Pruning the trees around your home and property is an important part of keeping them beautiful and healthy. If you haven’t had your trees pruned or inspected before, it’s important to contact a certified arborist for a free consultation. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to go over the Walla Walla tree care basics of pruning your trees.
Reasons To Have Your Trees Pruned
- Tree Health
- Landscape Maintenance
- Appearance & Aesthetics
Pruning For Tree Health
- Removal of dead or dying branches caused by disease, infestation, animals, storms, or mechanical damage.
- Removal of rubbing branches.
- Removal of branch stubs.
Pruning is a great way to encourage the flower and fruit development of a tree while maintaining or forming a desired shape.
Appearance & Aesthetics
For Walla Walla homeowners, regular tree pruning boosts the curb appeal of your property. Additional aesthetic reasons to prune include:
- Control tree size and shape.
- Keep trees well-proportioned and dense.
- Removal of unwanted branches that detract from tree appearance.
Trees can develop dead or hazardous branches as they grow, especially after heavy winds and storms. When this happens, it’s vital to have them removed as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your home and family. A certified arborist will remove dead or weak branches over homes, garages, sidewalks, or any other area where a falling limb could harm or damage people and property below.
