How can I prevent winter damage to my evergreens?

Winter damage to evergreens

In some colder zones, brown evergreens, needle tips and branch tips are seen in winter and early spring caused by drying winds, lack of snow cover, fluctuating temperatures, or low soil moisture. To reduce or prevent winter injury, water the root area of evergreens during dry fall and winter months. When snowmelt and rainfall are inadequate, apply water monthly during warm periods when the soil can absorb it. Apply mulch over the root zone to help conserve soil moisture and reduce loss from desiccation.
