Pruning overgrown trees is about more than just making them look good. While the cosmetic reasons are important and definitely worth considering, pruning can also help improve the health and safety of your tree. Trust an arborist to inspect your trees for the best course of action; while other tree companies may be able to trim your tree to make it look good, an arborist’s unique background in tree science and botany helps ensure they prune the tree in a way that not only highlights its natural beauty and matches the landscaping of your home, but also guarantees the tree will stay healthy and safe for years to come.
There are a number of problems that can be solved by tree pruning, including taking out branches that rub together or interfere with the tree’s growth. Pruning infected limbs quickly can help stop the spread of disease and insect infestation. Safety concerns include removing limbs that are in danger of buildings, roofs, windows, wires, or more. This also includes dead and weak limbs that can easily break after one winter storm or gust of wind. Tree pruning can also be used as a preventative measure to lower the wind resistance and give the tree a better structure to withstand storm damage. Spending the time to have your trees pruned now can save lots of time and money down the road when issues arise.
Consider tree pruning an investment that not only improves your curb appeal, but also helps your trees stand tall and healthy for the life of your home. And with the expertise of a skilled arborist, you’ll know your trees aren’t just getting the cookie cutter pruning treatment, but are receiving individual care to best meet the needs of the tree variety, climate, location, and more. Once your trees are pruned, you’ll never look back!
