ATLANTA, GA, June 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to Atlanta tree service Yellow Ribbon, the hot summer months can take a toll on trees, so it is important to take steps to care for them. Often people are unsure of how much water their tree needs, whether they should prune and fertilize or if they mulch their trees during the summer.

Mulching
Mulching is extremely important during the summer. It conserves water, allows water to soak into the root system and helps to stabilize the temperature. When placing mulch, keep it at least three inches away form the base of the tree. The mulch should be two to four inches deep to be effective. Inorganic mulches like stones should not be used. Instead, use wood chips, bark and other organic materials. They will retain water better, keeping the area moist.

In a very dry season, particularly in drought conditions you should not fertilize. Most fertilizers need water to distribute them effectively into the tree's root system.

Pruning
Major pruning should be done when the tree is dormant so that it has time to heal before spring and blooming. In the summer, pruning should be done with caution. You can direct growth by pruning in the summer, which is a slow growth period. If you are unsure about how to prune your tree, the Atlanta tree trimming business has experienced tree trimmers who know when and how to prune a tree properly.

Watering
Watering during the summer is very effective, but you may also have to water according to your area's seasonal water restriction policies. When you water, make sure that you are watering deeply so that the water gets to the root system of your tree to allow hydration. If you water often and in small amounts, you will have a shallow root system, which can affect the tree's stability. To get the maximum benefits from watering, do it late in the evening or early in the morning.

"Taking care of your trees during the summer is not that difficult. Just remember that they need plenty of water. If your tree is next to a sidewalk, parking lot or driveway, it absorbs even more heat. A great watering routine can help your tree grow strong and tall," explains Gary Robertson, Owner of Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts.

Taking care of your tree during the summer helps your tree to be healthier the rest of the year. Hiring an Atlanta tree service to maintain your trees is a step in the right direction. For more information about summer tree maintenance, visit http://www.yellowribbontree.com.
