Caring for your trees this Fall

Fall Tree Prep
For most homeowners with a yard full of lush green trees, fall means vibrant, changing leaves—on the trees and on the lawn. When most of the leaves have been bagged or composted, and you've put away your rake for the season, it's time to take stock of your trees. They're in a period of transition and need some extra attention to get them through the winter.
Without their leaves, it's easy to inspect for storm damage, dead branches, disease or insect damage. And next spring, when it's time for them put out new growth, your trees will thank you for spending some time with them now.
