EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Grow with KARE this week and next will tackle ways you can prevent winter tree damage.
We will cover rodent and deer injury, how to prevent winter sun damage, salt damage and talk about tree wrapping and securing.
Rainbow Treecare arborist Tom Carmen is a great resource for tree issues and we really appreciate his expertise.
He also reminds homeowners that if you are going to be putting up holiday lights to be careful of the trees and take them down later in the winter or early spring. Leaving holiday lights on trees for any duration can cause the tree to be damaged by the tree branches being girdled by the cords.
Good luck with your trees.
Belinda & Bobby
