      Icy winter conditions increases the use of salt to melt ice on roads and sidewalks, which can lead to damage of ornamental plants adjacent to these areas.

When salt dissolves in water, the sodium and chloride ions separate. When this happens, the sodium ions in the saltFile Size: KB.

    After 7 days of spraying with de-icing salt, all plants are dry. The dry rate represents the damage of the final de-icing salt to the plant. As shown in Figure 7, the plants sprayed with 10% concentration of calcium magnesium acetate, magnesium chloride, and calcium chloride have lower dry rate than those sprayed with sodium chloride. Therefore Author: Guoju Ke, Jun Zhang, Bo Tian. Preventing salt damage. Do not plant trees and shrubs in areas where salty runoff collects or close to streets where salt spray is prevalent. Burlap barriers may provide protection to some plants from salt spray. Avoid or reduce the amount of de-icing salts used on walkways by clearing areas of .
