Your Bethesda, Maryland Summer Tree Care Guide 

  • Make sure you do appropriate 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.
  • Consider 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 Bethesda 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.
