Young Tree Maintenance

If the tree is staked, make sure the ties aren’t too tight. All stakes should be removed for trees that are older than two years. Pull any weeds out from around the base, add a layer of mulch and water moderately. If the tree is close to a street, driveway or area where snow is piled up in the winter, make sure it is sufficiently protected. The weight of the snow can create tiny cracks in the trunk that can lead to longer-term damage.
