Managing trees in winter

Winter in Adelaide brings wet and windy weather that can be both a blessing and a curse for large trees. The added mass of moisture that collects on the fruit and foliage, as well as gusty, unpredictable winter winds can be a trigger for limb failures.

Having your trees inspected for structural defects, over-extended or end weighted limbs, and identifying the high use areas and venerable structures, are critical factors in planning a long term management strategy to protect against extreme weather events.
