Proper Snow Removal

Proper Snow Removal

Instead of telling you to lift with your knees, it’s all about saving the branches of your trees. Contrary to what you might have heard, it is important after a heavy, wet snowfall to remove what has accumulated on certain plants like arborvitaes, boxwoods, and pines; basically anything that tends to bow under the weight of snow or splay open.

In cold temperatures, bending branches are not as flexible and will often snap. Just take a broom and gently brush the snow off. You want to do this before the snow has a chance to harden or else you risk causing more damage.
