Winter Watch

In this informative video, ISA Certified Arborists Wes Rivers and Cory Herpel delve into the fascinating world of tree care during the winter months. Discover how the colder season can actually be advantageous in controlling pests and diseases that often plague our precious trees. Join us as we explore effective techniques to bolster our trees’ defenses and make them less susceptible to harmful agents.

Throughout the video, our expert explains various application methods. One such method involves using horticultural oil or dormant oil during the tree’s dormant phase. By doing so, we can tackle the first wave of pests, preemptively safeguarding the tree as it enters the spring season. Additionally, we explore the use of soil-applied insecticides, which stay in the ground and provide early pest control as the tree begins its growth cycle. No more waiting for pests to appear before acting – the treatment is already in place!

We learn how the horticultural oil proves to be a natural and preventive solution. Specifically targeted at overwintering pests that emerge in the warming spring, this organic approach helps keep the tree protected without resorting to harsh chemicals.

Moreover, the video sheds light on the TNP process, a recommended practice even during winter. Using slow-release fertilizer, we ensure that the tree’s roots continue to grow, providing essential nutrients for upcoming growth spurts. When the tree awakens in the spring, it will have all the necessary elements in place to flourish and thrive.

With these insightful techniques and practices, you’ll be well-equipped to nurture your trees throughout the winter season. Watch the video now and empower yourself with the knowledge to protect and support your trees year-round!
