Fall/Winter Tree Care Benefits

Temperatures are finally headed downward and so is the cost to take care of all your trimming and removal needs! Fall and winter are great times to trim many of our Arizona tree species. It is also a beautiful time to enjoy the outdoors and spend time in your yard. Let us help you make this experience more enjoyable by sprucing up those overgrown and unsightly trees.

Some of the benefits of fall and winter pruning are:

1. It’s less stressful to have your trees trimmed during these cooler months. Trees that need more aggressive thinning or reduction can be safely pruned without worrying about sunburn from the intense summer sun.

2. The aesthetic benefits will last longer. Trees pruned during this time “hold” their pruned shape as their growth rate slows and they become more dormant in the cooler months.

3. Demand for tree services decrease in the fall and winter. If you’ve been putting off tree trimming or tree removal projects, now is the time to take advantage of lower pricing for these services.

4. Our turn-around time to schedule your job is shorter than at other times of the year.

5. Pine trees that are pruned in fall and early winter will ooze less sap, reducing the mess.

To take advantage of all of these benefits call us today. We will send out one of our Certified Arborists to see how we can protect and enhance your tree investment. We promise top quality tree care service at competitive prices.

Fall Fertilization?

Should I fertilize my trees, and if so when?

If you have Elm, Ash, Bottle, Eucalyptus, Queen Palms and many other species of trees, the fall is a great time to have them fertilized.
While soil in the Phoenix area often has sufficient levels of essential plant nutrients such as iron, zinc and other trace nutrients, our soil pH is typically quite high. This makes these essential plant nutrients unavailable. Deep Root Fertilization provides a way for trees to receive the nutrients they need.

There are many kinds of fertilizers. We recommend and use an extended- release nitrogen that breaks down slowly and provides sustained plant nutrition over as long as nine months. This also prevents fertilizer burn, and reduces the labor costs of multiple applications. If you do not use a slow release fertilizer you will usually need to fertilize several times per year. Typically we recommend Root Feeding, or injecting fertilizer into the ground throughout the root system. The best time to do this is usually February – March. If your trees are struggling from nutrient deficiencies, it often makes sense to fertilize them again in the Fall. In our mild winter climate, trees experience a longer growing season than in colder climates. Fertilizing in the fall can lead to more vigorous root growth throughout the cooler months. This enables trees to get a better start on their spring growth.

So, if you have not fertilized your trees this year, or if you did not use a slow release fertilizer, or have concerns about the health of any of your trees, please call us to assess your trees and provide you with fertilization recommendations.

There is no charge for fertilization proposals and during the month of September we are offering 20% off all fertilization orders if you mention you read about this special on our website.
