Tree service is often overlooked but the benefits of a well maintained landscape are many and need to be considered. Not only does it enable the exterior property to look much more presentable, but proper pruning and trimming can also help control insects as well as plant related diseases that thrive in bad conditions for plants.
Pruning vs trimming
These two words are often used interchangeably but they are actually different things. Tree pruning is the process of removing dead or infected branches from a tree, whereas tree trimming is the process of cutting back on overgrown plants so their growth is controlled.
Safety and protection
Upkeep of your trees means that diseased tree branches will not become a safety hazard for your property and its people. If not careful, trees can destruct the siding of your home, your neighbor’s, or even worse, can fall or break off from stormy winds.
A great benefit of tree service maintenance is the keeping away of pests. Pests and insects can eat through trees, which aids in the structure and strength of the tree and its branches. This is a common cause of weakening branches that fall unexpectedly. If a tree is close to a home, the insects can eventually find their way inside!
