Trees are one of the most beautiful parts of your residential landscape, but they’re also the part that you may not think much about until a problem arises. If you haven’t included the trees in your seasonal lawn care program in the past, now is the time to step up your tree care routine with professional pruning.
5 Reasons to Prune Your Trees
- Improve the health of your trees. Regular trimming will eliminate diseased or dying branches while creating more open space between branches. Trees that receive routine trims enjoy improved airflow and absorb more sunlight.
- Strengthen and beautify by encouraging proper branch structure and root growth. Have you ever seen tree branches crossing over one another or growing at odd angles? What about large trees that get trimmed carelessly by the electric company because they’re interfering with power lines? All of these problems are corrected and prevented through routine tree care. Your trees will look well-maintained and healthy, and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your trees have strong roots and branches.
- Identify and treat diseases early. Tree diseases are just like human diseases. The faster you catch them, the easier they are to treat and the less likely they are to take a life. Your arborist is more likely to make an early diagnosis if they get to look at your trees up close through frequent tree care sessions.
- Minimize property damage and cleanup time after intense storms. Poorly maintained trees are more likely to drop large limbs or fall down completely when the wind starts to blow. Scheduled pruning will spare you the time that it takes to clean up the mess while limiting your risk of expensive property damage.
- Enhance your views. You don’t want to look out your window or sit on the front porch and stare at an overgrown tree. Proper trimming will make the tree a natural part of your overall view while opening up your horizon to surrounding points of interest.
Is Pruning Only for Old Trees?
Many homeowners assume that they don’t have to worry about tree trimming until their trees are old and visibly in need of attention, but younger trees are the perfect candidates for regular trimming appointments. The earlier you start training the branches to grow properly and looking for signs of disease, the more likely you are to enjoy a healthy, beautiful tree with a long lifespan.
