Preventing Winter Tree Problems with Maintenance

While Mature trees typically fare well through Texas winters, it’s important to ensure they are watered with a slow soak from the base of the trunk to the outer edges of the tree canopy’s branches when the temperature is above 40.

Smaller immature trees require more care all year, but especially in winter. Ensure young trees are wrapped adequately to insulate them and prevent them from freezing before a hard freeze. They also need to be watered more often than mature trees during the winter, but apply a slow soak on warm, sunny winter days we are lucky enough to enjoy here in the lone star state.
