3 Tree Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Trees Healthy Year-Round, Sparta, Georgia

As a homeowner, you know trees do more than just improve your landscape—they provide shade for your home, act as habitats for songbirds, and add value to your property. Proper tree maintenance is key to ensuring your yard looks its best. The team at Tidwell’s Tree Service serving Macon and Milledgeville, GA, has helped residents with their tree care needs for over 30 years.

Here, their experienced arborist shares a few simple tree maintenance tips to keep your property lush year-round:

  • Make Use of Mulch: Even mature trees need to protect their roots from erosion, overwatering, and drought. Luckily, all you need to do is spread a layer of mulch around the base of each of your trees. The mulch acts as a protective barrier against the elements, reducing the risk of erosion and contributing to the nutrient content of the soil. Make sure you spread new mulch every year or as needed should the rain wash some away.
  • Don’t Overwater: Irrigation systems are wonderful additions to any yard, but if you’re not careful, you may end up overwatering your trees. Each tree’s watering needs will be different, but most prefer damp soil that can dry out for a few hours each day. This helps replenish oxygen levels in the soil and keeps the dirt from compacting around the roots.
  • Tree MaintenancePrune Regularly: Trees need to be pruned periodically to establish healthy growth habits. Scheduling tree trimming in the winter will prepare the tree for vibrant growth in the spring, while pruning in the summer helps curb fast growth. Instead of pruning your trees on your own, hire an experienced tree maintenance team to do the job for you. The experts at Tidwell’s Tree Service will take care to trim just the right amount from each branch, so you’ll never have to worry about harming your foliage.
