Even “The Guardian”, a London newspaper, posted an article about the frigid temps in Rockford, Illinois. If you were around in January, you experienced (and hopefully survived) the Polar Vortex of 2019.
Our record temps in January dipped to minus 30, with wind chills recorded near 50-below. Not only can those numbers be problematic for exposed skin, they can also wreak havoc on trees and shrubs. As we settle in and ready ourselves for a more comfortable season, its time to inspect your greenery. Multi-stemmed evergreens, for example, such as junipers and arborvitae are susceptible to branch breakage. When that happens, those branches need to be pruned. Damaged shrubs may also need attention in order to restore their attractive, natural shapes.
Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is trained to spot distressed plants. We can make recommendations on proper care, including spring pruning, fertilization and insect control.
