Trees can add a lot of benefits to your property like privacy and shade. However, they also may require some maintenance or need to be removed. Luckily, a tree services provider can handle just about all your tree needs. If you would like to know more, keep reading.
You Need a Tree Removed
You may need a tree removed for a variety of reasons, including:
- The roots are causing damage to the foundation, plumbing, or another structure
- The tree is dying and/or falling over
- The tree attracts too many pests
- The tree drops too many leaves/fruit
- The tree is impacting your view
In addition, a tree removal expert can get rid of the stump. Stumps can pose a lot of problems as they slowly rot, such as attracting more pests. While you can dig out a tree stump, it's much easier to let a specialist grind up the stump into bark dust or kill it with chemicals.
You Need Tree Trimming
Even if you want to keep your tree, tree services can help. Trees need regular trimming to keep them looking good. With trimming, you can remove dead limbs and shape the tree. Trimming a tree may seem as harmless as cutting some hair but doing it incorrectly can damage the tree.
For example, if you cut the branch too close to the trunk, it causes irreversible damage, but if you cut too far from the trunk, you may not get all the decay. The decay could then continue to spread toward the tree's trunk. Plus, if you trim the tree too much during the growing season, you may starve the tree by removing too many leaves.
You Want to Save a Tree
If you have a tree that is starting to get sick, you may notice:
- Wilted/discolored leaves
- Lots of dropped leaves, needles, and/or branches
- Visible holes or wounds on the tree
Trees often get sick because of environmental changes, physical damage, and pests. If left untreated, the tree can even die. This puts it at risk of causing severe damage or injury if a large branch falls off or if the tree falls over.
A tree service provider can determine the cause of the sickness. Ideally, they can save the tree and get rid of the pests, but they can also let you know if the tree is too far gone to be saved.
If you have trees, you may need tree services. Even if you don't want to add or eliminate trees, you can hire a specialist to maintain your trees for you. If you would like to know more, contact a tree trimming service in your area today.
