Keeping Your Trees Healthy

When I first bought a new house, I realized that the front trees were a little overgrown. I was worried about a branch breaking in the wind and smashing into a window or the roof, and so I decided to invest in professional tree service. When the arborist came, he had more concerns than just a few overgrown branches. Apparently, a few of my trees had also developed serious pest infestations, and I was worried about what it might mean for their health. He carefully trimmed each tree to ward off disease, and within a few weeks, they were looking a lot better. This blog explains how a professional tree trimmer could help you, so that you aren't left with dying trees.

5 Sings It Is Time To Hire Professionals For Tree Trimming

Joshua Mercier

Trees are beneficial in many so ways. Apart from beautifying your outdoor space, trees create a relaxed environment that helps relieve stress and anxiety. They also boost productivity, cleanse the air of pollutants, and enhance curb appeal.

Unlike trees in the forest, those surrounding your yard need tree trimming. This is not just to make the place neat but because tree trimming can prevent the spread of disease from the affected part to other parts of the tree. Additionally, tree pruning helps prevent the branches from reaching the roofs or power lines, which can be dangerous. Now that you know the importance of tree trimming, here is when to schedule tree trimming services.

Traces of Broken Branches

If you notice branches falling off your trees by themselves, this shows something is amiss. Generally, this occurs due to strong winds or heavy rains and can be hazardous. Instead of assuming it is a natural occurrence, you need to take action. Sometimes these branches could fall off and cause severe damage. Therefore, it is advisable to schedule an inspection and tree trimming service.

Thick Branches

Thick branches block your view and prevent you from seeing the beauty on the other side. Sometimes you get used to it and go about your daily routine as usual. But this is a clue that something needs to be done. If the heavy branches fell off, you would face the consequences. Not only will you be forced to hire someone for tree trimming, but you will also add to the damage caused.

Weak Branches

It is not only the thick branches you need to worry about but the weak ones as well. They easily fall off, which can make your yard look untidy. If you find yourself continually picking up branches in your courtyard or cleaning your pool for the same reason, the solution is to trim the trees.

Weirdly Shaped Tree

If you notice a tree that looks odd among the rest, you can trim and bring it back to shape. The weird shape could be due to a disease or weak structure. The more it spreads to the rest of the trunk, the more likely it is that you will be forced to cut the whole tree down. Trimming can help remove the affected branches before the situation gets out of hand.

There Is Too Much Shade

You may have been too busy to note how shady your yard has been. If the reality has just hit you, it is time to schedule a tree trimming service. The reason is that the shades prevent ample sunlight from reaching the branches beneath. 

Tree trimming should be part of your tree maintenance routine. Even though you might not need the service regularly, the above signs should tell you when to take action.
