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.

Tree Removal Cost - Determining Factors and Estimates

Pruning a cherry tree is different than pruning other fruit trees.

Pruning most fruit trees is fairly simple. The end result should be a funnel allow equal amounts of sunlight to reach all the branches and in turn the fruit as it grows, promoting healthy growth and maturity of the individual fruits. Trimming a cherry tree is different, here's how...

Although the theory is the same, the end shape is different. It is sometimes described as a scaffolding, ladder or layers. In other words, all of the main producing branches should stick out perpendicular from the trunk, like a "T". The first layer starting 2" prime; -3" prime; from the ground and then additional branching at 2" prime; intervals all the way to the top. Like other fruit trees this allows equal amounts of sunlight to reach the fruit, thought the shape is different. It also increases air flow, which is important for optimal cherry growth.

Special Note: Never prune more than 25% of the tree except in very specific and rare cases.

When should I prune my cherry tree?

In a health region, free of silver leaf disease, pruning and trimming should be done in late winter just before the cherry tree starts to bud. If silver leaf disease is prevalent in your area then it is best to trim in the summer at the first sign of the disease.

Be sure to know the kind of cherry tree you have as some cherry trees require a slightly different approach. Especially varieties of ornamental cherry trees.

Important Things To Consider When Planting Trees In Your Yard

cutting down a tree

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.

Cutting Classifications

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.
