Winter Checklist: Keep Your Branches Clean

If you are ready for winter weather, then you can take more time to relax. Even if it’s an unpredictably cold winter, you’ll know how to handle it. To keep your property safe, you need to focus on the outdoors just as much as you focus on the interior of your home.

Take Care of Snowy Branches

While trees can look beautiful covered in snow, you want to preserve their beauty year-round. To have healthy growth in the spring, do not let heavy snowfall weigh your branches down. Wait until it is safe to do so, and then use a long-handled tool, such as a broom or a rake, to gently knock the snow free from the branches. Stay on the backside to allow the snow to drop in front of you.
