Winter browning or winter burn of conifer (evergreen) shrubs and small trees around the house is best prevented by making sure the roots have adequate water late in the season. The browning, called desiccation, results from wind removing more moisture from the needles than can be replaced.
Browning or bleaching of evergreen foliage during winter occurs for four reasons:
- Winter sun and wind cause excessive transpiration (foliage water loss) while the roots are in frozen soil and unable to replace lost water. This results in desiccation and browning of the plant tissue.
- Bright sunny days during the winter also cause warming of the tissue above ambient temperature which in turn initiates cellular activity. Then, when the sun is quickly shaded, foliage temperature drops to injurious levels and the foliage is injured or killed.
- During bright, cold winter days, chlorophyll in the foliage is destroyed (photo-oxidized) and is not resynthesized when temperatures are below 28° F. This results in a bleaching of the foliage.
- Cold temperatures early in the fall before plants have hardened off completely or late spring after new growth has occurred can result in injury or death of this nonacclimated tissue.
Foliar damage normally occurs on the south, southwest, and windward sides of the plant, but in severe cases the whole plant may be affected. Yew, arborvitae, and hemlock are most susceptible, but winter browning can affect all evergreens. New transplants or plants with succulent, late season growth are particularly sensitive.
There are several ways to minimize winter injury to evergreens. The first is proper placement of evergreens in the landscape. Yew, hemlock, and arborvitae should not be planted on south or southwest sides of buildings or in highly exposed (windy, sunny) places. A second way to reduce damage is to prop pine boughs or Christmas tree greens against or over evergreens to protect them from wind and sun and to catch more snow for natural protection.
Winter injury can often be prevented by constructing a barrier of burlap or similar material on the south, southwest, and windward sides of evergreens. If a plant has exhibited injury on all sides, surround it with a barrier, but leave the top open to allow for some air and light penetration. This will also help keep the deer away from their midnight snacking when winter food gets scarce.

High winds and bitter cold wind chills are pounding the area. We have crews out responding to emergency calls for downed trees in Sherman and New Fairfield. Then we are headed to Ridgefield to remove storm damaged trees once the power lines are cleared. Be safe out there and stay indoors since there is a lot of falling debris from all the old storm damage thats still hanging in the trees.
We are here for any 24 hour storm damage needs you might have so don’t hesitate to call.
The Importance of Trees and Tree Care
Trees provide a multitude of often overlooked benefits to the citizens of Connecticut. Our forests and woodlands are valuable natural resources which produce oxygen, filter air pollution, hold soil from eroding, give food and cover to wildlife, and furnish fuel to heat many of our homes. In more suburban and urban situations, trees can provide the same benefits and, if properly located, can significantly reduce the cost of heating and cooling our buildings. In addition, some studies have found that well-landscaped yards with mature, healthy trees can contribute as much as 10 to 50 per cent to a home’s real estate value.
Although fairly self-sufficient, trees occasionally become diseased, grow old and decay, or experience damage due to storms or other types of environmental impacts. Sometimes they become too large or need to be removed for other reasons. When a tree is in trouble, an arborist is the person to call for advice and tree care services.
Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Correct and continual tree care is a growing concern and a wise investment since poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Trees that lack the necessary attention can be dangerous and may cause unwanted property damage. Because of the hazards of poor maintenance, these trees should be rehabilitated or removed by an arborist that is training and equipped to safely take care of the particular issue.
What Does an Arborist Do?
Arborists are tree care professionals who can help with the selection, maintenance, care and removal of trees and shrubs in residential, commercial and public landscapes. They are trained in all aspects of woody plant health and care, including diagnosis and treatment of diseases, insect infestations and environmental problems. They can safely climb up into tall trees to prune limbs, and will cut, chip and remove the brush. They can recommend watering, fertilizing, pesticide applications and other cultural programs to help maintain the long-term health and beauty of landscapes. Arborists are licensed by the State of Connecticut, and are required to stay up-to-date with the rapid advances of tree biology, care and treatment
