • Helps protect from ice damage
  • Helps protect from salt damage

Specific species of trees need this protection, therefore it is beneficial to have a team of professionals handle this job for you, eliminating extra time and work on your end.

Hard Pruning

During this time of year, it is also recommended to hard prune your trees and shrubs during the early winter months to increase visual appearance with other landscape materials and to resize and reshape them. Hard pruning is also very important for added security. This time of year is best to tackle this project because the risk for insects and spreading of disease is greatly reduced. Currently diseased trees also benefit from being pruned because disease spores are not present and will not spread.

Experience and knowledge is essential when it comes to properly caring for your trees and shrubs during the winter. Contact the professionals at Gallivan Corporation to take care of it for you!
