Trees and Shrubs Spring Cleaning Checklist

It’s mid-March here in beautiful Denver and that means spring cleaning for your trees and shrubs. You can give your trees and shrubs plenty of open, cleared-up space for future spring growth with just an hour or two of your time. Spring cleaning also helps remove potential disease and high-risk areas. Fielding Tree and Shrub Care has created our official spring cleaning checklist to help your trees and shrubs look their best for a new year ahead!

Do your trees need a tree doctor?

You wouldn’t hire just anybody to do major surgery, would you? Just because someone claims to be a doctor doesn’t mean they’re the right type of doctor. A dentist may know how to replace a crown, but they’d do a terrible job on a knee replacement. You also wouldn’t assume any doctor is automatically a good doctor until you get to know them and see their work.

The same principle is true when it comes to caring for your trees.
