THE 3 BEST MAINTENANCE PRACTICES FOR TREES IN MADISON, AL

The environment of the Madison area accommodates the planting of a wide variety of landscape trees. While certain tree species will require specific tree care treatments to maintain optimum health, there are three tree care practices that should be high on the list of all Madison, AL tree owners.

Pruning Deadwood From Landscape Trees

Keeping your trees free of deadwood keeps them both healthy and safe. From a health standpoint dead tree branches can be an entry point for decay fungi to enter the main trunk of your tree. This can result in trunk cavities which can structurally weaken your tree.

Large, dead tree branches are not only a health hazard for your tree, but they are a safety hazard for you or any visitors on your property. Tree pruning arborists in Madison use bucket trucks or can climb large trees to prune out dead tree branches. With the long growing season in Madison proper tree pruning cuts will heal over quickly and your trees will be beautiful as well as safe.

Tree Fertilization

The red clay soil of Madison isn't the best growing medium for all the different tree species that are planted by landscapers or sold in local tree nurseries. A regular tree fertilization program can help your trees produce better foliage and develop a stronger root system. Tree fertilization in Madison can be done in the spring or fall.

Mulching Around Trees

Putting mulch around trees in Madison serves two main purposes. Mulching helps regulate temperature extremes and will help retain soil moisture. Both of these benefits results in a stronger root system for your trees. The most common mulches used in Madison are wood chip mulch or pine straw mulch. One caution when mulching your trees is to make sure to keep the mulch from building up on the trunk of your tree. There should be a little space between the mulch and the tree trunk.
