Selecting the Perfect Evergreen Tree

Choosing the perfect evergreen tree for your home begins with a healthy root system.  Because the root system is the tree’s main source for collecting and dispersing nutrients and water to the tree, it is vital to have a healthy root system.

Growth Rate

Once planted, a healthy evergreen tree can grow anywhere from 8-16 inches per year, though your evergreen tree may grow less the first year.  During the first year, your evergreen is establishing it’s root system into the newly introduced ground.  If you selected a healthy evergreen tree, your tree will have a healthy growth rate.

Protecting Your Evergreen

Westchester county’s tree care experts are here to keep your evergreens safe and healthy!

When food is scarce, deer, moles, and mice will eat any vegetation they can find, including your evergreen’s new growth.  Moles and mice attack from underground, eating the root system of your tree.  To protect your trees against deer, call Westchester Tree Life!  We can assess your trees and landscape and provide solutions to keep your trees healthy.
