If you’re gearing up to sell your home, keeping your property well-maintained and properly staged starts from the outside. If you plan on selling your home in Toronto this fall or winter, now is the perfect time to prepare your trees for the colder weather while protecting your home at the same time.
You can even save money by taking a proactive approach when it comes to the trees on your property by removing dead or dying limbs – after all, it’s much cheaper to pay someone to cut down a tree than it is to fix your house after a tree blows onto it during a storm or snaps under heavy snow buildup.
Pruning excess branches from trees also lowers the trees’ overall wind resistance, which will reduce the chances of the tree breaking during high winter winds.
Undergoing tree maintenance by yourself can be dangerous, so leave bigger pruning or tree extraction jobs to professionals.
In addition, all of your larger trees including evergreens should be given one last thorough and deep watering before the weather gets too cold and the ground freezes. Younger trees may need more than one large watering before winter, and each tree should get enough water to soak the roots. Mulching the area around the tree’s trunk can also offer the trees more protection and nutrients to last throughout the winter and give the tree a boost for the spring months – making them green up much faster.
