Tips on Tree Root Care

A tree’s roots aren’t always underground. They can grow above ground, in open air, and even underwater. All they need to grow is an environment that supplies oxygen, water, warmth, and nutrients to it. They grow without predefined patterns, adapting to their surroundings as opportunities present.

Caring for tree roots is all about understanding the growth of the root and providing the necessary means for proper growth. If you see big roots sticking out of the ground, snaking or curling on the soil’s surface around a tree, sometimes it indicates other underlying issues.

Fall Clean-Up Tasks for Your Commercial Landscape

Stray leaves on the ground mean that the fall season is upon us. Those first leaves remind us that it’s time to start planning for fall clean-ups and to prepare for the unique landscape maintenance needs of the coming winter.

Many commercial property managers associate fall clean-up with collecting and blowing leaves, and this is certainly a major part of the job. But an in-depth fall cleanup plan includes plant protection, pruning, and cleaning leaves of debris from drainage areas. It’s also imperative to apply pre-emergent herbicides in order to stop weed seed germination while temperatures are still normal.
