While enjoying the winter months to come remember to protect your plants from snow damage. While the big, white, fluffy snowflakes fall and attractively add inches to your railing, fence posts and arbors, remember to shake trees and shrubs to shed the extra weight of the snow. Branches that are left unattended can split or be torn from trunks leaving your landscape plants susceptible to disease or death. Simply watch for plant stress, bowing branches or trees leaning from the weight of added snow and shake free immediately.
