Reasons for a Professional Tree Trimming
Tree trimming is one of the most common maintenance methods. Even if those trees that are in the forest can grow well with only nature’s care, trees used for landscaping require a level of care to maintain their aesthetics and structure. Trimming should be done if you have the experience, improper trimming can damage the trees further and even shorten their life. When proper trimming, there would be little to no issue with trees being infected with a disease, accidents, or even dying because of irresponsible trimming.
Reasons to Trim
Randomly trimming branches must be avoided because each trim has the potential to change how a tree grows. One of the most common reasons people trim their trees is to remove dying branches, reduce risks, and improve tree aesthetics. They should also be trimmed if it’s affecting the landscape below and allow the proper distribution of sunlight. In most cases, older trees are properly trimmed as a preventive measure.
When to Trim
Trimming is done because to remove weak, dead, or diseased branches. Trimming your trees can be done at any time of the year since it has little to no effect on trees on when it should be done. Although, as a simple rule, growth is maximized if the trimming is done before the spring season. This is to take advantage of how well plants grow during spring. Be very careful, because there are some tree diseases like oak wilt, that could spread from pruning wounds, which provide access to the pathogens.
