Winter Moisture Treatment

winter burn evergreens

Protect your evergreens from winter burn with our Winter Moisture Treatment. We apply a protective coating to the leaves and needles which reduces the amount of water that escapes from them during winter.

Evergreens including those with broad leaves (e.g., boxwood, holly, rhododendron), needles (e.g., fir, hemlock, pine, spruce, yew) and scale-like leaves (e.g., arborvitae, false cypress, juniper) are prone to the damaging effects of winter burn because their leaves never stop losing water, even during their dormant season. When leaves evaporate more water then the roots take in, you’ll see damaged foliage. Winter burn shows up as brown, red or orange, dry foliage or needles and becomes apparent as spring arrives.
