Not sure what to get for the tree in your life that has everything? Our Treecologist’s made a list of the gifts they are giving to their favorite trees and shrubs this season.
(Note: Bradford pears and Leyland Cypress are on the naughty list yet again, so they are just getting coal. Sorry, y’all. Better luck next year).
Warm Blanket of Wood Chips
Winter cold snaps can be shocking to trees. A nice, thick blanket of hand carved, artisan wood chips will help your tree weather even the chilliest nights.
Gift Certificate for a Haircut
Do your trees have pandemic hair? Winter is a great time for a haircut. Contact our Treecologists to schedule an annual pruning.
As they say: no pain, no gain. Pruning helps trees get stronger. Felcos are our favorite hand pruners for small trees and shrubs—the ideal gift for a Musclewood tree in your yard.
Root collar excavation
Mulch volcanos can cover unsightly girdling that can cause significant health issues for your tree. Give your trees the gift of excavation this year. Perfect for the suburbanite Crepe myrtle who has everything and no time to fix their poorly installed mulch.
On a budget? Surely you haven't had time to rake your leaves this year. Just add a few festive red maple leaves and move them over to your beds. Trees can’t get their fill of rotting leaves this time of year.
This is a perennial favorite for trees. Worms help increase the health of your soil, which improves the health of your tree. It’s a win, win for everyone.
If 2020 were a color, it would look a lot like compost tea. Good thing trees love rotting stuff no matter what year it is. Give your trees the gift of compost.
We hope this list helps you find the perfect give for that special tree in your life. Have other suggestions? Send us a message, and we’ll add it to our list next Holiday Season.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Leaf & Limb.
