How to Help Your Trees Thrive in the Fall

 

Caring for dead trees in the winter

Fall Thrive Program

By Bradley Boobar

Have you heard about our Fannin Thrive Tree Care Program?

In the Fall, trees slow down to prepare for the dormant season. Plant resources are being reallocated to other areas in the plant to optimize storage and restoration. This is a very good time of year to have your trees assessed by a professional arborist. Plants have the most optimal growth between the temperatures of 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. During the fall, the moisture puts out the highest percentage of root growth. Typically, when the air temperatures are cooler than the soil, root growth is amplified more than new top growth. Increasing the root growth in the Fall also prepares the tree for future Spring growth.

We have a comprehensive program that we call the Fannin Thrive Program. Our Fall services include an assessment by a trained arborist and prescription fertilization services. In addition to fertilization, the arborist will assess each of your trees, provide pest and disease applications that can arise in the Fall and make recommendations for pruning, plant health maintenance, and other services.

If you are looking to improve your tree’s performance, or need help diagnosing a plant problem, the arborist at Fannin Tree Farm are the professionals you can trust. Our team is led by our Board-Certified Master Arborist and each one participates in continuing education programs to stay sharp in our profession.

Our fertilization and treatment services have proven to be effective in peer-reviewed research; all tree services provided by Fannin Tree Farm are in accordance to the ANSI A300 standards for arboriculture operations.
