What To Do in the Fall to Keep Your Trees and Lawns Healthy?

The fall is a great time to help trees recover from a hot summer. If you drive by Cheesman Park in Denver, the Linden trees are highly stressed and need watering badly. Once tree leaves drop, it is much easier to see where to prune trees. Winter is coming, so it is crucial to prepare trees for Denvers unpredictable weather. Ross Tree’s General Manager discusses fall tree and lawn care issues in the video below.

Fall tree trimming

Fall Tree Pruning

Fall is a great time to trim trees to promote healthy growth patterns. Pruning trees to a dominant leader helps them avoid mechanical breakage from strong winds and snowstorms.

pine beetle treatment in Denver

Pine Beetle Treatment

Conifers affected by Pine Beetles get treated in the summer and fall. Adult beetles hatching from pupae will be on the move looking for a new tree to infest when the weather is warm. Spraying the bark kills beetles as they land. Combining the spray with systemic injections helps most any tree from these predatory pests.

deep root watering and fertilization

Deep Root Watering and Feeding

Trees leaves turning early usually means they are stressed. If Denver had a hot summer, we recommend deep water feeding to get the root system healthy. Once trees drop their leaves, the tree shifts its focus from photosynthesizing to gathering energy through its root system to prepare for winter. Deep root feeding allows root systems to absorb nutrients for use during dormancy. Ross Tree uses fertilizers with slow-release nutrients, micro-nutrients, organic material, and microbial spores to improve the soils in which trees grow.

Fall lawn care in Denver

Fall Lawn Care

The fall is a great time to set the stage for robust grass growth in the spring. We recommend laying down fertilizer with iron to green up the lawn when it gets warm again in May. Also, the application of humic acid in the fall boosts soil microbial activity that makes nutrients more available to root systems. Humus consists of decomposed plant material making base elements such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur available to plant life.
