Use our Silver Spring summer tree care guide to keep your trees growing strong all summer long!
Silver Spring summer tree care is important to keep your trees healthy and strong making them less susceptible to damage throughout the rest of the year particularly during the harsher winter months.
- Tree Pruning: Pruning fruit trees is particularly important during summer as it allows the branches to maximize sunlight exposure and produce the best fruit. Summer is also the best time to prune trees or shrubs that produce flowers in the spring right after they have finished blooming. While winter storms are no longer a threat, summer weather can bring strong winds so be sure to remove any tree limbs or branches that appear weak and have the potential to fall and cause damage.
- Tree Fertilization: Summer is the best time to fertilize trees to protect them from the harsh heat and make them better able to withstand the winter storms to come. When it comes to Silver Spring summer tree care, Ed’s Tree Service uses the Mauget Tree Injection Process for tree fertilization. This method injects liquid fertilizer directly into the sap wood at the base of the tree. With a lot of watering this special mineral formula is designed to stimulate growth of the tree foliage, trunk and root system.
Choosing a Professional Arborist
If you’re considering a professional tree service for your Silver Spring summer tree care, make sure to choose a licensed and insured arborist, like Ed’s Tree Service, that you can trust. Some summer tree care can be performed by homeowners, but often an untrained eye isn’t able to detect everything. It is especially important to consider a professional tree service for tree pruning or tree fertilization to maximize the benefits.
