Whether you own a large property with lots of trees, or just prefer to have someone else attend to the one overgrown tree in your yard, a tree trimming service will handle the situation efficiently.
Tree trimmers — sometimes called "arborists" or "tree surgeons" — have the means to safely care for your tree or trees. They will have the proper equipment to get to the top of the tree safely in order to do the necessary work. They will have the knowledge needed to make your tree or trees more attractive, as well as assessing if there is a tree disease present.
Ideally, the trimming of a tree should occur in the late winter months when the tree is dormant. This will ensure that the wounds from trimming will heal better. While a tree is dormant insects will not be attracted to the open wounds on the tree, and the tree can properly heal before it starts growing in warmer months. This will encourage new growth in the spring, as well.
A tree trimming service will use a combination of ladders, pulleys, slings, and hoists, and can get to any part of the tree that needs trimming. They will also have the tools needed to properly trim the tree without creating unnecessary stress to the tree. They will use saws, trimmers, and pruners to take care of the overgrown and dead branches.
Trimming of a tree will help it grow in a more uniform fashion, making it more attractive. This will also allow it to grow in the direction it needs to grow in to promote growth. By trimming a tree regularly, it will also be protected from storms and high winds. Any loose or dead branches can easily be broken off in these situations, which could not only damage the tree but also damage your home or other structures near it. By removing the dead and loose branches, you are not only taking care of the tree itself but also the surrounding areas that could be damaged.
While trimming the tree, the contractor can usually let you know if the tree is diseased and often treat the tree for said disease. They can remove the diseased branches and provide a chemical treatment as needed to protect the tree itself from the disease, as well as surrounding trees from getting it.
Hiring a tree trimmer to do the tree work on your property will ultimately result in healthier trees and protect your property from damage caused by falling branches and disease spreading to other trees.
