Spring Tree Checklist

Spring is the perfect time to take care of your trees and set them up for a healthy growing season! These simple steps will help ensure that your trees stay healthy, provide shade, and produce fruit for your family this year.

Z

Assess your tree’s overall health.

  • Inspect for dead limbs, frostbite, or lesions on the leaves.
  • Prune away any dead, damaged, or diseased limbs.
Z

Make sure your trees are well watered.

  • Check the moisture level of the soil several inches below the surface once a week. The soil should be damp but not wet.
  • Inspect any irrigation systems for leaks or clogs.
  • Use approximately 10 gallons of water for each inch of the tree’s trunk diameter.
Z

Check your mulch and replace if needed.

  • Use your mulch to conserve moisture. Keep the soil covered with 3-5 inches of mulch, starting a few inches from the trunk and getting thicker toward the outer edge. Placing too much mulch directly against the trunk can cause the wood to rot over time.
Z

Remove weeds and debris from around the trunk.

  • Weeds compete with trees for water and nutrients, so take care to remove them.
