The autumn brings an ideal time for tree maintenance. The cooler temperatures make it more comfortable to work outside, there are far fewer leaves in the way, and best of all, most tree diseases and parasites are less active in the cooler weather – so you can perform more tree surgery without the risk of killing your trees entirely.
It is an excellent time to plant, as well. The colder weather puts less stress on any newer, less established trees – meaning it is an ideal time for you to expand upon the foliage on your property. New trees aren’t subject to the intense summer heat, and can adapt to their new surroundings far more easily over the long haul of the winter months. Root systems have longer time frame to adapt to their new surroundings, and won’t be as easily dried out.
The intense dry heat of the summer in the Northern Beaches can also be difficult for your trees to cope with, and by the end of the season, they may be in need of a nutrient boost. A good slow-release formula on their roots can ensure they stay healthy through the winter, and reduces your odds of requiring tree removal services in later years.
To segue, the autumn is also the best time to prune and trim any branches in tricky positions. The windy and wet weather of the Northern Beaches winter months can wreak havoc upon trees that have overgrown their capabilities to stay standing. Some can be preserved with cabling, but many can not.
