Water When Soil Isn’t Frozen

Pruning dead branches and wood in winter while trees are dormant will help not only increase tree growth but will also help prevent bleeding. It’s is especially important for certain trees that can bleed extensively when pruned at the wrong time.
Mulch Before Soil Freezes
Mulching before the soil freezes will help protect it from cold and keep the temperature stable. Use organic mulch material to provide your plants with nutrients. Think pine needles, sawdust, hardwood chips or bark, and other.
