You bet it is…heavy snow in Northern Nevada will hit periodically this winter. How does it affect the trees and shrubs on your property? The frequency and severity of winter damage is determined by a number of factors, including the plant species or the location and conditions under which the plant is grown, and when there are weather extremes during the dormant period.
The branches of many hardwoods may be seriously damaged in ice storms. Improper removal of ice or snow from the tree or shrub might increase damage. Heavy snow should be removed gently before it freezes to limbs and branches. Removing ice encased on branches can cause additional damage and should not be attempted!
