There are many reasons to trim your trees, but we’ll cover some of the most common reasons to trim your trees as we look at moving in to the summer months. Hiring a tree service to trim your trees has many benefits.
- You have an expert that evaluates your trees and prunes those trees in a healthy and responsible way.
- Our team cleans your property and will leave it better than we found it.
- There is no risk of injury. If you try yourself, you may fall, slip or otherwise injury yourself.
You can trim or prune almost any age of tree, even mature trees.
Reduce Shade and Wind Resistance
Here in the Southlake area, we experience high winds at different times of the year. Sometimes those are related to a storm, but other times, we just have windy days that produce high speed straight-line winds.
By trimming your trees properly the amount of wind resistance is lessened and the likelihood that your tree will be pulled out of the ground or experience damage is less.
With a tree trimmed, it also reduces shade that can allow sunlight for plants, grass and other vegetation below the trees. Allowing sun through is essential for plant life.
Removing Dead Branches
Sometimes wind or weight will cause a branch to break and be unable to receive the nutrients it needs to thrive. That branch eventually dies. As you know, with dead wood, it is more likely to break off in winds or a storm and land in your lawn, on your car, your house or even a neighbors property. Trimming your tree and removing dead branches is important for the protection of your home, property and your neighbors property. Your insurance company will even appreciate your attention to dead branches and consider it to be a reason why tree trimming is important.
Help Trees Grow
Pruning and trimming your trees allows them to grow and flourish. When your tree is trimmed properly, it provides a stronger root structure and can allow younger branches to grow. Once the tree is trimmed there are less needs to fill for the tree, so the nutrients and water it receives can then be distributed to a smaller amount of limbs, helping the newer or smaller limbs to grow faster.
