Trees are a gorgeous addition to any yard or lawn. Trees do a number of things for us. As well as being beautiful to look at, they can provide shade and cover during the hotter months of the year. In the autumn the leaves fall providing food and shelter for smaller critters. They can also add value to your property, especially if they are older trees that have been well kept for a long time. Regularly maintaining your trees is imperative to protecting the value of your property.
Why You Should Trim Your Trees
There are three main reasons that you might consider trimming your trees. The first is for the health of the tree. By periodically trimming off dead branches, new life can bloom and the healthy parts of the tree can receive more water and nutrients. Another reason is for aesthetic reasons. Trees look more pleasing to the eye when they are uniformly shaped, so if you have many trees, you ay trim for this reason. Finally, and most importantly, it is important to consider trimming your trees to ensure the safety of your family and people who visit your property. If a dead branch happens to fall on your home or vehicle, it could cause serious damage and even injury.
It is recommended that trees are trimmed about once per year during the dormant season. This season will vary from species to species of tree, and our trained pros will be able to help you determine when the right time of year for trimming is for your trees. There are certain circumstances that may require trimming attention between these seasons. If a trees branches are beginning to obstruct the vision of pedestrians or drivers, if the branches are beginning to interact with power lines, or if the growth of the branches poses a threat to your home, you should consider trimming your trees sooner than later.
