TREE/PLANT/SHRUB RESCUE SERVICE

Cedars and other loose-growing evergreens such as junipers and arborvitaes can be permanently disfigured if heavy snow and ice accumulate on them. Snow, ice or strong wind bend the limbs downward, permanently disfiguring them. This can lead to disfigurement or even tree death.

Plants can suffer serious damage from harsh weather conditions if they are not protected. To protect their plants from frost, snow and wind, people cover or wrap them. But what about larger Arborvitae trees and shrubs? How should they be wrapped for harsh weather conditions? Can they separate over time? Let's find out.

 

Generally speaking, arborvitaes are pretty hardy, but they are susceptible to damage caused by harsh weather conditions and because most are multi-stemmed, they can separate on their own over time.

 

Your arborvitae likely took a lot of time and money to grow, whether you planted them for privacy or to improve the landscaping of your yard. We'll discuss the best practices for preparing and wrapping arborvitae so that they survive the harsh conditions unharmed. 

 

Wrapping your arborvitae is a good idea if you want to prepare them for harsh weather conditions. That’s why we recommend Bio-Wrap.

 

SYMPTOMS – LIMB SEPARATION

  • Meager stem growth caused by cold, wind and or cambium separation

  • Branches and foliage dying from separation

  • Reduction in size or die back

  • Poor response to adequate tree care

  • Environmental stress and pest problem vulnerability

 

SOLUTION – BIO-WRAP

Bio-Wrapping is a technique used to assist in alleviating limb separation. It reduces damage from excessive ice, snow or strong wind. The technique also aids greatly in promoting the formation of strong structural limbs.

Bio-Wrap, a time tested method of overcoming the stress trees face in unnatural or harsh environments that we force trees to grow in. Allows susceptible trees such as cedars, junipers and arborvitaes time to acclimate limbs with a strong taper.

ADVANTAGES OF BIO-WRAP

The process of Bio-Wrapping can accomplish several simultaneous goals for the structure, longevity and strength of a tree. 

 

  • It helps to prevent limb or whole tree damage or death. 

  • It gives more time for tree limbs to taper and acclimate to the environment.

  • It helps protect the trees that you already have.

  • Promotes health of the tree to stray off secondary issues such as insects.

  • Promotes natural limb strength during wet weather periods.

  • Minimizes root damage due to excess movement.

 

OVERALL PROCEDURE

 

Bio-Wrapping involves wrapping the multi-stem leads, bringing them back together without harming the tree or the environment.

PLACEMENT OF WRAP

Bio-Wrap is placed at approximately 2/3rds the height of the tree.

 

DIMENSIONS OF WRAP

Bio-Wrap is made from 1” biodegradable material. Can last up to 30 years depending on the size of the tree.
