Proper tree trimming and tree pruning is vital to the health and wellbeing of any tree, shrub, bush, or plant. When we come out to trim and prune a tree we look at several factors including health, deadwood, flowering, direction of growth, branch hang, and dozens of other things that our wealth of experience tells us to be watchful for in trees.
Our goal with trimming and pruning is to first remove any deadwood from the tree. By removing deadwood we reduce the risk of falling branches damaging your property or injuring any nearby people. Removing deadwood also extends the life and health of the tree itself. There are a lot of different types of insects, bacterias, molds and mosses that take root and propagate inside of deadwood in trees. By removing this deadwood quickly, we reduce the chances of infestation of an unwanted pest, extending the life of the tree significantly.
Another thing we take into account when trimming and servicing trees is their direction of growth. If left unchecked, trees tend to grow branches at all levels and grow out in all directions, usually chasing the sunlight to its strongest point. This often results in overgrown and lopsided trees that favor a side or direction of growth.
It also helps make your backyard look clean and well kept. Branch trimming can reduce the amount of unwanted leaves and tree debris in your yard, garden and new pool construction.
When you trim a tree consistently, you train it to grow a certain way. The tree, after being trimmed back enough times, will begin to naturally grow in the way you trim it. Proper maintenance is still required, however, to keep the tree from “going rogue” and sprouting branches in odd directions and places. The tree should also be manicured so that it always looks clean and healthy. And when it comes to manicuring trees, there is no one better in the Pearland area than us!
