If you’re like most homeowners, you probably value the trees that add beauty to your home and property. You also appreciate the many benefits they provide like shade, erosion control and energy savings. That’s why it’s important to keep them strong and growing for many years to come. One easy measure to help ensure their health, promote their beauty and prolong life is to have your trees professionally pruned by a certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care.
Pruning Prevents Infestations
Regular pruning helps prevent insect infestations by removing infected branches. Insect infestations can travel throughout various parts of a tree and can ultimately cause it to fail. Deadwood should also be pruned as branches that are no longer living are especially susceptible to insects and other infections. Proper pruning done by a certified arborist will ensure sterilized cuts that will prevent unwanted infestations from spreading to the rest of the tree.
Pruned Trees Are Healthier
In addition to preventing unwanted infestations, pruning also keeps a tree structurally sound and healthy. By removing deadwood, pruning helps a tree to efficiently nourish its remaining branches. Furthermore, when a tree becomes dense, pruning helps decrease the weight of the heavy branches making them safer to be around while increasing the amount of light and air a tree needs to thrive.
Pruned Trees Are Beautiful
While ensuring the health of a tree is important, homeowners also want to make sure their trees look beautiful. Having them pruned by a certified arborist helps with this as well. While cutting out dead branches obviously make a tree look better, proper pruning will also shape your tree to make it aesthetically pleasing. Professionally done, uneven growth patterns can be smoothed out, making your tree more pleasing to the eye.
Pruned Trees Are Safer
Last, but not least, a regularly pruned tree is safer. While you may not consider trees dangerous, the truth is that they can be. When weak or dead branches are left on a tree, there is always the risk of them falling unexpectedly. The unknown timing of these branches falling can come with hazardous consequences to your home, property or loved ones. Having your trees pruned by a certified arborist will not only keep your trees healthy, pest-free and beautiful but safe to be around.
