Are your evergreen trees looking more brown than green? When the ground freezes and evergreen trees are unable to replenish lost moisture, its needles dehydrate and turn brown or red. This “winter burn” usually occurs on the sunniest parts of the tree where moisture loss is greatest.
In many cases, your evergreen trees will bounce back come spring. You can prevent winter burn by:
• Watering your trees until the ground freezes over
• Applying mulch to the roots to seal in moisture
• Wrap trees in burlap
• Try an anti-desiccant spray
