There is something innately attractive and captivating about trees. If we have the privilege of having a beautiful tree on our property, then we will be the first to acknowledge how they enrich the landscape. They also attract lots of little friends that give us great pleasure to watch and listen to.
All of that said, like any other part of our garden, trees need looking after and careful management. Sometimes such a task is beyond our ability or circumstances to do ourselves. In which case, we may be thinking about using a tree service.
In this article, you’ll read about 5 things a tree service does, and what’s involved in tree maintenance so that you can make good decisions about the trees on your property.
1. Health Checkup
Trees, just like humans can suffer from poor health. A professional tree service will carefully examine your trees so that they can spot disease and treat it. That may mean cutting away diseased branches or limbs.
This can make the difference between keeping a tree for many years to come, or sadly taking the tree down. A diseased tree is dangerous as it could come down in a storm and damage other trees or things around it.
2. Trimming and Thinning
Often, this is the bread and butter work for many tree services. Like trimming any plants, this helps to make your trees stronger, more fruitful, and greener.
There are other practical benefits such as helping to create privacy in and around your property as well as managing the light and shade in areas of your garden. All this type of work is quite routine you’d be amazed at how easily accidents can happen. Some work you may attempt yourself but it’s always good to use a professional service if you feel unsure or lack experience.
3. Limb Management
Sometimes as your tree develops the growth can be asymmetric and put a destructive load on the bough of the tree. To alleviate this and preserve the tree you may need to use a professional tree service to create supports and braces for parts of your trees. This can help a tree to prosper for decades to come.
4. Tree Removal
If a tree comes down because of disease or a storm, then it will need cutting up and removing. If you have your own fire then you’ll want to cut the wood and store it for seasoning. A tree service will help you do this.
5. Stump Removal
There are lots of reasons why you might want to remove a stump. It can look unsightly and occupy a prime location where you want to plant another tree.
Removing a stump yourself will likely be either a disaster or hours of hard work. Far better to call in the people that know what they’re doing and get the job done as fast as possible.
