The cold AM temps are causing the soil
to freeze and can damage grass and lawn
if you walk on the frozen lawn. Even in
Springfield at 4:00 pm, the shaded soil was
still frozen. IF the lawn freezes, try not to
walk on the lawn, walking on the lawn will
cause the lawn leaves to break; which CAN
cause lawn diseases.
Literature says that pruning below 32 degrees
can damage the limbs. In 44 years of pruning,
I had NOT seen any damage to tree fruits YET
that were pruned between 32 - 20 degrees F.
Be sure to make sharp,clean pruning cuts.
