Winter is a great time of year to prune your trees. Since there aren’t any leaves, you can clearly see where work needs to be done and which branches need to be removed. It’s also helpful for being able to find frozen branches and branches that are liable to break off. If you aren’t comfortable with pruning trees or taking care of frozen branches, make sure you contact professional tree services, like the team at Nixa Lawn Service. Don’t put yourself in unnecessary danger when we can take care of everything for you.

Mulch and Fertilize
Mulching and fertilizing your trees before winter begins is essential to making sure they stay as healthy as possible throughout the cold months. The fertilizer will give them the nutrients they need through winter, and mulch has a variety of benefits. Mulch will not only keep the soil insulated from the temperature, but it will also help the tree retain moisture and nutrients. Make sure you follow the instructions for mulching and fertilizing carefully, otherwise you might do more harm than good. You’ll also want to make sure to water your trees until the temperature gets cold enough to freeze the ground. Again, if you’re unsure of the proper methods to mulch and fertilize your trees, you can always call upon the professional tree services from Nixa Lawn Care.
Keep Animals Away
Rodents like to gnaw on tree bark, so you want to make sure you’re properly protecting your trees from them. You can keep them away with natural repellants, or by wrapping the bottom of the tree with a layer of chicken wire. This makes sure that the tree isn’t smothered and still gets the sunlight and nutrients it needs while deterring rodents from using it as a chew toy.
