Winter desiccation, also known as “winter burn” is a common plant injury which occurs once the amount of water lost by the foliage has exceeded the amount absorbed by the roots.

Symptoms of Winter Desiccation

Symptoms of winter desiccation include the browning and discoloration of leaves, as well as leaf spots.  These visible signs of damage are linked directly to harsh environmental conditions.  If the damage from winter desiccation is extensive, the tree or shrub’s leaves will drop.

You should consult with an arborist because . . .

Consulting with an arborist when mapping out your landscape can prevent a lot of stress.  Plant health care management is the key to cultivating a healthy and beautiful landscape.  Westchester Tree Life’s arborists know that great plant health care management includes multiple variables such as soil, tree roots, shrubs and bedding plants; all of these factors intermingle and compete for water and nutrients.  This is why lawn treatments, such as fertilizers and herbicides, can impact the appearance and health of your tree!
