Expert Advice by Tree Surgeons in Burgess Hill | Winter Checklist
The storms, frost and rapid temperature fluctuations can take their toll on trees during the cold winter months.

Winter Tree Care & Preparation
• Autumn is an excellent time to arrange for your tree surgery to be carried out, giving them adequate time to recover in the dormant winter season. Qualified tree surgeons such as Arbor Cura Tree Surgery Ltd, will know the best surgery solutions to keep your tree healthy for the following spring and summer.
• If you have young trees at your Burgess Hill property, special care should be taken to keep them protected and healthy. They should be watered until temperatures fall to freezing and a 3 inch to 4 inch layer of insulating mulch applied around the base of the plant.
• Make visual inspections of your trees on a regular basis to spot problems early on. Some of the main warning signs to look out for include early leaf dropping, brown or black spots on leaves and swollen swells on the trunk which can indicate disease. You should also keep an eye on visual evidence of pests and damaged branches.
• If any hazardous frost, winds or other winter weather causes severe damage to any trees, contact our qualified tree surgeons. We offer 24-hour emergency callouts for property owners throughout Burgess Hill and the surrounding areas and can carry out safe and efficient tree surgery, tree felling and stump grinding services.
