I always thought that the evergreen trees were designed to withstand harsh winter weather. Yet here we are protecting trees by wrapping them with burlap type of material.
Now reading more about it it all makes sense. Even just heavy snow fall can damage tree branches by bending them too much. Wind burn is another factor that can injure these trees especially when they are a new transplants.
You can see these wrapped up tree mummies driving North on Yonge Street just pass St. John’s sideroad or Hadley Grange retirement center, East side.
They look like mummies, but I really should not call them that as the mummy
refers to humans and animals and not plants.
