Long Island Blizzard Tree Care Tip

snow on branches

Well we finally got that snow we’ve been lacking and a lot of it!  We officially got 19.8 inches of snow here on parts of the south shore and more elsewhere on the Island.  If you have ventured out you will notice tree limbs drooping due to being over weighted with snow and the first reaction is to brush them off… but beware.

For the best care of your trees with snow-covered branches first allow the sun to start melting the snow and the branches will gradually start to pop back up.   If you are able to gently brush off the snow do so but if the snow is frozen on the branches let it melt naturally in order to avoid tree breakage.   The tree branches are very fragile right now and can be damaged easily.

Stay warm.  Spring is on its way!
