What To Do in the Summer to Keep Your Trees and Lawns Healthy?
Summer tree care is all about managing tree insects and keeping tree root systems hydrated. Many of the tree pests identified in the Ross Tree Insect Calendar in the spring can become infestations under the right conditions. Property owners with a tree insect problem, please check out the tree insect calendar to identify the bugs in your trees.

Pruning Young Trees
Summer is a great time to prune young trees to encourage healthy growth and a desirable structure. Pruning starts by establishing a single dominant leader. Trees with good form require less pruning as they mature, saving money in the long run. Click here for more information about caring for newly planted trees.
Denver’s Clay Soils
A common tree issue is Denver’s notorious clay soils. Some trees grow poorly in clay soils because of lack of aeration, which decreases the ability of the root systems to replenish water loss brought about by our dry climate.
