Our home office is Memphis, and we have other offices in Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. We have many satisfied customers as our mission is to make the customer's needs, the top priority. It is not too soon to start thinking about cold weather proofing your commercial property. This includes valuable trees. These are expensive to replace and take years to grow. Unlike humans or wildlife, trees are stationary. There is no place for them to go to get warm. Nature did provide them with the ability to shed leaves. This allows them to require less water. Then nature does allow them to go through some cell changes but at the end of the day, they count on humans to take care of them. That is where a professional and certified landscape technician can assist. Pugh's Earthworks employs a talented team of experienced and certified landscape technicians. Below are some of the important steps our team will address to protect your trees: Root Protection - Watering is a crucial step. Prior to first ground freeze, our team will be sure that ample water is applied around the tree soil. After the ground freezes, it is not necessary to water and the water applied prior to the freeze allows the tree to absorb and retain lots of moisture. The second step is to mulch around the tree. Roots can be damaged if temperatures drop to low like 15 degrees Fahrenheit for example. Pugh's Earthworks will apply mulch where needed. In addition, during the sidewalk and road clearing process for deicing, they will take extra precautions to ensure road salt does not get into the area that could be absorbed by the tree roots. Salt is bad for the roots and if absorbed into the trees structure can severely stunt the tree or kill it. Wrap the Trunk - A unique problem is something called sunscald. This occurs when the daytime temperature is warm, but the nighttime temperature is freezing or below. This can cause damage to the tissue of the tree. Pugh's Earthworks will use a special commercial grade plastic tree guard wrap to protect your trees from sunscald. Another benefit of the wrap is that it keeps deer from damaging the tree trunk when they use it to smooth their antlers. There are lots of deer in the markets Pugh's serves. Pruning - Late Fall and Winter is a great time to prune trees. One thing you do not want is for ice to build up on weak or damaged limbs. They will surely snap under the weight of the ice and that can cause damage to the tree. The Pugh's Earthworks team will carefully examine each tree on your property and remove dead or weak branches that could be problematic during the harsh cold winter.   Shop Now for Gallery of Services     Pugh’s Earthworks is strongly committed to [...]
