Trees responding to tough winter
June 12, 2019
As residents may be seeing, some trees are just now leafing out. However, others may have died over the winter. It appears the cold temperatures in February has killed some trees or tree limbs. The cold temperatures in March are responsible for the late leafing of trees. Buds were frozen in March causing late leaf out. People may want to take their time in deciding to trim or remove a tree. Give them a little extra time to recover. Also, if you break a branch off and it snaps, it is dead. Green, live tissue bends. Water the trees at the drip line (end of the branches).
