In many areas of the country, the weather has cooled and the leaves have fallen, andPicture of a tree in winter. the trees are now bare. Tree experts say now is the perfect time to go outside and check the health of a property’s trees. 

“Think of winterizing as preparation for spring,” says David Horvath, sales arborist in Chicago for The Davey Tree Expert Company. “Some plants require extra protection from harsh conditions and salt.” 

Horvath says the better you care for your landscape in the winter, the less you’ll have to do to prepare for the spring. Trees will emerge healthier and perform better when they awaken from dormancy. On the flip side, if plants enter winter stressed, their problems will only worsen come springtime.
