We Dodged A Bullet

It looks like we dodged a bullet with respect to this winter storm, January 19 & 20, 2019. This particular winter event has changed and morphed many times in just the last 24 hours. Looks like now much of our area will be spared the heaviest snow and many of us see a long period of rain. Icing will be a concern as ice can bring down branches and power lines.

Ice does, however, encapsulate branches and plant material which protects them from extreme cold and wind, both of which can be damaging to plant material. With respect to wet heavy snow, you can look back to my blog, Heavy Snow Can Damage Plants March 10, 2018.

We have been working hard to save damaged shrubs.

Recent nor'easters have dropped a lot of wet heavy snow on shrubs and plant material. If you have any damaged plants, it is best to correct the situation right away.  You do not always need to replace uprooted or damaged plants,  often times,  we can save your damaged shrubs for less than the cost to replace them. 

We have been working diligently to correct the problems caused to shrubs in our Bergen County service area. We can help you too,  please call if you have any concerns about your shrubs damaged by the storms or if you would like to have Keep It Green Landscaping provide your pruning service this year.
