Protect Against Rock Salt Damage
Protect your trees from unnecessary damage and rethink your approach to salting to driveway and sidewalk. Yes, salting increases safety by melting ice but rock salt (sodium chloride) can:
• Cause salt burn, dehydration, leaf burn, or
• Inhibits a tree roots’ ability to absorb water, oxygen, and nutrients
Instead of rock salt, consider calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, potassium chloride, or other plant friendly deicers.
