Three Reasons Why You Should Have Your Tree Limbs Trimmed On A Regular Basis

by Chiara Brun

Having your trees trimmed on a regular basis is important for many reasons. Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking that the only time they need to have a tree trimmed is when it has started to die or if there are branches broken on the tree that are going to fall to the ground in the near future. The following guide walks you through a few reasons why it is so important to have trees trimmed on a regular basis.

Make Your Yard More Aesthetically Pleasing

Trimming the branches of your trees will make your yard look more aesthetically pleasing because it will give it a very finished look. There are some tree trimming companies that can shape some trees into decorative pieces of art.

Branches Growing Dangerously Close to Power Lines

When branches start growing dangerously close to power lines, they need to be trimmed. If limbs grow into the power lines, during the winter months the weight of ice that collects on the branches can weigh the limbs down. This can cause them to apply pressure to the power lines which could then knock out power to your neighborhood. Having the limbs trimmed as soon as they start coming anywhere close to the wires will decrease the chances of them causing damage to your power lines.

Provide More Sunlight to Ground Plants

If you have a lot of trees in your yard, the grass and other plants that are attempting to grow may not be able to thrive because they are not able to get the sunlight that they need to thrive. Trimming the tree limbs that are overgrown or blocking massive amounts of sunlight can help other plants in your yard to get the sunlight they need to flourish. The trees will not need to be removed from the yard if the larger limbs are trimmed close to the tree so that sunlight can shine down to the ground without being obstructed.

Be sure that you hire a licensed and insured tree removal company to trim your trees for you, rather than attempting to trim them on your own. This will ensure that the trimming is done the right way so that the chances of any damage being caused to your property as the limbs are trimmed is minimal. The company will haul away the limbs when they are finished so that your yard looks as good as possible.

About Me

Avoiding Common Tree Mistakes

I have always been one of those people who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty, which is why I started trimming my own trees. However, after doing it by myself for a few years, I realized that my yard was starting to look a little DIY, which wasn't the look that I was going for. To make things right, I decided to invest in a professional tree service who could come out and fix up my yard. They were amazing to work with, and they even came with all of their own equipment. This blog is all about the benefits of professional tree care, versus doing things on your own.
