The best advice I can give you is to call upon your local tree service for assistance with your overall or general tree care, especially for the younger trees. A tree service can only perform tree work, but can give the advice you need to make sure you are making the right decisions when it comes to maintaining, fertilizing and protecting your trees.
Not to mention that many tree services are best left to professionals. While it is great to be a do-it-yourselfer, you don't want to jeopardize the health of your tree or waste the dollars already invested in the tree by making rookie mistakes.
We've done many, many blog posts about young tree care. If you're just stumbling upon this post and have missed the previous ones, our informational posts on young tree care found here, here and here!
Take a look at those and they will guide you through the adventures of tree care for your youngster tree. If you still have questions, give us a shout out! We'd love to help you.
