Long Island, NY (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
Because of abnormal temperatures on East Long Island, many of the trees are in a state of stress and have possibly gone into a downward spiral of decline. Some symptoms appear immediately but others won’t appear until after 2 or 3 years go by. According to Sterling Churgin, a certified arborist and owner of Sterling Tree Service and Lawn Care, this is why deep root feeding for trees and shrubs should be a routine part of any Long Island tree care and lawn care maintenance.
"Caring for trees and shrubs after an extreme summer is important for many reasons," says Churgin, an expert in the areas of Long Island lawn care and tree care. "When tall pines and maples go into decline the root structure starts to decay. This creates a danger on residential properties where many of the recreational areas such as the pool or swingset, are surrounded by these tall trees." Another consideration is the unnecessary financial burden that is created by replacing or removing trees. Heavy machinery has to get into inaccessible areas, doing damage to the lawn, compacting soil which can kill other trees and often sprinkler lines or electrical lighting get ripped up. Not to mention the headache of contractors working for months and the unsightly holes all over the landscape. Just increasing water is not going to save these trees. It is important to replace nutrients and minerals that are being depleted.
