Are you prepared for stormy weather? Central Florida gets its fair share, including the occasional hurricane. Learn how to prepare your yard for storms, and when to call an expert for cleanup.
The Orlando area gets its fair share of stormy weather. While you may take every precaution securing your landscaping before high winds and rain hit, you may still have damage after the storm passes. Learn how to clean up after stormy weather, and when to leave the clearing to an expert.
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.
Just like humans, Central Florida trees show signs when they are unwell. Where we may sniffle or run a fever, trees can drop leaves, get root parasites or develop stem cankers, depending on what’s wrong.
McCullough Tree Service handles tree-pruning services and gives pruning estimates all over Central Florida. Did you know that there are different degrees of pruning? Some are more complicated, others are more trimmed-down in scale.
One of the many reasons to hire an expert when it comes to tree pruning or tree thinning is the tendency for non-professional tree crews to over-thin trees. We see it often here in Central Florida when a customer has had another tree service on their property. Over-thinning is also referred to as lion’s-tailing (like the shape of a lion’s tail, thin and then puffy on the end). It can weaken your tree’s branch structure. As a property owner, it’s important to ensure you have experienced, professional tree technicians on the job.

The 2018 hurricanes have their official names. Depending on the severity, you may be hearing a lot more of the names Chris, Debby, Oscar, Gordon and others, or not, depending on how the seasons pans out.
Here at McCullough Tree Service, we get lots of questions about trees, regarding their health, maintenance and removal. Palms, such as Sabal palms — the official tree of Florida — are often a topic of discussion with our customers; Sabals seem to be everywhere, after all.

Did you know trees can get a sunburn, too? Sunscald is a real danger for trees exposed to direct sun day after day. Once damage happens, there is no way to reverse it, so it is important to protect your trees before it is too late.
