Tree Care for Spring

Ridgewood, NJ — Winter blues bringing you down? Think Spring! The Ridgewood Shade Tree Commission is pleased to present Master Arborist, Colin Milde to discuss proper tree care for spring.

The wild weather we have experienced – from deep freezes to nearly 70-degree days this winter and excessive rain this fall – has affected our plants. Changes in climate are impacting our trees and shrubs and planning for a happy, healthy spring growing season is even more important this year. In addition to weather, over mulching, improper watering, and pests and disease all impact the health of our trees.

So, what should be done to make sure your trees are healthy after a rough winter? Milde will provide strategies such as proper pruning, mulching, and fertilizing that can provide relief for the stressors mentioned above and ensure your trees grow healthy and beautiful this spring.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
