The Fall Season is here, and the weather is getting colder. In our most recent blogs, we have been talking about our Fall Tree Services. We offer expert planting, pruning, crowning, removal, and much more. In this blog, we want to talk about the changes trees go through when entering their dormant period. You can observe some of the changes your trees go through during this period.
Much like hibernating animals, trees go through a dormancy period when temperatures drop. During the Fall Season and into Winter, trees will begin their dormancy process. Trees protect themselves during the coldest months. Their dormancy slows down everything, including their metabolism and growth. Trees require less water during the Fall and Winter months. A reduced amount of water allows them to store energy until Spring arrives, and new growth begins. Trees dormancy is dependent on weather conditions. The first clear sign that your trees are entering the dormancy period is when they start losing their leaves. The changes in the color of the leaves is also a sign that dormancy has begun.
Protect Your Trees
For your trees to maintain optimal health during their dormant period, it is essential to prepare them for extreme weather conditions such as rare hard freezes. With our Fall Tree Services, we check the stability of your tree’s limbs and look for signs of damage or disease. We also offer Line Removal and work with the appropriate utility companies to ensure safety.
