What's buzzing at Autumn Tree:

Spring is a time of hope and renewal! When we set our sights on new goals, and embark on fresh beginnings. It’s no wonder that this season is often associated with change and growth. Just as the trees and flowers are reaching for the sun, we too feel the urge to stretch our limbs and reach new heights. Autumn Tree Lawn and Landscape is also going through change and growth. Brytanie, who has been with us for several years, will be pursuing her passion for her art business. We will miss her creativity and dedication in the office, but wish her all the best in her future endeavors. If you are interested in any of her amazing work you can browse her catalog for BDOT Artsy at, www.bdotartsy.com

"Farwell. It's a word that is both sad and happy. Sad because it marks the end of something and happy because it opens the door to new beginnings. I have enjoyed working with each of you these past four years. Looking back, I've learned so much; not just about the tree industry but about each one of our clients. Though we've never met in person, you will leave a lasting impression on my heart. It's been a pleasure getting to know you. I wish you all the best." - Brytanie

Get Your Landscape Looking Good!!!

Did You Know?

Now is a good time to schedule your Lawn Revive and supplemental /Deep Root Water treatments. Colorado weather has been very dry. It is important to hydrate your lawn and trees. It takes 10 inches of average snow, 4 to 5 inches of wet snow, or 15 inches of powdery snow, to produce 1" of water! The Metro area has gotten very little precipitation since mid March. This not only causes an unhealthy landscape but can create dangerously dry conditions for your property. With these dry conditions, sprinklers are not enough to quench the thirst of your trees.



IPS beetle tree damage2.jpg

Do you know how many different species of IPS beetles there are in Colorado?

IPS beetles, sometimes known as “engraver beetles,” are bark beetles that damage Pine and Spruce trees. They develop under the bark and produce girdling tunnels that kill trees. Colorado currently has Eleven species of IPS beetles. The only treatment for these unwanted pests is PREVENTATIVE CARE. Once these beetles infest a tree it cannot be saved. We are wrapping up our IPS applications, if you have not scheduled an appointment to treat your Pine or Spruce trees, give us a call or schedule your appointment.

Other Pesky Tree Munchers

The emerald ash borer (EAB) is an invasive wood-boring beetle, Since its arrival, the EAB has been rapidly spreading across North America, having devastating effects on the ash tree population and killing up to 99% of ash trees in its path. EAB continues to spread in all directions across North America where ash trees are present. Colorado is home to 92 flathead borers that feed on various fruit, Ash, Willow, Birch, Cottonwood, and Locust trees. Like the IPS beetles, the only treatment for EAB is PREVENTATIVE CARE. Once these beetles infest a tree it becomes very difficult and expensive to try and save it. If you have not scheduled an appointment to treat your Ash trees, give us a call or schedule your appointment below.

Dormant Fruit tree.jpg

Fruit tree in Dormant Season:

During the winter months, temperate fruit trees go into dormancy; it is only broken when the trees have endured temperatures between 32 and 45 degrees. Dormant pruning should take place before buds begin to swell. This usually means late November through early March.

Most tree diseases are dormant during winter, limiting their spread. By waiting for the late November to early March time frame, the tree will heal as it starts to wake up and grow in the spring. This is the time of year that we can prune your fruit trees.

Fruit tree In Season.jpg

Fruit tree in Active Growing Season:

We do not prune fruit trees during this time of year because cutting its live fruitful branches causes the tree to be more susceptible to bacterias that can infect and kill the tree. 

Fire blight is one of the most common diseases that your fruit tree can become infected with when pruning during active growing season. This is a disease that can kill blossoms, shoots and cause dieback of branches from cankers. Severe fire blight can even cause trees to die.
