Summer Tree Care Essentials Tips from SCV Water
As the sun stretches its rays longer and temperatures soar, our trees face the challenge of summer
head-on. With their foliage swaying in the warm breeze, trees provide shade, habitat and beauty, but they also require extra attention during the hot months to thrive. SCV Water offers essential tips to help your trees thrive during the hottest months.
Deep watering in the early morning or evening is essential to keep trees hydrated and resilient to drought.
Apply two to four inches of organic mulch around the base of trees to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature and suppress weeds.
Light pruning to remove dead or diseased branches improves air circulation and structure.
Pest Control
Watch for signs of pests or diseases and consult an arborist if necessary.
Sun Protection
Shield young or thin-barked trees from sunburn with wraps or diluted white latex paint.
Use slow-release organic fertilizer sparingly in late spring.
Water Stress
Monitor trees for signs of water stress and adjust watering to prevent wilting or browning.
By following these tips, you can help your trees survive and thrive throughout the summer.
