A beautiful landscape can not only increase the value of your home, but it can also provide great curb appeal. But, aside from aesthetic reasons, maintaining your lawn including trimming your trees is important and here we list the reasons why.
To promote proper tree growth
The overall health of the tree can be better after it’s been trimmed and pruned. Hiring a professional service is best because they know the proper techniques to use to enable to tree’s roots to grow stronger, which will make the tree healthier and when a tree is healthy it grows naturally and it’s able to withstand storms.
But trees aren’t the only ones that benefit from proper maintenance. Pruning and trimming shrubbery improve the health and strengthen the overall plant. It’s always better to trim or prune a young plant because it will be a preventative damage measure because it will require less corrective trimming as the plant matures. Trees or plants that have lost its shape can weaken and not be strong enough to support the entire plant. In this case, trimming is essential as the plant or tree can collapse.
In addition, any type of tree that produces fruit benefits from tree care and maintenance. By removing dead limbs, you’re promoting better health in the tree, since dead wood makes the tree more susceptible to insect infestation and disease, which we will cover more later.
To remove dangerous tree branches
If you live in Dallas, you know how severe thunderstorms can be and how much damage they can cause. For this reason, this is the most important reason to hire someone to trim your tree. If your tree is not property maintained, dead branches can fall very easily during high winds or storms and cause severe damage. In other cases we’ve seen other hazardous branches hanging over the roof of your home and ones growing into electric lines. And if the tree is extremely fragile, tree branches can easily fall even when weather conditions are ideal.
Aside from your family being in danger, the siding of your home can also be damaged from branches rubbing against it from harsh winds. Vines and climbing plants should also be trimmed regularly as they can grow underneath the siding and pull it away from your home’s structure.
To treat disease
As we mentioned earlier, trees may contract disease just like humans if not properly maintained. Through proper tree trimming and pruning, the disease may be treated and prevented from spreading. It’s easy for outdoor trees and shrubs to become infested from pests and insects and trimming helps keep them at bay. If the insects on your property are not controlled, they can spread diseases that will cause the tree to weak and increase the likelihood of dangerous falling branches. In addition, if the plants are close to your home, the insects or pests can easily enter your home.
In general trees are a lot like humans, they require basic needs such as good soil and water with some care and disease prevention. Without it, they can’t grow to their fullest potential and bare fruit accordingly. The good news is there are professional tree service companies that are willing and able to handle your tree trimming and pruning services for you so help is just a phone call away.
