Winter Storms-Cold Stress
If your tree has been damaged by winter storms, we are sorry to hear that. Mother nature is definitely not kind to objects outdoors during storms. The elements of the winter can be very cruel to trees, shrubs and plants alike.
However, we do have a few tips for you to provide protection to your trees during such a desolate time of the year.
Cold Stress is a common issue trees may have. This occurs during the time that temperatures change from warm to freezing (when the sun is out vs the middle of the night). This immediate change in temperature can create stresses within your tree which will inevitably lead to cracks. The best news we can give you is that in most situations, your tree will be able to repair and heal itself.
