Do any of your evergreen trees look like these
above? This is winter burn and there is a lot of this on younger trees, after
the long, cold winter we have had. They are not dead so do not remove them even
if they have brown or no needles on the whole tree. To check to see if they are
alive, out on the end of a branch scratch the bark slightly with your
fingernail, it should be green and sappy if they are alive, and will be fine
when the new growth comes out.

Roots from a walnut tree only 6 months old,
the tap root has been cut in a process called undercutting. This is done
during July and the tree immediately stops all top growth and then makes many
lateral roots that are perfect for planting in the following spring. We do
this with most of our trees such as oaks, hickory, pecan, evergreens, and many

Remember that anyone can sell you a tree but if it does not survive
or grows poorly in your area you have lost more than the price of
the tree you have lost your time and that is something that cannot
be replaced, Thank you for stopping by and hope to hear from you.
