Fall tree care and maintenance is done to protect trees as well as shrubs from severe storms, cold and harsh winds during winter months.

Proper fall tree care also leads to healthy growth of trees in the spring. In this blog, we’ll provide the fall tree care checklist and fall tree care tips to help you get your trees ready for the winter season.

Fall Tree Pruning and Removals

Fall Tree Pruning and RemovalsHarsh winds, snow and ice can cause trees to fall down in winter. Preparing your trees for stormy weather ahead of time will help you prevent this type of problems from happening.

Fall is the right time to remove critical risk trees and tree branches. So, tree pruning and removals have to be a key part of your fall tree care and maintenance program.

Ask highly skilled arborists in Toronto to inspect all of trees in your property in the fall. Dead trees, dying trees as well as tree branches that can fall down during the winter storms need to be removed.

Watering Trees in the Fall

Watering is essential for keeping trees and shrubs healthy. Watering in the fall helps trees as well as shrubs build their root mass and get ready for winter droughts. Watering is particularly important for newly planted trees and shrubs. It also makes sense to hydrate trees and shrubs which have suffered from drought stress.

Fall Tree Fertilization

Fall Tree FertilizationPoor soil negatively affects the health of trees. Soil tends to lose its nutrients during cold winter and hot summer. That’s the reason why trees need to be fertilized in the fall.

Fall tree fertilization provides soil with all the necessary nutrients and promotes healthy growth of trees. Fertilization is something that needs to be done to make trees more resistant to insect pests, diseases and different types of environmental stresses.

Fall Tree Pest Control

Fall is the time to inspect trees and treat bugs and diseases. Among the tree insect pests that need to be treated in Toronto in the fall are: Anthracnose, Apple Scab, Birch Skeletonizer, Boxelder Bug, Mountain Ash Sawfly, Northern Pine Weevil, Scleroderris Canker, Cooley Spruce Gall Adelgid, Walnut Caterpillar, Poplar-and-Willow Borer, Eastern Spruce Gall Adelgid, Locust Twig Borer, Fire Blight, Oak Skeletonizer, Twig Pruner, Winter Browning, Spruce Needleminer, Hawthorn Leaf Blight, Horse-Chestnut Leaf Blotch, Fall Cankerworm and many others.
