Want to keep your landscape looking attractive and beautiful? A good way to take care of tangled, unruly branches is to keep up with trimming. From tall to short trees or bushes, maintaining pruned and trimmed bushes and trees keeps them growing and extends life. Tree pruning and trimming helps remove unwanted dead or broken limbs and leaves your trees looking fresh.
You may think that all it takes is a few tools to cut some branches here and there to make your trees look good; however, there's actually a lot more that goes into the care and maintenance of tree trimming.
For example, if a tree is pruned in the Springtime when new leaves have just come in, this early pruning could be damaging to the tree. This causes the tree to weaken. To prune for good structure it is best to trim the tree after the leaves have fallen, and all the branches can be easily seen.
A few reasons a tree may need pruning are:
1. To thin the crown of the tree to provide better growth and allow for more circulation.--Thinning the crown for more circulation gives the tree more room to breath and flourish. Our trained arborists are experienced in following proper techniques to thinning tree crowns to promote a healthy growth.
2. To shorten the height of a tree, especially if the branches are dangerously encroaching upon power lines.--Our experts have the knowledge and proper equipment to deal with these types of situations. Some might think that the way to shorten a tree is by cutting off the top, however this can lead to permanent damage or disfigurement. It is important to make sure not to plant trees that will grow too tall for it’s surrounding environment. This type of information is helpful to know before trying to take care of the trimming on your own. Call Katy Tree Service for a consultation today!
3. To remove branches that are hung too low, causing the tree to look unkept and unruly.--A lot of times tree branches can grow wildly across the fence into your neighbor’s yard, throwing debris across the fence and causing upset neighbors. Let Katy Tree Service give your yard a clean up—you’re neighbors will thank you for it! In addition, getting rid of the low hanging branches over your fence will prevent any tree damage from occurring to your fence during stormy, windy weather. If you have trees that grow along the roadway of your home, it is important to pay attention and trim any low hanging boughs of branches. These might obstruct roadway signs, or even hang so low that it becomes a nuisance to pedestrians walking along the sidewalk in front of your home. But don't just start trimming away at loosely hanging limbs, there are certain precautionary measures to follow in order to ensure proper and safe trimming for you and your tree! Rest easy knowing one of our professionally trained arborists knows how to assess the situation, and get the most out of trimming to keep your tree healthy, free-flowing, and thriving.
4. Another reason a tree might need pruning is to remove branches that have been infected with disease, or damaged from major storms or high wind. Diseased trees can affect surrounding growth if not treated effectively and in a timely manner. Spotting an infected tree is fairly simple. Some diseases are easily noticeable just by looking at the bark of the tree. Detecting the type of infection and proper treatment can take a little more experience—that is where we come in. If you happen to notice strange growth or rotting bark call one of our experts! We will gladly research and determine the type of disease the tree is infected with, and show you the proper steps in order to be rid of the disease for good! If your area has just experienced storm damage or fallen branches from high winds, it is imperative to take care of the fallen tree remnants quickly. Failing to do so, and leaving the fallen branches on the ground overtime can attract insects such as termites. Termites should be dealt with as soon as they are discovered. They thrive in nests that amount up to hundreds of thousands and if not controlled can quickly infest close buildings, homes, or other landscape.
