When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?

Sometimes a tree gets to a point where trimming and pruning it are no longer adequate and it no longer fits in with your garden or it becomes necessary to have it removed before it causes untold damage to your property or injures someone. Some of the main causes for tree removal are

  • The foliage of the tree has lost its visual appeal due to disease, or bugs destroying its limbs and leaves.
  • Limbs, branches and leaves have grown too close to your buildings and are now blocking the sunlight from coming into your premises, and causing moisture build up on the walls and roof due to blocking the sun from them.
  • The tree has been battered by a storm and sustained some structural damage. The tree could now cause damage to your property or injure someone with falling branches or it could completely fall over, causing even more serious damage.
  • You are wanting to change the landscaped outlook of your garden and the old tree does not fit in with the aesthetics of your new look garden.
  • The tree’s roots are starting to pose a threat to your property’s foundation or to the underground pipe work.

Felling The Tree Yourself

Sometime people who have a tree that they want removing attempt to remove the tree themselves or they use unqualified contractors. Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous job and should only be carried out by tree surgeons because:

  • If the roots are not removed correctly then the tree can grow again.
  • Old tree stumps which have not been removed correctly are not just an eyesore they are also potentially dangerous.
  • Our tree surgeons know how to use the latest equipment to help them climb and access difficult areas.
  • Using the wrong tools or techniques when dismantling a tree can cause untold damages to your property or even severely injure someone.

Ash Juniper Trees

Although it may seem that spring and summer are the seasons when a lot of attention is paid to landscaping, winter can be quite beneficial to your landscaping goals as well. Harsh winter conditions may make for potentially unpleasant conditions in which to work, but the benefits from winter pruning are indeed noted.

Perhaps the most notable benefit of winter pruning is that trees are dormant during this time. Dormancy is a period in which there is no active growth of a plant in response to adverse conditions. Regarding trees, this is a means by which to survive the frequently adverse conditions brought on by winter, including snow or ice, frigid temperatures, and decreased precipitation. When a tree is pruned during the dormant season, the pruned areas tend to recover before new branch and leaf growth occurs in the spring. There is also less chance that the tree will wilt due to an excessive loss of water. This is because less water is needed and, therefore, lost when a tree is dormant.

The effects of winter pruning are frequently and especially visible when spring arrives. This is because pruning during the winter months fosters more vibrant springtime blooms from flowering trees, as well as more numerous and healthier fruits from fruit-bearing trees. Providing care to your trees during the winter can reap great benefits by springtime. An Austin tree trimming specialist can help you determine how best to prune your trees so that great results are achieved.

Another benefit of winter pruning is that by the time winter arrives, the tree has already lost its foliage. Without the leaves impeding view, determining which branches to prune becomes an easier process. When the crown of the tree is exposed, one can more easily determine which branches to remove or shorten. If present, dead branches can be more readily identified as such and removed from the tree. Of course, the likelihood of personal or property damage is lessened when dead branches are removed from a tree. Additionally, if proper care of pruning tools and equipment is taken, diseased branches can also be identified and removed. The chances of spreading the disease to other viable trees are decreased when pruning occurs during the winter months. Consult an Austin tree removal professional to help determine whether or not specific branches may need to be removed for the overall benefit of a tree.

There are considerable benefits to pruning your landscaping trees during the winter. With a little careful forethought and attention, there may be some spectacular results from all of your efforts when spring rolls around!

Tree Trimming And Pruning Myths

Trees can increase your property's value. In fact, properties surrounded by trees sell for 18-25% higher than those without trees. But aside from that, trees planted around buildings can actually cut air-conditioning costs by up to 50%. They can also generate jobs as well as contribute raw materials for buildings, books, newspapers and more than 15,000 other forest products.

Trees likewise provide shelter and food for wildlife like squirrel, bugs and birds while groves of trees will provide cover and food for larger mammals like deer and raccoons. Aside from that, hospital patients who have a view of trees often heal faster, leave the hospital sooner and use fewer pain medications as compared to those with a view of brick walls. Workers also become more productive when they see trees along their routes and from their office windows.

Indeed, planting trees can enhance your home landscape. Be reminded though that choosing the wrong tree can cause major headaches. Experts shared of the species to avoid.

Species To Avoid When Planting A Tree In Your Yard

Black Walnut - This is often grown for its edible nuts and shade; however its roots, buds and nut hull release a significant level of juglone, which is a chemical that will rob sensitive plants of require energy. If you plant garden vegetables like asparagus, eggplant, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, and rhubarb near this tree, they will be prone to wilting and death. It can also affect other plants like pine, apple and pear trees, blackberry and raspberry bushes, and petunias and lilies.

Bradford Pear - This is very sensitive to leaf scorch and fire blight. The biggest problem with this is branch splitting because they have a v-shaped crotch. It splits in half, most especially during severe weather conditions.

Ash - This is the target of a beetle known as the emerald ash borer or EAB. Though nibbling by mature EAB will hurt foliage, the worst damage often comes from its larvae that feed on inner bark. Hence, water and nutrient transport is disrupted. Leaf loss, heavy woodpecker activity, split bark and water sprouts are the signs of EAB infestation.

Ginkgo - This is also known as biloba, a tree that can reach 115 feet tall and are among the famous residential trees because they are very durable. Problem might arise in late fall if female trees will produce a putrid-smelling fruit that will stick to shoes and can be tracked indoors.

Sweetgum - Though this is beautiful during fall, its spiny brown balls is its major drawback. These gumballs can cause injuries.

Planting the right trees can be very helpful in making your property more valuable. Consider investing in reliable tree care services to make it healthier and more beautiful.

A Tree Stump Removal Chemical Can Save You Money

Most people hear about tree trimming and pruning and they think they are the same thing. However, the professionals that work in the field know that is not the case. There are different procedures which are used for each one of those things. Both pruning and trimming are extremely important to the life and look of your trees because they help with the health as well as to give a warm feeling to your home. Tree trimming is mostly like grooming or maintenance in that it will focus mainly on the tree's outer appearance. When you are looking to shape your trees in order to make them look better and take out the branches that seem out of place, you are thinking of trimming. Tree pruning, on the other hand has to do mostly with the overall health of the tree.

More On Tree Trimming

Tree trimming services may be about grooming your trees but you should not think of it as something that just anyone can do. Though the trimming services will have to do more with appearances arborists will be able to look for other things that may need care in your tree. If a branch is too heavy, for example, they will remove it for safety reasons and work the trimming around those removed branches. They will also be able to find early signs of disease and while they will not be taking care of it while trimming, they will inform you of the problem so that you can hire the pruning service.

More On Tree Pruning

As stated earlier, tree pruning services are mostly for the health of your tree. If a problem such as an infestation can be taken care of without the removal of branches, then arborists will do that. If the removal of leaves and branches is necessary then it will be done in a safe manner, trying to save as much of the tree as possible. The professional doing the pruning will be able to see how bad the problem is and how drastic the measures taken should be. While in most cases there will not need to be an extreme pruning done, it all depends on how advanced the problem is.

When To Get The Services

If you require tree trimming or other similar services, it is important to know when you should get them. Trimming can be done in the late winter and early spring so that the trees flourish and look great by the time the summer comes around. Pruning, on the other hand, is best left for the middle of the winter as it is a lot easier to look at which branches should be taken care of. Because the temperatures hardly ever reach freezing in the area, the appointments for pruning are almost always kept. The amount of time spent on your property by a professional will depend on how big the property is and how many trees need the service.
