Warm Weather Tree Care Tips
The tree care experts at AKA Tree Service have some tips that will help keep your landscape happy and healthy during summer weather:
- Water Thoroughly but Don’t Overwater: Water deeply to the root zone. The goal is to give the tree a lot of water when you water, not to water often. Watering too often can make them susceptible to pest infestation and disease. Overwatering can also lead to fungal problems. When the soil doesn’t dry out, fungi can establish themselves. These fungi kill roots, which prevents a tree from gathering water and nutrients.
- Strategic Plant Placement: Knowing your property’s sun expectations should help inform tree placement. Sun, soil quality, and wind exposure all play a big part in the life and longevity of your plants and trees. Keep an eye out for “cupping” (leaf rolling), sunburnt leaf edges, dead or falling leaves, or little to no growth. These are all signs your plants are struggling and need tree care services.
- Avoid Overcrowding: If your plants are too close together, they compete for resources. When planning your landscape, consider the size of your trees in full maturity.
- Mulch: Mulching is a highly effective strategy against drought. Applying a 1 to 2-inch layer of mulch around your plants and trees helps to cool the soil, prevent water loss, and act as a weed barrier.

Is Warm Weather Tree Care Important?
During the summer, trees naturally receive less moisture than they do during other seasons. They’re adapted to survive during these dry times, but their systems become strained the hotter and drier it is. Too much hot, dry weather can lead to nutrient deficiency, stunted growth, dying leaves, and limbs, and leave a tree susceptible to pests and diseases.
We’ve always had hot summers here in the southeast, but now more and more, those hot drought conditions are starting to bring with them wildfires. Trees that are dried out and unhealthy are vulnerable to wildfires.
