In this Public News Service article, Jay Judd, district manager of Davey's East Denver office, discusses tips and best practices for keeping trees healthy during the summer. 

Posted: June 24, 2024

With the heat of summer pouring into Colorado, tree experts are offering tips for keeping our shade-producing friends in good health now, and throughout the year. 

Jay Judd, district manager for the Davey Tree Expert Company, which serves the Denver metro area, said now is a good time to check trees near your home, especially after recent severe weather.

"It's good to just look up and assess the tree," Judd explained. "See if you have anything broken in there, or any major dead branches that are really evident now that the trees have leafed out. You could have some hazards."

Clean up and prune any unsafe, broken or hanging branches you can reach from ground level. Judd recommended higher branches should be handled by a certified arborist. Spring is also a great time to plant new trees and shrubs. The Colorado Tree Coalition has a free guide available online to help you choose the right tree for the right location.
