Winter watering very important to tree health

Friday, February 1, 2013

With much of the nation still experiencing drought conditions, it is important to remember that trees need your help this winter. As of last week, mountain snowpack in Colorado was at 62 percent of average and Colorado Springs had received less than half its normal winter precipitation. Experts say to forget about your lawn.

Unfortunately, many people believe that trees go dormant in winter and don’t need water. The truth is that while the tree’s functions slow, it does not shut down.
