For thousands of years, humans believed that we were the only intelligent beings on the planet. Animals were thought to be strictly instinctual. People thought plants were only here for our benefit. Because we didn’t understand their language, we had no idea that an entire world existed that we weren’t privy to. It turns out that there is a secret life of trees. A world wide web right underneath our feet. In forests, when a tree is ill, the same species will send it sugars and vital nutrients. By keeping each other alive, they make sure we thrive via photosynthesis.
Did you know that your tree consumes about 2000 liters of water annually? San Antonio doesn’t receive a lot of water. The most we might get are a few inches in the spring, early summer and October. Beyond that, it’s up to humans to care for trees in urban environments. Trees in forests fare well on their own. In the urban jungle they have to fend for themselves. They are often the only tree in a yard. When they have company, it’s not likely that its of the same species. San Antonio Landscaping provides tree care by making sure your plants are properly hydrated.
Trees are like elephants in that they have tremendous memories. If a tree doesn’t receive the nutrients it needs in the previous year, it will limit its growth the following year. Trees will not blossom as expected when it spends most of its energy trying to survive. Once the soil is enriched, the tree now has the freedom to blossom unadulterated. Your personal landscaper will test the soil and inspect your trees. If necessary, she will apply organic fertilizers to boost the nutrient content in the soil. Mulching is another vital technique used to enrich soil.
Trees are the oldest living organisms on the planet. It is imperative that we care for them and protect them as much as possible. Plants large and small convert sunlight into oxygen via the photosynthesis process. One tree can provide enough oxygen to support to adults. When sunlight is blocked the photosynthesis is curtailed. As attentive landscapers, we ensure that your trees have adequate access to the sun. We trim trees in a manner that allows each leaf to soak up the sun. Tree trimming is also important for greenery living at the base. Our goal is to provide a balanced environment for your vegetation.
Pruning, Mulching and Root Care
San Antonio Landscaping cares for your tree from top to bottom. The leaves, trunk, limbs and roots are well tended to by experienced arborists. Pruning is an activity that should be conducted every 3 years or so. The exception is if the branches are dangerously near power lines or other valuable property. Mulching serves many purposes. It can beautify your garden while providing minerals. As it decomposes, vitamins seep into the ground’s surface. Mulch is a great insulator. It keeps trees warm in the winter and hydrated in the summer. Our team will avoid using harsh pesticides in an effort to protect your tree’s roots.
