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.
Regular pruning helps to improve the growth of a developing tree and it also corrects the shape of mature ones. Every cut that we make to a tree has a lasting effect, which can be good or bad. This is why a professional tree maintenance plan for your trees is a wise investment.

Tree Trimming And Pruning Myths
Experts performing tree pruning and trimming services make it seem easy, but there is so much more to it than just cutting here and there. While some tasks can be done on your own using your pruners and saws, most of them are best left to the pros. According to the experts, the right pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.
The terms trimming and pruning are often interchangeably used to denote cutting trees, but for clarification, just remember trimming has to do with grooming. Pruning has to do with the tree's health, as well as the safety of people and structures near the tree.
People have tree pruning and trimming services for four general classifications, two of which have to do with trimming and the others related to pruning. The first, trimming or fine pruning, entails cutting to improve the tree's appearance. The second, standard pruning, involves more cutting to improve the tree's structure.
The third, safety pruning or hazard pruning, is one where branches are removed because of safety considerations. When branches hang too low causing any danger, those trees are pruned. The fourth, crown reduction, involves removing the branches on the tops or sides of trees. This is usually done to prevent trees from reaching utility lines or damaging roofs, and to allow air and sunlight to reach the inner branches.
Pruning the Right Way
Tree pruning and trimming services, when done by trained professionals, ensure that your trees are pruned correctly and efficiently. If you intend to do the pruning on your own, refrain from using climbing spurs, which can damage tree trunks and barks. See to it that the barks on the edges of the pruning cuts are still attached firmly. As for large, heavy branches, make sure to cut them in sections to prevent the bark from tearing or splitting. Remember to use ropes to lower the large branches do not throw them to the ground.
Pruning the Right Time
You can have tree pruning and trimming services at any time of the year these services depend on the kinds of trees you have. Flowering trees that bloom in spring can be trimmed or pruned right after they flowering. Those that bloom in summer have to be pruned in early spring. It is recommended to prune fruit-bearing trees during late winter to give them shape and allow sunlight to shine on the tree's center.
Hardwood trees or shrubs without flowers are best pruned in the dormant season, during late fall or winter. As for dead branches, these can be cut at any time of the year.
Tree Pruning and Trimming Services from the Experts
Cutting tree branches is not as simple as it appears. It is a risky situation that, without the proper tools and equipment, can lead to accidents. When doing the pruning and trimming yourself, make sure to fasten yourself to a tree using at least two secure points. Work with someone who will raise the cutting tools to you. Keep yourself protected with gloves, safety glasses, and a hard hat.
If everything else fails, do not fret there are always professionals who are willing and able to do tree pruning and trimming services for you.

Tree Trimming - Cherry Trees
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.
