Winter To Spring Transitions – What Does This Mean For Your Trees?

Winter is coming to an end, meaning that warmer days are ahead. What does this mean for your trees? If you think your trees look dead as the snow begins to melt, you are most likely wrong. Trees are complex and go through phases as they prepare for winter. The same occurs as spring draws near. Trees reduce their water as winter begins; this is the reason for the color changes of the leaves. As leaves begin to fall, the leaves, soil, and eventually layers of snow act as insulating for the roots of your tree. This protects your trees through the harsh conditions. Many times the trees look dead, but they are just in survival mode, awaiting spring so that they can bloom and thrive again!

As the snow begins to melt and the weather begins to warm, the tree will start to hydrate itself. During this transition, the tree will begin to come alive again and start to sprout new growth and leaves. Unfortunately, climate change has scrambled the signals for many trees, which can cause trees to bloom too early. When this occurs, they are at risk of frost burn, which can result in dead limbs. It is important to contact your local tree service to ensure your trees are ready for the winter to spring transition.
