ATLANTA, GA, February 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In severe weather, it is possible for trees to freeze. This occurs more commonly among citrus trees because they grow year-round.
Most trees in colder climates protect themselves by dropping their leaves and becoming dormant for the winter. When a tree loses its leaves, this helps to conserve moisture for the trunk and roots. Because citrus trees grow year-round and retain their leaves, they are prone to frost damage and must be protected during severe weather. Your local tree removal company in Atlanta can recommend the best way to protect your trees.
When the temperature rapidly drops and the moisture in a tree freezes, the tree can crack. Water and sap expand when they freeze, which can split the bark open or even cause larger branches or the trunk to explode.
Another problem is late-season freezes. When the tree thinks that winter has passed and begins to push out leaves and a late freeze hits, the tree can become severely damaged. If a late freeze is predicted, take special care to protect trees and other shrubs.
"As winter progresses, inspect your trees for damage or signs of problems. If you see something that concerns you, call your Atlanta tree removal company to evaluate the situation and make a recommendation," says Gary Robertson, Owner of Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts.
