Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care believes Colorado could be less colorful this Spring. Drought has been followed by April’s record-setting freezes in Denver, Fort Collins and along the Front Range.
“Many Colorado plants and trees are cold hardy to 15 degrees Fahrenheit,” said Tom Tolkacz, Swingle owner and CEO. “However, Denver experienced temperatures as low as 6 degrees at the Denver reporting station. Uneven snow cover limited protective insulation, increasing exposure and risk of damage to annuals and perennials.”
Some shrubs and fruit trees, Tolkacz warned, that had leafed out prior to the early April freezes may lose those leaves. While most will leaf out again later in Spring, some trees and shrubs that normally flower and produce fruit in the spring may not do so in 2013.
Colorado homeowners and commercial property managers should:
“The drought, water restrictions and late-season freezes have created a unique challenge for Colorado landscapes,” said Tolkacz. “Now more than ever, we advise bringing questions about lawn, tree and plant health care to people and companies based in Colorado.”
