Fall is a great season for bonfires and fireplaces to share their warmth. We hate seeing trees die, but we love seeing dead trees being used for the right purpose. Finding good firewood can be a challenge though and there are a few risks to keep in mind. Did you know that tainted wood for your fireplace or fire pit can actually cause a threat to your existing trees?
Firewood can carry a variety of diseases and bugs depending on how it’s stored.
Ah, fall is in the air!
Who doesn’t love fall?! It’s the season of football, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple ciders, bonfires, and pumpkin spice everything. It’s also the time for raking leaves and getting your trees ready for winter. Yes, the weather may be in the 70s across Denver, but a quick plunge into winter can be only days away.
Now that your trees have shaken loose of their leaves,
Fall is the perfect season for s’mores, campfire ghost stories, and a steaming cup of apple cider. It’s also when many homeowners think of trimming their fruit trees.
One of the more common mistakes we see homeowners make is trimming their fruit trees while the fruit and leaves are still present. This creates extra openings in the tree’s vascular system that allows deadly diseases to enter. Too many beautiful fruit trees become the victims of blight and other diseases from poorly timed trimmings.
