Whether you’re a city dweller or a country bumpkin, there’s a good chance that you have at least one tree on your property. Properly maintained trees can add beauty and a touch of class to any landscape. On the other hand, trees that are not properly maintained can just end up looking scraggly and unkempt.
Regular trimming is often necessary to keep the trees on your property looking their best. Aesthetics is one of the primary reasons why most homeowners seek out a pruning service. Periodic trims will keep rogue branches from shooting off into random directions, making them less likely to grow out of control. Here are a few other reasons you should invest in a qualified cutting service:
Pruning Can Keep Your Trees Shaped
Shaping your trees will not only make them look better, but it can also help you control the shade and sunlight on your property. Thinning out certain branches in a tree, for example, can allow more sunlight to filter through the branches. We may even suggest a tree trimming technique known as crown raising. This involves removing the majority of the lower branches of a tree, which eliminates obstacles and obstructions. When a tree trimmer removes these branches, it allows people to easily pass under the tree. For trees next to roadways, it also provides a clear line of site for drivers.
Prevent Property Damage and Injury
While routine trimming is usually recommended once or twice a year, some property owners may find that they will need to trim their trees more often than this. Genesis Tree Service recommends pruning to remove dead or diseased branches. These branches can fall and damage your home or possibly injury you or your family. Whole trees can also fall, especially during high winds, leaving you with a seriously damaged home. Removing these hazards with tree trimming services can help prevent these types of accidents. Trimming may not be enough if an entire tree is dead or diseased, however, and removal is usually necessary.
Trimming Can Prevent the Spread of Disease
Just like you and your family, trees and other plants can get sick too. Some tree diseases that start on small branches can quickly spread to the rest of the tree and possibly kill it. Tree diseases can also spread quickly to other trees and plants in the area, and this type of epidemic can kill several trees in the area. To prevent disease from spreading, we can take preventive measures. This type of tree trimming usually involves removing any diseased portions of a sapling.
