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:
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!
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.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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!
