Here’s Why You Should Never Neglect Trimming Your Trees
Proper landscaping serves several functions. First, it helps preserve the beauty of your property, adds curb appeal, and can even improve your home’s value. Secondly, it helps protect against property damage in storms and can protect against pests. Here’s why you should add regular tree trimming to your home maintenance schedule.
It Helps Your Tree Grow
Regularly pruning trees will help them grow fuller and more beautiful. Trees that are trimmed are more likely to withstand harsh weather, which can make the roots stronger. Regular maintenance also helps new branches grow.
Treatment and Prevention of Disease
Just like humans, trees can get sick. Tending to sick and dying branches will not only make your tree more beautiful, but it will also keep diseases and pests from spreading to the tree until it’s too sick to repair.
Reducing and thinning the canopies of your tree serves a couple of purposes. Firstly, it allows wind to move more freely through it, which reduces resistance and damage during storms with high winds. Secondly, it provides more sunlight to your yard and the younger trees and foliage below. You may also thin your canopies or prune to improve your vista, or view of the beauty around you.
Lastly, tree trimming is useful for the practice of tree training, or encouraging them to grow in a certain direction. For example, you may want to train a tree to grow away from your house, instead of toward it, where root damage may compromise your foundation.
Regular tree pruning is an essential part of home maintenance, as it preserves the beauty of your property and adds needed protection to your structures.
