Why Should You Trim Your Trees
- Control how your trees grow
- If you do not have them trimmed and pruned, they can grow wild. Trimming your trees controls how the tree grows by removing unwanted branches, and shaping the tree. Uncontrolled branches can become entangled in nearby cable and electrical wires.
- Property value
- Proper trimming of your trees increases the value of your home, as it improves curb appeal. Trees not maintained cause concern and be an eye sore for neighbors and potential buyers.
Why do you need to have your trees pruned?
- Protect your home and property
- Tree branches may become weak or damaged, especially during a storm. These branches can break or fall damaging your home’s roof, windows, vehicle, or cause injury. Having your trees correctly pruned promotes growth and keeps trees healthy. Tree limbs that are weak, damaged, dead, diseased or infested may also need cut to avoid the risk of damage or harm. It’s important to make the right type of cut. Appropriate cutting techniques protect your tree, prevent new damage, and uninvited pest. Cutting to much off can even kill your tree. For these reasons, do-it-yourselfers should leave pruning to the professionals.
