Time for Winter Watering
Its been weeks with little moisture. Urban and other planted trees require additional, regular watering over the winter. During these extended dry periods, provide supplemental water per the guidelines above. The best time for winter watering is on warmer days, when snow has melted off and the temperature is above 40 degrees. Contact us for a deep root watering estimate for your trees and shrubs.

Plant a tree, reap the benefits
Tree plantings benefit people, land and wildlife by:

  • Reducing soil erosion and improving crop yields
  • Providing food and cover for wildlife
  • Reducing water evaporation, preserving winter moisture, and protecting and improving water quality
  • Controlling drifting snow
  • Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide
  • Increasing our supply of renewable resources
  • Deciduous trees, planted on the south and west sides, will keep your house cool in the summer and let the sun warm your home in the winter, reducing energy use. (U.S. Department of Energy)
  • Just three trees, properly placed around a house, can save up to 30% of energy use. (U.S. Forest Service Center for Urban Forest Research)
  • Trees or shrubs planted to shade air conditioners help cool a building more efficiently, using less electricity. A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10% less electricity than the same one operating in the sun. (U.S. Department of Energy)

Many people establish conservation plantings to attract wildlife. Each wildlife species has its own habitat requirements. Individual species can be attracted by planting trees and shrubs that provide food and cover.

To increase wildlife habitat, first decide which wildlife species is desired:

  • To attract deer and elk, plant tree and shrub species that provide them with a winter source of food and cover. Big game animals seek feeding areas away from humans and roadways.
  • If song birds are preferred, select species that are less desirable to deer and elk or the planting will be destroyed by excessive browsing.
