Tree Maintenance Essentials

pruningPlanting a tree is easy but taking care of the tree and making sure that it is healthy and can withstand mother nature takes time, knowledge and care. At Mr. Tree and Lawn Service, we believe in taking the best care of trees possible, that’s why we’ve listed three tree maintenance essentials you may not know you needed. Check them out!



When you Google search the word “prune,” it is defined as, “trim (a tree, shrub, or bush) by cutting away dead or overgrown branches or stems, especially to increase fruitfulness and growth.” Pruning a tree effectively helps to maintain its shape and appearance. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, late winter is the best time to prune in many regions, but it also depends on your plant, so be sure to research your plant.


Protection from diseases and pests:

Even plants that are well tended to can become infested with pests or diseases. The best thing to do is know the warning signs of an infection or disease, and begin treatment as soon as possible to save the plant. If you see holes in the leaves of your plants, notice abrupt color changes, or unwanted pests hanging around, give us a call as soon as possible.


Damage and prevention:
