Is it time to Trim your Tree?




With the Spring and Summer months approaching, it is a good time to take stock of the trees around you and your property. Tree trimming and pruning tends to be a popular service for a number of reasons including:


Safety:


Overgrown or dead branches can pose a threat to people and property. Trimming and pruning can help remove these potential hazards and keep communities safe.


Health:


Trimming and pruning can improve the overall health of a tree. By removing dead, diseased, or damaged branches, the tree is better able to focus its energy and resources on healthy growth.


Appearance:


A well-trimmed and pruned tree can improve the appearance of a landscape and add value to a property.

Growth: Proper pruning can help trees grow into their desired shape and form, making them more attractive and functional.


Protection:


Trimming and pruning can help protect trees from damage during storms. By removing dead or weak branches, the tree is less likely to suffer significant damage during high winds or heavy rains.


Maintenance:


Regular trimming and pruning can help maintain the size and shape of a tree, preventing it from becoming too large for its location and potentially causing damage to nearby structures.



There are several signs that indicate it's time to trim a tree, including:


Dead or diseased branches:


If a branch is dead, diseased, or showing signs of decay, it should be removed to prevent the spread of disease to the rest of the tree.


Crowding or rubbing branches:


If two branches are rubbing against each other or growing too close together, they should be trimmed to prevent damage to the bark and potential weakening of the tree.


Overgrowth:


If a tree has grown too large for its location and is blocking sidewalks, streets lights, or views, it may need to be trimmed to reduce its size.


Hazardous branches:


If a tree has branches that are hanging over a house, power lines, or other structures, they should be trimmed to prevent potential damage in case of a storm or high winds.


Damaged branches:


If a tree has suffered damage from a storm, fire, or other event, it may need to be trimmed to remove broken or hanging branches.


Improving tree shape:


Pruning can also be done to improve the shape and appearance of a tree.
