Use Burlap to Protect Trees During Winter MonthsWinter conditions, including extremely cold weather and snow and ice, can cause irreparable damage to trees. The root systems of young trees can become disturbed by the cold nights followed by sunny days that freeze and then thaw the soil surrounding the trees.

The bark, especially of smooth bark trees, are susceptible to splitting due to those same conditions. Thin barked trees are also susceptible to sun scald during the winter months. That condition causes darkening and sunken areas on the bark. Burlap is a great material used to help prevent damage to your young trees.
