Trees can make the outside of your home beautiful. Having trees in your yard may create opportunities for a shaded lounge area, a place to hang a tire swing and somewhere to build a tree house. As much as trees can add to your property, maintaining them is an important step to helping protect your property and home!
Why Do It?
Trees need to be trimmed or pruned regularly, and sometimes branches must be cut off to help ensure the health of the tree and your family’s safety. There are many reasons tree trimming can be a vital part of yard maintenance. Trees need to pruned first for safety, next for health and finally for aesthetics. Let’s look at each of these benefits:
Safety: Removing branches that may cause damage to property or people if they fall can be a primary reason for tree trimming.
Tree Health: Cutting dead or diseased branches may help benefit the overall health of the tree. In addition, pruning may also encourage trees to develop stronger core structures to help withstand the elements.
Aesthetics: Trimming a tree may help accentuate its physical appearance and improve flower or fruit production.
It is suggested that you prune or trim trees once per year during the dormant season though circumstances such as these may prompt an immediate trimming:
Overall, yearly tree trimming may help ensure your yard may be beautiful and safe for years to come.
