What defines an Evergreen Tree?
Evergreen trees are plants that have leaves year round, making them always green. The term “evergreen” is often associated with pine trees, although there are many different varieties of evergreens, including spruce, fir, cedar, and many more. These trees can adapt to many different temperatures, including extreme highs and lows, as well as low-nutrient environments. Despite their natural adaptability to a variety of conditions and climates, however, evergreen trees require specialized care to promote proper growth and overall health.
Proper Care for Evergreen Trees
Evergreens can grow to a height anywhere from 10 to 80 feet tall, which means that pruning should generally be done by trained and experienced tree care experts. If you are wondering how to prune evergreen trees, an expert can tell you that it is important to remove dead, broken or diseased branches periodically. Sometimes, your tree may lose its leader (the topmost branch). In this cases, it is important to tie a nearby branch in a vertical position to encourage it to become the new leader and trim any surrounding branches to discourage “competition.” Pruning evergreens should be done in late winter or late summer, before or after the year’s new growth occurs.
