Trees are like icebergs; much of what happens, happens below the surface. When you look at the trees on your property you see the leaves, buds, branches, fruit and flowers but you do not see the roots. You can’t see what is going on below the ground, but the root ball of a large healthy tree can be up to ten times the size of the parts of the tree that are visible above the ground. Just because the roots are under the ground does not mean that they can’t be damaged in the winter. Root damage from the cold can vary from mild to severe, and in extreme cases, the only solution will be complete tree removal.
Gardeners pack away their gardening tools in the winter and landscape companies often turn to snow clearing at this time of year, but stump and tree removal services don’t shut up shop during the cold months. Trees and shrubs may be dormant in the cold weather, but tree service businesses are not. Winter is the perfect time for pruning and shaping trees and tree service companies are often called in to remove dead trees and old stumps.
