The spring season is upon us and Westcoast Tree Care is back in beautiful Walla, Walla Washington providing preventative tree care for our customers. The spring season is the optimal time for tree care and today we’ve put together a list of tree care tips for our Walla, Walla, Washington and Pacific Northwest customers.
Preventative Tree Care Tips
The spring season is an optimal time to begin surveying your trees for potential issues and general maintenance. At this point your trees have not yet begun to burst with growth so evaluating their structure is easily accomplished.
Westcoast Tree Care offers a variety of services to help ensure your trees start the season off right.
- Pruning: Begin the spring season with a tree pruning by an ISA Certified Arborist like Westcoast Tree Care. We will selectively remove branches throughout the crown and interior of your trees, applying thinning cuts, while also removing cross-branches. Pruning in the spring will help to lessen the impact of spring storm damage, as well as promote your trees structural integrity and growth.
- Deadwood Removal: Protect your trees against disease, decay, and insect infestation with spring deadwood removal. Removing deadwood will also aid in minimizing fire hazards and wind fall cleanup. You’ll not only improve your trees aesthetic beauty, you’ll also improve their health.
- Windsail Reduction: Spring affords you the opportunity to get ahead of potential storm related issues. During spring storms, strong winds can cause the top of your trees to behave like wind sails. This can lead to potential damage to your home and property. Windsail reduction is a process of selectively removing branches throughout the trees crown to allow better wind passage. This procedure will aid in relieving limb strain, stress, and movement. Windsail reduction maintains the natural look of your trees, minimizes wind related damage, and aids in providing your home and property with additional sunlight.
