Trees are a valuable part of your home’s landscape. They provide environmental benefits, shade, and beauty. To keep them healthy, your trees need occasional trimming and pruning.

Improving Tree Health

Sometimes, the branches of your trees can become unhealthy. Branches on your trees can:

  • Decay from a dead branch
  • Get fungal infections
  • Get bacterial infections

To prevent the spread of disease and decay, these branches need to be removed. A professional arborist can identify problem areas on your tree and remove infected or decaying branches to keep the rest of your tree healthy.

Controlling Pests

Dead and dying branches are ideal habitats for pests. By removing these types of branches, you are also reducing the likelihood that your tree will have a pest infestation. Any infestation in your trees needs to be addressed or you risk damage from insects feasting and boring.

Removing Safety Hazards

Overgrown branches or branches that are weak present various safety hazards. Overgrown branches can intertwine and damage nearby power, cable, or phone lines. Weak branches can fall on anyone underneath without notice. Additionally, overgrown or weak branches can cause structural damage to your house. The safety hazard of trees with these branches is increased during intense storms, so it’s crucial to take care of them as soon as you notice them.

Saving Money

Investing in professional tree care can help you save money in the long run. Neglecting your trees can result in the need for emergency tree services. Additionally, damage to your property due to neglected tree care can result in large repair bills. While homeowners typically have insurance to help with this, you risk your claim being denied due to negligence if your trees aren’t properly cared for.

Enhancing Landscape Aesthetics

Trimming and pruning your trees can help improve the appearance of your landscape. An overgrown tree or one with decaying branches can be unsightly. Trimming and pruning enhances the tree’s shape and texture and makes it look more vibrant and colorful.

Encouraging Fruit Production

Some homeowners may have trees, such as lemon or pomegranate, that produce fruit on their property. Proper trimming and pruning can help encourage more fruit production. Additionally, because pruning enhances the tree’s health, it can also improve the quality of the fruit it produces.

Increased Sunlight Exposure

Trimming and pruning help increase sunlight exposure. While the shade a tree provides is beneficial, flowers, bushes, grass, and other plants around your home require a certain amount of sunlight to prosper.

Proper tree care is vital to keeping your home’s trees safe, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing. However, attempting to trim or prune trees yourself can be dangerous. Professionals have the skills, experience, and equipment to ensure your trees get the best care.
