One of the most common questions I receive from a professional tree service company is, “Why is tree trimming important?” There are many reasons that it’s important, but I’ll give you one of the best reasons I know of: It saves lives. It might not be a popular reason for people (especially in the business), but tree care is an important job and people need to know about it. Tree removal can be dangerous, both during the actual cutting and when doing any repair to the tree afterwards. A lot of people don’t understand why tree removal is necessary or what its purpose is, but when you cut down a tree because it’s falling down and it could kill someone or damage property, you’re being very responsible.
The most important reason to have tree removal done by a certified arborist is safety. If you don’t have an arborist to do the work, then you could end up with dangerous branches or tree limbs falling on your property or other peoples’ property. Falling tree limbs and broken branches pose a hazard for hikers and people who walk or jog along the path. They could easily get caught under a fallen tree and injure themselves. Falling tree limbs also hit houses, cars, and sidewalks, and if those things were struck by falling branches or limbs it could cost a lot of money to replace them. It’s also illegal to cut down large trees without a license.
Another important reason for tree care is the structural integrity of a tree. Trees need to be walked around on a regular basis, and there are many different types of branches on trees that could break or fracture if they are not regularly maintained. A lot of older trees contain crowns and other structures that support the tree, and those are always in danger of falling and damaging property or even killing someone.
A healthy tree also has beautiful leaves and branches that add beauty to a landscape. If they are pruned too often, or tree limbs are cut down, it can affect the overall health of the tree. The health of the tree directly affects the health of the people living in the area. If a tree is unhealthy, it can make it hard to do simple tasks like cutting leaves or fruits from it, which could leave the local market without enough fruits or vegetables.
If you’re planning on tree trimming, you should be aware of what will need to be done to the tree, where the branches are located, and what conditions the branches are growing in. You should also be familiar with how trees grow, what conditions trigger growth, and how they behave once they’ve grown a certain way. This knowledge could come in very handy when you have a tree that needs trimming. It’s also important to know about how tree maintenance can help you save money by not having to purchase new trees every year.
There are several times of year when you may need to trim your tree. If the tree branches are growing in a direction that isn’t safe, or if they are already mature and causing a traffic hazard, then you should trim the tree. You should only trim a small portion of the branch and do so carefully. If the tree is too young or has just recently been trimmed, it may take some time for it to grow out of its problem areas, so you shouldn’t cut down more than one-third of the branch’s size at a time. If you trim too much at once, you may cause the tree to lose its balance and fall down.
