February has been a rather snowy month. It seems we have not had any large amounts of snow at one time, but several snowfalls of 2-3 inches. All that accumulation has made for a snow pack of approximately a foot at our tree farm. During the winter months it is always a good idea to get out and knock the snow off your evergreens periodically. Snow can get heavy on the branches & can cause damage to the trees. It is best to remove the snow soon after a snowfall because as temperatures fluctuate, the snow can partially melt and refreeze on the tree, making it difficult to remove.
Some positive signs of Spring is on the way is the average daytime temperature is 30 degrees F. Daylight is also getting noticeably longer.
With Spring coming near, it is a great time to start planning those outdoor projects. Arbor Hill Tree Farm will once again be exhibitors at the Minneapolis Home & Garden show at the Mpls Convention Center Feb 27-Mar 3. We are at booth number 726, located in the Lawn & Garden area.
