Winter salt damage to your trees

Snow is not the only thing on the ground this winter. Along with the winter snow, road salt is also spread around this time of year. Trees located near streets, driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks are exposed to these deicing salts and can be damaged from excess sodium in the soil. A specific test provided by Wachtel Tree Science for soil sodium can indicate levels that are harmful for trees and shrubs. If you are concerned that road salt might be damaging your trees please give your certified arborist a call today at 262-538-1900
