Wrapping Trees for Winter

wrapping tree

On occasion, the winter months bring us snow, low temperatures and high winds. Another problem is sun scald, which is the splitting of the bark due to exposure to higher temperatures immediately followed by freezing temperatures. These are conditions that can seriously damage trees. One solution to the problem is wrapping the trunks for winter.
