Homeowners have a variety of responsibilities that include not only taking care of your home and property but your landscape and trees as well. This includes having your trees regularly trimmed and pruned to keep them healthy and beautiful. Tree trimming also helps to prevent things like infestations, and disease, while keeping them from growing too close to power lines, and nearby structures.
Tree trimming is especially important for larger trees. While we appreciate the shade and beauty they provide, it’s never a good idea to simply sit back and let them grow wild. As a tree grows, its branches spread out and die over time creating a potential safety hazard. Not only that but there are a variety of things that make regular tree trimming important. That’s why the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with a list of reasons to have your trees professionally pruned in Bellingham, Washington.
When you hire a certified arborist to professionally trim your tree, you have the ability to control how it will grow. By carefully configuring the growth of a tree with proper balance and weight distribution, your tree will have the ability to hold its ground better during heavy storms while alleviating the possibility of falling branches or limbs.
Insect infestations are a common threat to the trees we love. Without treatment, these infestations can pose a serious risk to the health and safety of your tree. While not all insects will kill a tree completely, they can, however, weaken its structure from the inside out. Regular tree trimming can help alleviate problematic pests by limiting their ability to spread to nearby trees, saving a homeowner a lot of money on pest control.
As one of the main reasons to hire a certified arborist, safety is at the top of the list. Regular tree trimming will not only help you avoid a potential disaster like a falling branch causing unwanted damage to your property, it will protect the people and pets below. Neglecting to care for your trees, however, can result in extreme safety hazards. This is because dead or broken branches are extremely unpredictable and can fall at any time.
Trees not only add value to your property, they are often one of the first things people see when looking at your home. While it’s important to have your trees trimmed regularly for safety reasons, it’s also great for aesthetic purposes as well. Trees add balance to your home and property. If they are beautiful and well-kept, they will provide others with the impression that your home is just as well-maintained.
