Lansing, MI – (ReleaseWire) – 02/16/2022 – When Old Man Winter rears its ugly head in Michigan, things can get out of hand for your trees and shrubs pretty quickly. However, the good news is that companies like Lansing Tree Trimming & Removal Service have solutions to protect your foliage throughout the winter months.
One of the most crucial tree services in Lansing, MI the company has to offer is education on overwintering plants. Any native Michigander knows that without the proper precautions, some trees and shrubs may die or at the very least be damaged when the snow and ice begin to fly.
Taking steps to protect trees over winter is key to their survival. Chris Tyson, owner and CEO of Lansing Tree Service, offers various tips for residents of cold climates. He believes that with a little professional help, Michigan residents can ensure their trees continue to thrive.
Chris and his team love sharing their knowledge with their clients during tree interviews. They also invite anyone to stop by the office for educational materials and to discuss proper winter protocols for shrubs, bushes and trees.
“A lot of people think that the sturdy evergreens you see in Michigan can stay perfectly fine without getting bad weather through the winter, and that’s not always the case. There are things that can and should be to protect trees from frostbite. It’s the same concept as a human wearing gloves when going outside as temperatures drop,” said Chris Tyson.
Lansing’s logging company says keeping the soil evenly moist throughout the growing season makes it less prone to frost penetration than drier soil. By doing this, the tree or shrubs will have deeper and more robust root growth, which will protect them during the cold winter season.
Any piece of information Ed Beaman, an arborist on staff at Lansing Tree Service, had to give was to keep in mind the location of your trees. “If you are planting new shrubs and trees, it is best to place them in protected places in your landscape. For example, you would never want to plant trees and shrubs too close to the street because during the winter they be sprayed by salt water which is splashed by passing traffic.However, if you must plant near the road, always cover bushes and small trees with burlap to protect them.
This year, Chris Tyson and his team were asked to speak about winter tree maintenance at a local high school in Lansing. The class of students they were addressing were interested in becoming arborists and botanists. Ms Sellers, a ninth grade teacher, has this to say: “Mr Tyson and a few of his staff have done a wonderful job educating the class and myself on how to take better care of the trees during the tough times. Michigan’s winter season. We learned a lot of the things that I apply to my own landscape. It was great that the team was willing to not only talk to the students, but also answer their questions after the conference.”
Asked which of the most significant injuries seen on trees during the winter months, the company said it would have to be sunstroke. “Sunshine usually happens to thin-barked trees on cold, sunny winter days. First the bark warms up to the point that cambial activity resumes, then the bark temperature drops rapidly when the sun is blocked by a barrier, resulting in tissue death due to the sudden drop in temperature,” lamented Chris Tyson. He went on to say that sunstroke can be prevented by wrapping the tree in a material. special, by applying tree guards or even painting the trunk of the tree with anti-reflective paint.
Lansing Tree Service has seen too many cases of tree death due to improper winterization and wants to teach the general public how to prevent this from happening. It is important to preserve the integrity of the landscape from October to March if you want to see minimal damage as spring approaches. Fall months are included as winter weather often begins in late September in Mitten State.
