The Importance of Pruning Trees

Good Morrow Land Services LLC_February_The Importance of Pruning Trees1Early spring is the time of year when the weather starts to get nicer, when the sun stays longer in the sky, and when we all want to get outside and play. It’s the time when people start thinking about grilling and spending time with friends and family. It’s also the time of year when homeowners start thinking about getting their yards into shape.

With vegetation just coming back to life, early spring doesn’t seem to be the right time to prune trees, but if done right, it can actually promote the trees’ health. This can be done by removing dead or dying branches that were damaged or injured because of storms, disease, insect infestation, or animals. 

Tree pruning can help promote flower and fruit development. It can also be a good way to control the size and shape of the plant or allow shrubby evergreens to stay dense and well proportioned. Pruning is also a way to protect property and people. Branches that obstruct the view at intersections or could potentially interfere with overhead wires, street lights, or traffic signals should be removed. If there are weak branches that overhang the house, sidewalks, or parking areas, these should be pruned to prevent them from falling and causing property damage or injuring someone.

Pruning during the early spring makes it easier to see exactly what needs to be trimmed. With buds just forming on the trees, the dead branches are exposed instead of being hidden by excessive foliage. Early spring trimming also means that it’s possible to avoid certain diseases and physiological problems that could arise.

When it comes to tree pruning, it’s important to hire a tree pruning service that you can trust. The best lawn care companies have reputations for providing excellent service when it comes to various landscaping needs. They are professionals when it comes to tree pruning, tree trimming, tree shaping, and other landscaping services.

They are also committed to customer satisfaction and believe in making sure their customers are happy and satisfied. Trained professional crews provide services that are dependable, prompt, and done courteously. They are also insured for their clients’ protection.

Having a well-maintained and manicured lawn adds to the value of your house, both aesthetically and to the property value. You can enjoy spending time in your yard and making sure it’s well taken care of.
