The Many Wonderful Benefits of Tree Pruning
There are lots of great reasons to have trees pruned this year. Heavy crowns, dense branches, and overweight limbs make trees a big target for seasonal storm damage. When storms strike, Bradford Pear, Silver Maple, Birch, Arborvitae, and White Pine typically are hit the hardest with broken limbs, split trunks, and total tree failure. Ultimately though, all trees are at risk. Maintenance is far cheaper than cleaning up after a storm! Tree pruning and tree trimming involves everything from elevating lower branches and clearing branches away from houses, pools, driveways, and walks. Pruning trees will open up air flow and reduce the weight in the crown. Plus, pruning will help identify structural weaknesses.
Tree Pruning now will also reduce debris that makes a yard messy. Trees that drop fruit, nuts or other debris onto key parts of the property such as the pool area, roof, driveway and, patio are ideal for pruning and can keep the property clean.
Additionally, tree branches may be giving critters direct access to the house! Now is a great time to prune trees away from the house and shed to avoid access by squirrels and other wildlife to rooftops and attics.
Revive Trees with a Deep Root Feeding
Every tree benefits from a Deep Root Feeding! Like a vitamin for humans, trees need to be fertilized annually to maintain good health and fight off disease and insects. Homeowner’s should choose a tree care company that uses a time release fertilizer, so it will provide steady doses of nutrients all year long. With this boost, the tree will feed on the abundance of vitamins from the fertilizer rather than over tapping into its own nutrient reserves.
Plant a New Tree
Adding a new element, such as a healthy, new tree, will revive the property for sure! Here are some great reasons to plant a new tree:
- Replace a tree that has died or outgrown its current location and requires tree removal.
- Build a privacy screen or sound barrier
- Provide shade for a patio, porch or other area
- Add color with a tree that flowers or changes color with the seasons
- Create a focal point with a plant that has unusual branch formation, interesting bark or other characteristics
Location, species of tree, and how a new tree will balance the landscape are all important items to consider when planting a new tree. An ISA Certified Arborist should do a full evaluation of the entire property before recommending the best tree.
Revive the Lawn
Now is actually a great time to meet with a Lawn Care Expert to tailor a program for making the lawn healthy and beautiful this upcoming spring and summer. If a lawn revitalization plan is in place early, a Lawn Care Technician can target the best time to kick off the vital first treatments.
