Property owners who value their landscaping want their trees to grow in a healthy manner and look beautiful. You may think fertilizing routinely is the best approach and even seen your neighbors fertilizing. And yet, you might still be wondering if you should jump on the fertilizer bandwagon, “If they’re doing it, should I be doing it to?” Believe it or not, routinely applying fertilizer to your trees is rarely the best approach.
Winter is officially here and that means plenty of snow across the Front Range, right?
Not exactly. Even if Denver and those glorious mountains receive a hefty load of fresh powder, it doesn’t always translate to the much-needed moisture our trees need to thrive.

When it comes to natural beauty, nothing beats the majestic aspen. Who doesn’t love going up to the mountains to watch the aspens be ‘on fire’ in the fall? Their brilliant, yellow leaves contrast spectacularly with the cloudless, blue backdrop of a Colorado sky. They are truly one of Denver’s natural treasures. Sadly, many Denver residents are losing these treasures unexpectedly. Recently, we have received an alarming number of calls from folks who report their aspens are suddenly dying.
