Seasonal Tree Care Tips for Long Island Homeowners


Nurture Your Trees Through the Seasons with Expert Guidance

What Long Island Trees Need Each Season

In Long Island, our trees face a rollercoaster of weather conditions throughout the year. With each season’s unique challenges, knowing how to cater to your trees can make a huge difference. In winter, the focus is on protecting trees from freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, which can cause branches to snap and trunks to split. When the cold subsides, inspecting trees for winter damage and kickstarting the healing process is crucial.


With spring’s arrival, trees awaken in need of attention to mend any winter injuries. It’s important to clear away the debris that may have accumulated at their bases. As the weather gets warmer, checking for damaged limbs, ensuring proper hydration, and preparing for new growth become top priorities. 


This early preparation sets the stage for your trees’ health, making them more resilient against pests and diseases. Our services include a detailed inspection followed by a tailored care plan. We ensure that your trees get the precise help they need to flourish in the coming months.

Spring Tree Care: Get Ready for Growth

Spring is about cleaning up and helping your trees grow. Winter storms can leave a mess. Our first job in spring is to clear up broken branches and leaves. This cleanup helps prevent diseases and pests. Then we check for any signs of damage or disease that winter might have brought.


Pruning is important now as well. Cutting away the dead or weak parts contributes to your trees growing better and staying healthy. Spring is also when your trees are in need of nutrients. We use fertilizers to give them a boost so they can grow strong and green all summer.

Summer Tree Care: Watch for Heat and Bugs

Summer heat in Long Island can put some strain on the health of your trees. Younger trees or those standing alone need extra water when it’s hot and dry. Watering the right way helps trees build deep, strong roots. We also recommend using mulch as it keeps the roots moist and cool. But too much of it can cause issues as well. It’s all about finding the right balance.


Summer is also a time when bugs come out. We recommend keeping an eye out for pests and diseases that love the warm weather. Catching problems early means we can treat them before they get serious. This keeps your trees healthy all summer long.

Fall Tree Care: Prepare for the Cold

Fall is when trees get ready for winter. We help by giving the roots special food and fertilizer that help them through the cold. Pruning is still important, but we do it carefully. Our experts recommend only cutting what you need, so the trees can stay strong when the winter winds blow.

This is also a great time to plant new trees. As the weather gets cooler, it’s less of a shock for them, and they can get familiar with the climate. With our personalized care, we can help you pick the best types of trees for your yard and get them settled in before winter.

Winter Tree Care: Maintenance and Protection

Trees rest in winter, but Long Island Best Tree Service does not. We watch out for heavy snow and ice that can break branches. Protecting the young trees from cold and animals is also part of our job. We might wrap them up or clear snow away from the trunk.


Winter is a good time to prune because we can see the tree’s shape clearly. Cuts also heal faster when it’s cold, so there’s less chance of disease. We take care of these things so that when spring comes, your trees are ready to go.
