Q. Why is tree pruning so important?
Trees need to be trimmed or pruned on a regular basis, and branches may need to be taken back some to ensure the health of the tree as well as the safety of your family and your property, or even nearby property. Tree pruning is an important part of yard maintenance for a variety of reasons. The USDA recommends that trees be pruned first for safety, then for health, and finally for beauty. Let us examine each of these benefits in greater detail:
Maintain the security of your property!
One important reason for tree trimming is to remove branches that could cause damage to property or people if they fell or sagged.
For the benefit of humanity, tree health!
Healthy trees contribute to the production of oxygen.
Cutting down dead or diseased branches can help the tree's overall health now and in the future. Furthermore, trimming may help trees develop stronger core structures that will allow them to withstand weather.
Aesthetics and physical appearance!
Trimming a tree can improve its physical appearance as well as its flower or fruit yield.
A: How often should you prune your trees?
The Arbor Day Foundation suggests pruning or trimming trees once a year during the dormant season, which varies based on species and location. The following situations, according to the University of Minnesota Extension, may necessitate an emergency trimming:
• The tree's growth reduces sight for people and vehicles, especially at crossings; and • The tree's limbs interfere with electricity lines. • It's simply too dangerous to approach close to power lines, so contact your local utility company to perform the job. If you believe a tree should be pruned because it is causing damage to your property or constitutes a safety issue, you should seek the advice of an arborist.
Q. How do you securely prune your trees?
The most important rule while cutting a tree, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is personal safety. Hiring an arborist to trim your trees is the best way to ensure their safety. Trimming frequently requires the use of a ladder and, on occasion, places the trimmer in close proximity to electricity lines, posing a risk. Hiring a professional tree trimmer is the best option.
If you do decide to trim your own trees, the USDA provides the following size guidelines to help you determine whether or not the branches are safe to chop:
• Branches with a diameter of less than 2 inches (or 5 centimeters): You are free to proceed....
• Branches with diameters ranging from 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters): Consider it, but if in doubt, give us a call.
• Branches longer than 4 inches (or 10 centimeters): We will see it through for you!.
Contact an arborist certified by the International Society of Arboriculture if you have any questions about your ability to identify the problem and prune effectively. An arborist is knowledgeable and skilled, and he or she can complete the task safely and promptly.
Overall, yearly tree trimming can help keep your yard looking nice and safe for many years.
