Protect Evergreens From Winter Damage

Even evergreens can be damaged by frigid weather.

The cold St. Louis temperatures and dry air can pull the moisture out of the evergreen’s foliage.

This causes the plant to dry out and potentially turn brown.

To combat this, at Allen Outdoor Solutions, we recommend applying Transfilm to the evergreen plants and trees. Transfilm is perfect for protecting them all winter long.

This process will help hold the moisture in the foliage of the plant. If you have any questions about this process, please contact our office at (314) 647-4800.

“There is hardly a time of the year when plants do not suffer from losing too much water through the leaves or suffer from excessive transpiration. Antitranspirants such as Transfilm are applied to leaf surfaces to relieve the plant from water stress. Coating leaves with a thin film can provide a water-impermeable layer to reduce transpiration. Applications of Transfilm will coat the plant surfaces with a clear, glossy film that will decrease the rate of transpiration.”
