Tree Woes
What happened and what
T to do about it
his past winter and spring have been challenging for trees along the Front Range. Our very cold October 2019 “ rst frost,” a largely dry winter, and another damaging freeze in mid- April have taken their toll on both evergreens and deciduous trees. Many evergreens are brown in whole or in sections; some deciduous trees have not leafed out or only have leaves on a few branches.
It’s a bit too early to tell for sure. Check the twigs; if they are pliable and supple then the tree may be able to set new
Watering Hours: May–September You may water before 8am & after 8pm
