  • Why Mulching in March is Magnificent!

    Spring is an ideal time to start mulching your yard. Mulch is the best protection you can give your trees and shrubs before they face the summer heat. At 770-Tree-Guy, we are so passionate about mulching that we have a mulch madness promotion in March and make our own organic mulch year-round. You will be amazed at the difference simply adding mulch really makes in your yard.


    The Benefits of Mulch:

    •   Protecting Your Soil—Mulch provides a layer of insulation to prevent your soil from being scorched by the blazing heat and becoming depleted of nutrients. During the cold season, mulch could help lock in warmth. Mulch minimizes the impact of temperature swings on your soil. Protected soil will better support the health of your trees and plants.
    •   Retaining Moisture—Mulch can slow down the evaporation process that causes your soil to become dry. Water can penetrate your soil and replenish your tree roots as it needs to. Watering your yard is best in the morning considering evaporation, but the mulch will help your soil hold on to its moisture.
    •   Nourishing Your Yard—Mulch breaks down gradually, infusing your soil with helpful nutrients. Those nutrients will be soaked up through your trees’ roots and lead to healthier trees. Your trees and shrubs will be healthy and look their best when they are being properly fed.
    •   Minimizing Soil Compaction—Mulch can help reduce soil compaction which naturally occurs during hard rains. When your soil becomes compacted, the needed air and moisture cannot be delivered properly to your trees’ root systems. Mulch makes a great umbrella for your soil.
    •   Controlling Weeds—Mulch interferes with weeds’ germination cycle and minimizes the population of weeds able to grow beneath your trees. Weeds look unsightly beneath your trees and they can compete for resources within your soil. If a weed does manage to grow through your mulch, they are easy to spot and pull.
    •   Improving Your Yard’s Aesthetics—Mulch looks clean and well-kept in your planting beds. Your yard will instantly look more manicured with the addition of mulch. There are a couple colors of mulch available so you can even choose one to compliment your house and yard specifically.


    The Basics of Mulching:

    With mulch, a little can go a long way. Your mulch only needs to be about 3 inches deep. Deeper mulch could welcome rot, disease, or pest problems. Create your planting bed extending in a 3-6 foot diameter around the tree to protect the roots. Create a donut shaped gap around the base of the tree to avoid piling mulch around the tree trunk. Piling up mulch around your tree trunk can encourage moisture and pests on your tree trunk, which negates the benefits of using the mulch. Use a good quality organic mulch to ensure that your tree gets the ideal nutrients. We stand behind the quality of our fully recycled organic mulch. We have black, brown, red, and natural color varieties available to suit your yard’s color scheme.

    If you are interested in mulching this March, reach out to 770-Tree-Guy. We offer mulch services by our team or you can purchase our quality mulch and do it yourself. Your plants will thank you, especially when the summer heat comes!

  • How to Prepare Your Trees for Spring

    Your trees looking their best in the spring does not happen overnight or by accident. While the weather is still cool, you can start getting prepared. The best time to prepare your trees for the upcoming growing season is right before spring starts, but after the worst of winter has passed. Our arborists at 770-Tree-Guy have compiled a list of tips to help your trees thrive this spring.

    Thriving Trees Checklist:

    •       Start with Tree Inspection—Before you begin caring for your yard, evaluate the health of your trees. Look for signs of winter damage or disease. When your trees are still bare from winter, it is much easier to spot these problems. If your tree does have damage or disease, you may be able to prune the issue away. We are standing by to help if you need a tree doctor’s wisdom.
    •       Lose the Limbs, Leaves, and Debris—Pruning while it is still cold out is ideal. Your trees are at greater risk of pests and diseases if you wait until trees are already in bloom. Any parts of your tree that are dead, diseased, damaged, or dangerous should be addressed now. If you are not comfortable with DIY pruning, you can leave it to our experts instead.
    •       Fertilize and “Feed”—Growing is hard work and trees need the right sustenance to be able to grow properly. Make sure your soil is fertilized and chock full of the nutrients that your trees will need to flourish. The winter season can deplete them of nutrients, so make sure to compensate for it. A healthy tree fueled with the right nutrients will be able to grow and fight off pests and diseases more effectively. In addition to fertilizer, check to make sure that your trees will be able to get the water they need as well.
    •       Prevent Pests with Pest (bug and critter) Control—Pests like warm weather so the spring is one of their favorite seasons. If you see evidence of pests around your trees already, now is the time to fight back. Reach out to our team for help!
    •       Give Your Trees Some Mulch—Mulch is a magical thing for your trees when used properly. You can lock in the nutrients and moisture that your plants need, while protecting the roots from the heat of the sun. As mulch breaks down, the mulch infuses the soil with nutrients to continually supply your trees. Choose a quality organic mulch and do not build it up more than 3 inches around the base of your tree. Too much mulch will negate the benefits and can actually hurt your tree. If you need mulch, consider our organic mulch. The mulch we make is fully organic and recycled. We also offer a variety of colors to fit your landscaping vision.

    If you are ready for a thriving spring season for your trees, give us a call for a complete tree health assessment! 770-Tree-Guy can help your trees reach their true potential.

  • Why Winter Pruning is Best

    Working in your yard in a winter wonderland may seem strange. In fact, many homeowners stop doing yard work after the weather drops below 50. Before you store away your yard tools, consider doing some winter pruning. Surprisingly, the winter season is the best time for pruning most trees. If you are unsure about winter pruning, consider these strong reasons for winter pruning from our tree experts at 770-Tree-Guy:

    1.   You Can See The Branches Better.

    Your trees will have fewer leaves to get in the way of your pruning. You will be able to see the shape and structure of the tree more effectively than when your tree has a cover of leaves during the other seasons. Additionally, you can spot disease and damage more easily since they cannot hide behind a canopy of leaves. Grab your parka and head out to prune your trees. Bundling up is worth it for a far simpler pruning job.

    1.   Your Trees are Dormant in Winter.

    During the warmer months, your trees are putting in the extra effort to grow and produce. Your trees are doing a plant version of hibernation right now, so winter is ideal for pruning. While your trees are resting, they can easily recover from pruning. Pruning in winter keeps your trees from having to multitask and try to grow and heal at the same time.  

    1.   This is the Off Season for Plant Diseases.

    Winter is the worst season for sickness for people, but trees are doing great. They are resting up and most of their disease and pest problems are months away. The pests, fungi, and bacteria which trouble trees much prefer a warm climate. One of the greatest concerns when pruning is that pests will enter through the trees’ pruning wounds. Therefore, winter is optimal because the pests are much less likely to be a problem.

    1.     Your Trees Will Be in a Better Place for The Spring.

    Pruning stimulates growth in trees throughout the spring months. By removing dead, diseased, and deformed branches, you are helping the tree refocus its energy on the healthy branches. You will be amazed how your tree will flourish when it is not overworked supplying the healthy and unhealthy branches at once.

    Although most trees benefit from winter pruning, there are exceptions to be aware of. If your tree flowers in spring, you should prune them after their blooms fade. Those flowering trees will already have buds in place by winter, so pruning would actually hinder them. If you are unsure about whether your tree should be pruned, reach out to our arborists at 770-Tree-Guy. We can help!
