What To Do When Your Trees Flood

Matt Latham from US Tree Care stopped by with some information on what to do after your trees get flooded. 

1. After a big storm the structure of your trees has probably been damaged. You will need to asses how much of your tree has been damaged. If it is more than 50% damaged it will more than likely need to be removed. If it is less than 50% damaged you may be able to save it with some TLC. Get a professional to come out and acess and trim your tree if needed to remove the damaged parts and set your tree up to grow back healthy. 

2. Flooding can remove a lot of the nutrients from the soil around your tree so you will need to fertilize your tree more than normal to make up for this.
