1. Inspect your landscape.

You’re dreaming of that lush, green lawn you’ve admired in the photos of landscaping magazines and calendars. But remember: It’s important to look up, too. Check your trees for damage or warning signs; specifically insect infestations and diseases. Then, consult a professionally trained arborist to determine whether treatment regimens are necessary.

2. Prune dead, diseased or unsafe branches.

Pruning often results in some of the most successful tree care programs. Monitoring the structure of your trees’ canopies can encourage healthy growth—and result in plenty of shade.


3. Cable, brace or remove weak limbs.

It’s no secret severe summer storms are on their way. But before the winds roll in, you’ll want to help your trees’ stronger limbs from suffering damage when weaker branches fail and fall.
