Trees add a lot to a property, both in terms of value and aesthetics, and if you’ve ever bought a tree to plant, you know that they represent an investment, too. Taking good care of your trees can prevent certain types of problems from occurring, and it can help them look beautiful as well.
Promotes Healthy Growth
A tree makes a certain amount of food to support itself. If it is sending food to branches that might not be very attractive or healthy, then it can’t send as much food to the areas that are actually thriving. Trimming trees removes branches that may be struggling or are getting in the way. As a result, the areas that are doing well can continue to do so, and they can really flourish. Further, new healthy growth has a chance to emerge. This process can increase the life expectancy of trees.
If you have fruit trees, like many people do in Santa Barbara, tree trimming is very important. Trimming trees results in growth of new spurs, and more spurs equates to more fruit in the future. By properly maintaining your trees, you’ll be able to enjoy bountiful harvests each year.
Addresses Safety Hazards
Trees can become safety risks if they’re too close to a property or driveway or if they’re diseased or damaged. A weakened branch or even an entire tree can fall at any moment, causing all sorts of damage as it heads toward the ground. To prevent this from happening, it’s a smart idea to trim or prune trees that aren’t doing well. Taking them down in a controlled manner is strategic, and our team at Economy Tree, Inc. could take care of that for you. If a branch is higher than you’re comfortable going, or if it’s near a structure or a power line, our team can easily handle the job.
Regular tree trimming, as mentioned above, promotes healthy growth. A healthier tree is much more fortified and has a better chance of surviving the high winds that we sometimes get in Southern California.
Reduces the Spread of Disease
Trees, just like us, can get sick. Diseases and infections or bug infestations can enter a tree and then spread from there. If you trim a tree and remove the sick areas, you can reduce the chances of the disease taking over the entire tree. With our trained eye, we can spot issues before they get too big.
Having a professional trim your trees is a way in which you can protect them. In addition to being stronger and healthier, they’ll be less susceptible to disease. At our company, we offer honest pricing, and we’re staffed by licensed and certified professionals. Call us today to set up an appointment or ask any questions you may have.
