While old oak and pine trees can be beautiful landmarks for your Florida property, proper trimming and tree maintenance is extremely important. Overgrown trees can affect the curb value of your home if you are interested in selling in the near future, meaning that professional trimming may be an important step in optimizing the appearance of your property. For those who don’t anticipate a move in the near future, it is important to realize that downed branches or trees can do serious damage during the Atlantic hurricane season. Regardless of your plans, it is important to assess the condition of your older trees to ensure that trimming occurs before spring growth commences.
Winter is the most common time for tree trimming because this typically allows a tree to go through a healthy period of growth at the beginning of spring. However, corrective pruning can be done during the summer to address unwanted branches when they are most visible. Fall is not an advisable pruning time because of the increased presence of fungi.
Although many homeowners enjoy putting their green thumbs to work as they care for trees and other foliage on their properties, an aged tree can be more difficult. In some cases, homeowners are not prepared to reach the heights of old oak trees. In other cases, there may be a lack of tools or strength needed to deal with larger branches. The busyness of life can also make it difficult to find time to handle the greater demands related to grooming larger trees. In such cases, it is wise to invest in the skill of a trimming service. This also makes it possible to learn more about any special needs of these older trees in terms of watering and nutrient supplementation.
