Are trees and branches blocking your view of the beautiful Portland cityscape? Here in Oregon, we enjoy our captivating mountain, river and sunset views. However, sometimes the trees we love can grow a little too lush, blocking our scenic views. While we love the trees in our area and all the benefits they provide, trees in the wrong places can also ruin the aesthetic appeal of our homes.
At Westcoast Tree Care, we can help you reclaim the view of your premiere Portland property in a sustainable and low-impact way with the following tree care services.
Tree Care Removal
While it’s never our first option, removing a tree may be necessary to improve your property view. This is especially true when it comes to old, damaged trees that also pose a hazardous threat. As a common practice among homeowners, tree care removal will not only provide you with a refreshing view but help you avoid any safety concerns that can potentially damage your home and property.
At Westcoast Tree Care, our certified arborist will visit your property and discuss your overall goals. We will help you determine the best possible option based on your view enhancement and tree care needs.
Pruning Your Trees
In most cases, the best way to improve your view is to prune and thin a tree’s branches. View enhancement includes the removal of large, heavy limbs that directly obstruct your view. This allows homeowners to keep their beloved trees while maintaining their gorgeous views.
Keep in mind that pruning can be especially healthy when done by a certified arborist and can contribute to the structural integrity of a tree. For example, pruning mature trees will help to diminish the weight of heavy branches that can become hazardous over time. Hazardous tree limbs can also be prevented by pruning and shaping young trees as they grow.
When a tree gets too tall and begins obstructing your view, you may want to hire a certified arborist for a crown reduction service. Crown reduction should never be attempted by anyone other than a professional. Done wrong, a tree can end up looking ridiculous or become severely damaged.
Crown reduction must be done very carefully in order to maintain a trees health and natural look. Specific branches can be cut to reduce height while side branches can be trimmed to maintain a natural appearance. Depending on the species and growth rate of a tree, you may need to have a crown reduction service done several times over the coming years. At Westcoast Tree Care, our certified arborist will offer you advice on what trimming services we recommend.
Sometimes a perfect view isn’t obscured by the height of a tree. Rather it can be low hanging branches. Instead of a tree care removal service, the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care can help you remove any low-hanging branches to create a cleared space. This is a common practice when your home is located above the view of a valley, river or another scenic view. Skirt raising can also help to improve lawn growth by allowing additional light to enter extremely shady yards.
