Winterize Your Evergreens

Evergreens, especially newly planted ones, can be damaged by winter sun and winds, which dry the foliage. Shield them with burlap stapled to stakes set 6 inches away from the plants on all sides. You can prevent them from spreading or breaking under the weight of snow by tying sturdy string around them.
