Large, beautiful trees add value to your home and property. In fact, a single tree can add thousands to your home’s property value. Whether you want to boost curb appeal for your own pleasure or because you’re planning on selling your home in the near future, Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following Portland tree care services that will make the trees on your property as beautiful as your home.
Preventative Tree Care
Trees are valuable assets that add warmth and beauty to your home and property. However, trees require care and maintenance to ensure their health, beauty, and safety. That’s why it’s important to hire a certified arborist who is trained in all aspects of arboriculture and preventative tree care techniques.
At Westcoast Tree Care, we help homeowners make educated decisions when it comes to proactive measures to protect the integrity of their trees while avoiding a wide variety of factors that can cause them to fail.
Pruning is an essential part of any preventative tree care program. It is critical to sustaining your tree’s health by stimulating its natural growth while enhancing its overall appearance. However, pruning requires a deep understanding of a tree’s biology in order to eliminate irreparable damage that can hinder its structural integrity or ruin its aesthetic value.
Benefits of pruning include:
- Promotes overall health by removing disease, infestation, or decay
- Maintains the structural integrity of a tree by eliminating deadwood, heavy branches, and excessive foliage.
- Boosts the curb appeal of your home by pruning overgrown trees.
- Minimize potential safety hazards by keeping trees pruned and cared for.
At Westcoast Tree Care, we have mastered the craft of tree pruning and have a deep understanding of the trees native to the Portland, Oregon, area. By selectively removing branches in order to maintain viable structure, we will not only decrease any potential damage caused by severe storms but promote the health and integrity of a tree during its lifetime.
Windsail reduction is a preventative tree care service that works to reduce wind resistance in a tree’s canopy. By selectively removing branches, our certified arborist can reduce a windsail effect by increasing wind penetration and passage throughout the crown of a tree. This, in turn, will make a tree less likely to bend or fail during heavy wind storms.
At Westcoast Tree Care, our certified arborist understands the principles of tree pruning and windsail reduction that lead to strong, wind-resistant trees. We offer a variety of preventative tree care services that can reduce the number of potential threats that can make your trees unpredictable.
It’s an unfortunate fact that trees are susceptible to a large variety of factors that can cause them to fail. Things like storm damage, insect infestation, malnutrition, poor soil condition, flooding, old age, and disease can affect the health and safety of a tree.
Whatever the case may be, an unhealthy or damaged tree can cause serious problems for any Portland, Oregon, homeowner. Prompt, swift action must be taken to prevent a potentially dangerous situation from happening. Below are some common symptoms to look out for that may indicate a hazardous tree.
- Poor structure
- Weak unions
It’s important to pay attention to any indications of a hazardous tree. Keep in mind that many signs are often subtle or even undetectable to the untrained eye.
Are trees and branches blocking the view of your home? Sometimes the trees we love can grow a little too lush, blocking our scenic views. While we all love the trees on our property and the benefits they provide, trees in the wrong places can also ruin the aesthetic appeal of many homes.
