This is how to save a tree after an ice storm. Granted, sometimes the tree is a wreck and you loose this awesome asset BUT some trees like the Bradford Pear in the video , even though it was a “stump” recovered and is now an attractive shade tree.
So why save a tree in the first place ? Have you ever been standing under a hot summer sun when a cloud meandered by ? The change in your sense of heat is instantaneous . The cloud is “absorbing” or blocking the heat in a sense. This is what trees do for your house or office building. The shade of a tree can drastically drop your cooling bills in the summer and a trees component to your property value , think about that !
Proper pruning , proper fertilization & proper irrigation of your tree is a living asset that will pay you back in countless . Love thy tree !
