Quick tips to manage your trees in winter

In winter the weather can be awful. Trees are doing their best to survive, with their own levels of an ‘antifreeze type’ substance.

Many trees appear to lay dormant, or with minimal function until the temperature and levels of sunlight increase to trigger spring growth.

Be aware in winter that the weight of snow can cause branches to break and so it is advisable to check your trees after the snow fall has melted.
