Westcoast Tree Care is presently on beautiful Whidbey Island outside La Conner, Washington, providing our customers deadwood removal and other preventative tree care services.
Whidbey Island is a lush landscape with a storied history, and is covered with a wide variety of tree species including the Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, and Bigleaf Maple among others.
Whidbey Island receives considerable moisture throughout the year which spurs robust growth in the tree populations. With such vigorous growth comes the necessity for proper tree care maintenance and deadwood removal.
Today we provide a quick list for our customers on Whidbey Island and throughout the Pacific Northwest covering the importance of deadwood removal.
The Importance of Dead Removal
- Deadwood removal is the selective removal of dead branches from your trees. This aids in improving the health, beauty, and safety of your tree.
- Removal of deadwood protects your tree against disease. Dead and rotting branches are vectors for disease and decay.
- Deadwood removal protects your tree from insect infestation. Insects love to make homes in dead and rotting limbs and branches. Routine deadwood removal minimizes the potential for invasive insects to make a home in your tree.
- Removal of deadwood protects your tree from becoming a fire hazard. While this may not be an issue for a location like Whidbey Island, the Pacific Northwest has seen a massive uptick in dry conditions and forest fires.
- Selective removal of deadwood enhances the appearance of your trees and aids in its health.
- Removal of deadwood can make wind fall cleanup less intensive.
The Take Away
