Trees and shrubs need a constant supply of water to stay healthy. While many homeowners might not realize it, that need is just as pressing during the winter. In fact, frozen soil and dry air during winter can make watering even more urgent. The professionals at T4 Tree Services can provide for your winter watering needs.
The Importance of Winter Watering
Overlooking winter watering is one of the biggest mistakes a homeowner can make when it comes to taking care of trees. This is particularly true here in Grand Junction, Colorado.
You may not realize it, but many of the most popular trees on properties throughout the region aren’t native. This often means that they have an increased need for water during winter, compared to native trees that are better suited to the local climate.
Even if we get some of snow, that doesn’t mean that your trees are getting enough water. A foot of snow only carries as much water as an inch of rain, and your trees only get that water once the snow melts, and much is lost to evaporation from the surface.
Little available water, dry air, and fluctuating temperatures create difficult winters for trees here in Colorado. Depending on the specific type of trees and shrubs you have and their maturity, winter watering may be necessary to ensure their continued health.
A lack of water can quickly damage root systems, and you won’t notice any damage until after the spring thaw. The weakened trees are left susceptible to damage from insects and disease, and you may notice them stressed after they bud out.
