Summer is around the corner, so this is a good time to think about having your trees trimmed. Landscaping trees add beauty and value to your property, and maintenance is essential to protect that value. If you’re tempted to skip regular tree and hedge trimming services, Heaven Contracting say you should take a moment to consider all the reasons you shouldn’t.
Trimming is like a much-needed haircut, one that enhances the tree’s natural shape. Thinning out limbs and cutting back unwieldy branches is beneficial because it improves the tree’s appearance. Similarly, densely packed branches can block sun and prevent rain from reaching the grass and flowers growing under trees, inhibiting their growth. Regular tree trimming can ensure that enough sunlight and moisture get through the branches. In addition, trimming can enhance your landscape’s appearance by removing limbs that obstruct your view of a lake, valley or other scenery.
Overgrowth negatively affects the health of a tree. Without trimming, trees can become weaker and will be less likely to survive. Trimming for tree health is often referred to as pruning, and it involves removing branches that are diseased, infested or interfering with healthy growth. Regular trimming keeps trees strong, creates a healthier structure and reduces the need for future corrective pruning.
Property safety is another important reason regular tree trimming is necessary.
Trees with dead, diseased or infested branches pose a significant risk. In heavy winds or a severe storm, the limbs can fall easily and damage your property and your home — and someone could get badly injured. The presence of hazardous branches is the most critical reason to get your trees trimmed periodically.
Professional standard tree trimming requires a thorough knowledge of tree growth needs, combined with meeting onsite needs. Intrusive branches need to be trimmed back, and in some cases may need to be pruned if tree growth is a potential risk to onsite safety or premises. Heaven Contrtacting’s services include expert tree trimming, hedge trimming, tree felling, tree pruning as required, and related arborist services if trees pose risks or are diseased.
