Caring for your Charleston home’s landscaping should take place all year long. Fall is a particularly important time to take a good look at all of your home’s trees in this coastal area. Autumn is the time of the year when your trees have specific needs before going dormant for winter. The professionals know how to help your trees cope with this process and remain healthy.
Storms are frequent during the fall in Charleston, SC. Heavy rain and high winds can cause lots of tree branches to fall. Even healthy and strong trees can have dead or weakened limbs that can be damaged by storms. Excessive rainfall may also affect the root system, leading to fungal growth, rotting roots, or even loosening of the soil enough to dislodge the tree. Fall tree care from our trained arborists removes all the weakened or dead branches to prevent damages.
Proper fertilization during the fall helps the tree store the resources it needs to survive the winter and begin regrowing leaves in spring. Determining the proper amount of fertilizer to use is essential; using too little will not help, and too much can cause harm. Our experts know precisely how much fertilizer to apply to your trees to keep them healthy and looking good.
The late fall and early winter are the best time to prune trees in this area. But it’s imperative to use proper pruning techniques. Our experts can help ensure that, come spring, your tree will blossom and grow. Pruning too many healthy limbs or too close to vital areas can cause stress, damage, or even kill the tree. Trust a professional to trim the tree correctly for maximum health and a balanced aesthetic.
Planting New Trees
Fall is a great time to plant new trees on your Charleston, SC property. The mild temperatures of the season make it easier for a sapling to root. Care must be taken to choose a location for the new tree so that there are no obstacles to its growth. Ensure the tree is not placed near electric poles, water lines, or underground gas lines. The best option is to enlist a professional to help you choose a location, treat the area, and dig the hole deep enough to provide a secure start.
