As patriotic citizens, let’s put extra effort into performing our own civic responsibilities. Our diversity should not be seen as a weakness but as our greatest strength. It is only by working together that we can build a resilient and thriving nation.

Caring for Trees Before & After a Storm

Denver experienced is first recorded derecho last month, leaving many residents of Denver without power and lots of storm damage. Protect your family, pets, cars and other personal property from the damaging effects of a fallen tree with proactive, year-round tree care. With annual inspections to identify potential hazards, routine supplemental fertilizer applications to manage tree health, and periodic pruning, your trees will be healthier and have a strong natural resistance to damage.

Signs before the storm
Cracks in tree trunks or limbs, missing or damaged root systems, leaning trees and low hanging branches are signs that, if left unchecked, could lead to tree failure and property damage during a storm.

Autumn Tree’s highly qualified arborist can help. Using best practices, they can determine whether a tree is more likely to fail during a storm due to potential problems such as:

  • Cracks in trunk or major limbs
  • Weak and poorly attached limbs and branches
  • Hollow or decayed areas
  • Deadwood
  • Weak branch attachments
  • Root injury or decay
  • Tree Pruning

If these problems are recognized early on, often times they can be corrected with pruning, cabling and bracing, and customized plant health care programs.

After A Storm Has Passed
After a storm has passed, we suggest that you assess your property for damage. If power lines are down, if you are unsure of the structural stability of a tree, or if you do not know if your tree is worth saving, you should call an Autumn Tree Lawn and Landscape.

Your trees will have a much better chance at surviving the storm if you have taken proper precautions. Remember, healthy trees adjust quickly to changes in the environment, and they are more likely to react effectively to storm damage. Therefore, if you are proactive and take the necessary steps to minimize storm damage before it occurs, you can prevent property damage and save yourself a great hassle and expense.
Plant of the Month
Tri-color Beech Tree
The Tri-Color Beech is without doubt one of the most beautiful trees you will ever see. Certainly, if you want a tree that is really special, and incredibly beautiful for a large part of the year, then this is it. The stunning foliage is purple and pink, making a tree in spring look like it is flowering, not simply leafing out. The color turns more purple by mid-summer, and then golden bronze in fall. In winter, the smooth, light-gray bark makes for continuing interest.

The Tri-Color Beech thrives in areas with moderate temperatures all year round. It will grow in any well-drained soil in most garden situations. It should be grown so that it has full sun in spring and afternoon shade in mid-summer. It needs no special pruning, and it can be grown with low branches, or a taller trunk. This easy-care tree has no significant pests or diseases, and it grows more beautiful every year that it occupies that special place in your garden.
