It's time to discuss how to take care of your prized trees during the winter as the days become shorter and the temperature drops. Trees require a little more care throughout the winter, just like humans do. Let's get started with some practical advice for making your green friends happy this winter.
1. Mulch 'Em Correctly:
Give your trees a warm mulch-covered foundation before winter arrives. The ideal amount of mulch is 2 to 4 inches. It serves as the roots' warm winter coat, shielding them from chilly conditions.
2. Hydration Is Important:
Trees require water even in the winter. Before the ground freezes, make sure they are properly hydrated. The roots benefit from deep watering by storing moisture for the dry winter months.
3. Pruning with Objective:
Light pruning is ideal in the winter. To stop dead or broken branches from falling and harming people, remove them. Don't go crazy, though; your tree still needs "arms and legs" to stand up and receive sunlight.
Today, we'll delve into the realm of tough, robust trees that thrive in challenging environments. Mother Nature has a way of giving us some incredible tales of survival. Let's learn about the top 5 toughest tree species that can withstand extreme weather.
Quercus Ilex (Holm Oak):
These hardy oaks are native to the Mediterranean region, where they must contend with scorching summers and a lack of water. Their evergreen leaves, which conserve energy and water, have allowed them to adapt.
The Holm Oak is your friend if you live somewhere with intense sun and little rainfall. Where other trees fail, it flourishes.
Pinus ponderosa (Ponderosa pine):
The Ponderosa Pine is a remarkable survivor, coming from the western United States. They can endure extremely hot and dry conditions.
They are fire-resistant thanks to their long needles and thick bark, which is a major benefit in areas prone to wildfires.
