1) Have your trees assessed by an ISA Certified Arborist at the beginning of winter
2) Add an organic mulch like wood chips around the root zone to help retain moisture
3) Correctly prune dead or damaged limbs or where there are weak branch attachments
4) Never try to shake an icy branch or limb as you could cause more harm than good
5) After a storm or a cold snap, inspect your tree for frost cracks or damage to branches
