The Differences between Evergreen vs. Deciduous Trees

Helpful Advice for Choosing the Right Plants and Trees for Your Outdoor Space 

When it comes to choosing plants and trees for your yard, it’s important to consider including evergreen or deciduous plants based on the intended purpose. Not all greenery functions in the same way, and one of the biggest differences between evergreen and deciduous trees involve their foliage and how they adapt to different seasons. For instance, evergreens do not need to drop their leaves in order to conserve water during certain periods of the year, whereas deciduous plants will drop their leaves and remain dormant in the winter to reduce water loss and ensure they survive the cold weather season.

4 Christmas Tree Safety Tips  

Christmas trees are a perfect addition to any home during the holidays. Each is beautiful and unique, but a decorative tree can pose a serious risk if you do not follow proper precautions during set up. Here are a few safety tips for this holiday season:

  1. Buy Fresh Trees: When shopping for a Christmas tree, select one that is green and fresh. Look for a pine or spruce tree because they have flexible needles that bend, not break. In addition, needles that are hard to pull off are indicative of a fresh tree. Finally, inspect the trunk and ensure that it is sticky with sap. A fresh tree is less likely to become a fire hazard. If you are buying an artificial tree, look for a “fire resistant” label.
  2. Tree Placement: Once you have selected the right tree, cut off roughly 2 inches from the base and place it in a secure, water-holding stand. Make sure you keep water in the stand at all times to prevent your tree from drying out. Avoid placing your tree near fireplaces, radiators, or other sources that emit heat. Do not place your tree where it blocks doorways or exits.
  3. Inspect Your Lights: For Christmas trees, only use indoor lights that do not emit heat, such as LED lights. If you are using multiple strands of lights, plug them into various circuits around your home so you do not overload a single electrical outlet. Check for broken sockets, frayed wires, and loose bulbs. Discard and replace any damaged lights immediately. Lastly, ensure that your Christmas tree lights are unplugged in the evenings before bed.
  4. Ornamental Attachments: Take proper precautions when hanging ornaments from your Christmas trees. Use a ladder or step stool for out of reach places in order to avoid knocking your tree over. Fragile ornaments should not be on the lower part of your tree where children and pets have easy access. Additionally, lighted candles or flammable items should never be placed anywhere on your Christmas tree.

Choose an experienced landscaping and tree service company for all your landscaping and tree needs.
