Trees are everywhere. They’re nearly as abundant as the dirt they grow from. Some are brand new while others have outlived generations of people. Though they can out live us, and certainly outgrow us, all trees require routine maintenance to help keep them happy and healthy. Without their routine checkups even the oldest most predictable trees may become dangerous. Here is a handy guide of the top five reasons you should hire a professional tree trimming company to care of your arborous friends.
1. To keep your tree healthy
Trees, much like people, get sick every now and then. However, with trees, limbs and even the very core of the plant can become diseased or even die. This can cause the tree to rot away, making the affected limbs or sometimes the entire tree to fall when it can no longer support itself. When caught and treated early, a professional trimming company can save the tree so it can thrive for many years to come.
2. To grow bigger, better fruit
Fruit trees, and you, can benefit from proper and well timed pruning. By pruning the tree in late winter you can allow for maximum sunlight and air to reach the lower parts of the tree, helping the plant grow bigger, healthier fruits. Professional companies will know when and how to prune your plant to maximize your harvest each and every year.
3. To improve your tree’s structure
Like Charles Darwin theorized, the natural world is based on the survival of the fittest. Your trees are no exception. Some trees may develop weak branches, or may grow an excess of limbs which leads to competition near the top of the tree, suffocating the center of the plant. Professionals who know what to look for can prevent this and help the tree grow healthy and strong.
4. To give young trees a head start
While they’re still developing, young trees can often lose roots, making them top heavy and causing them to move or shift. A professional trimmer will know how to balance a young tree, keeping it comfortably rooted in the ground. This will also help shape it for the future, making later trimmings that much easier for the sapling.
5. To increase the value of your home
Well trimmed trees and hedges can make any house look that much better, especially if you have a lot of them. Letting a professional trimming company transform your home from an unruly forest to a well maintained oasis can do wonders for its value. If you’re looking to move, proper landscaping can help up your home’s value. If you’re staying put, you can open up your home’s natural views and get that outdoor design you’ve always been looking for.
