Is Winter Weather Tree Care Important?
Yes, winter brings many challenges as trees face colder temperatures and reduced moisture availability. Without proper care, trees may experience winter burn, frost cracks, and other issues that compromise their health. Unhealthy trees are also more susceptible to diseases and pest infestations.
Even here in the Southeast, where winters can be milder but still pose risks, providing extra care for your trees during cold snaps is essential. Well-maintained trees not only withstand the cold but also contribute to the overall resilience of your landscape.

Winter Weather Tree Care Tips
- Proper Hydration: Water trees deeply before the ground freezes to ensure they enter winter well-hydrated. Be mindful not to overwater, as excess moisture during freezing temperatures can lead to root damage.
- Protective Mulching: Apply a 2 to 4-inch layer of mulch around the base of your trees to insulate the soil and shield roots from extreme cold. Mulching also helps retain moisture and prevents temperature fluctuations that can harm the roots.
- Windbreaks and Wraps: Install windbreaks or burlap wraps to shield vulnerable trees from harsh winter winds. Protecting trees from wind exposure reduces the risk of winter desiccation and damage.
- Pruning for Safety: Remove weak or dead branches before winter to prevent them from falling under the weight of snow or ice. Proper pruning also improves the structural integrity and health of the tree, reducing the risk of winter-related damage.
- Winter Pests Prevention: Inspect trees for signs of pests, as some may seek refuge in bark during winter.
- Proper Fertilization: Many property owners only fertilize during the warm season, but did you know that fertilizing before winter can give your trees the nutrients they need to stay healthy all winter? Learn more about how professional fertilization services can benefit your landscape.
