Why Must You Prune And Trim Your Trees?

by Chiara Brun

When you have trees growing in your yard, you might want to allow them to grow naturally. However, it can be necessary to trim or prune your trees for a number of reasons; here are some of them.

Avoid Problems with Electrical Lines

Not only do you have to worry about your own home and property being damaged by overgrown trees, but you need to also stay aware of the danger untrimmed trees pose to electrical lines near your home. If the electrical lines are compromised due to interference from the branches or leaves on your trees, not only does that pose a risk to you but other families in the area.

Deter Intruders

Another reason to keep your trees trimmed and pruned is that by doing so, you may be able to deter intruders. If you allow the leaves of your trees to become overgrown near a ground floor window or the back door, they can provide an excellent hiding spot and protect intruders from being seen. Well-pruned trees, on the other hand, provide much less coverage.

Avoid Damage to Your Property

Tree pruning can help protect your property from damage. By getting rid of dead branches, you can better protect windows from being broken by those branches if they break off during heavy storms, for instance. 

Not only that, but as your trees grow, their roots do as well. If you have maple, willow or other types of trees that have surface roots, you may soon find that your lawn is difficult to mow or your driveway and walkways are starting to crack because of the exposed roots. If you have this problem, you might consider pruning the surface tree roots themselves with a sharp blade to stop further damage. However, while you can attempt this task on your own, you should think twice before doing so. Improper root cuts can have a serious effect on the health of the tree; it could cause the tree to eventually lean or become unstable. Because of this, it is advisable to consult a professional tree pruning service company to assess the situation. You might be able to save the tree without having it completely removed. 

After reading the information laid out above, you should be better able to understand how pruning and trimming the trees on your property can be beneficial for you. If you are unsure about how to tackle these tasks, contact a tree pruning services company that can do the work for you. Visit http://www.kctreecaresiteks.com/home.html for more information.

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.
