Making Your Trees Like New

When I moved into my house, I noticed that there were a few trees that were significantly overgrown. I knew that I had to do something to make things right, so I started looking for tree trimmers in the area with the kind of experience I needed. I worked with them to figure out what needed to be done, and after they offered a fair quote, I had them begin work. The difference they were able to make was amazing, and I was really impressed with their contribution. This blog is here to help people to make their trees like new with the help of a professional arborist.

Three Major Benefits of Regular Professional Tree Trimming

April Reyes

Tree trimming is a serious job, and getting it done right will keep your trees beautiful and free of disease, as well as keep your home safe. Professional tree trimming can also help keep pests out of your home and catch signs of disease and infestation before they become unmanageable.

Keeping Your Trees Healthy

Trimming trees is valuable for more than just keeping them looking good. Trimming can encourage new growth, get rid of any dead branches, remove signs of disease before it has a chance to spread, and prepare trees for the transition between hot and cold months.

When it comes to keeping your trees trimmed properly, professional help is invaluable. Different species of tree may need to be trimmed at different times of the year, and for different purposes. A professional can also help make sure your tree is trimmed in a way that keeps it safe and encourages growth. Over-trimming can leave your tree weakened and more susceptible to pest infestation or disease. Individual trees have specific needs and can be impacted based on where they're planted on your property, how old they are, and what purpose they serve. Professionals can make recommendations as to how to take care of your trees throughout the year.

Pest Control

Trees provide a home for all sorts of creatures in your yard, but if they aren't properly taken care of, they can also provide an easy path for pests to get into your home. Many preventative pest control measures can be taken by having the perimeter of your home sprayed with pesticide, but if any trees on your property are touching your house, whether it's the walls or the roof, this gives pests a way to bypass these preventative measures. What's more, branches and leaves scraping your house can damage windows and roof shingles. Keeping your trees trimmed not only keeps them healthy and looking good, but it can be a major factor in keeping annoying and potentially harmful pests outside where they belong.

Catching Potential Problems Early

Trees are sturdy, but when they become weak, they can pose serious risks to your home and to yourself. More importantly, trees don't always show signs of weakness, disease, or infestation outwardly until they're pretty far along, at which point the risk of falling or leaning is already high. Many diseases and harmful pests, especially those that attack a tree's roots, will start rotting the tree from the inside out, which is part of what makes problems hard to spot. Some signs of these issues are a sudden growth of mushrooms at the base of the tree, wilted leaves, and stunted growth. Because of this, it's vital to catch these problems early. Professional tree trimmers know the signs of danger and can stop a disease or infestation before it gets too far. Even in cases of diseases like root rot, trimming can help save trees that are only moderately affected.
