Working With A Tree Service To Ensure Your Residential Trees Stay Healthy

Having trees around your house can be a wonderful way to provide some shade, it offers a home to birds and small animals, and flowering trees can be nice to look at as they bloom. Making sure the trees stay healthy and happy is a vital part of having them on the property, and working with a residential tree care company can make that easier. 

Tree Pruning

Some residential trees are sensitive to pruning, and how much they are cut, the time of year the pruning happens, and the method used to prune them can all affect how the tree grows afterward. If you are unsure how or when to prune the trees around your yard, hiring a residential tree care service is an excellent way to ensure that the tree is not damaged.

The service can also help revive the tree if there is damage to it from a previous trimming, but in some cases, that requires removing more of the branches to allow new growth to come up and the tree to start to recover. Most tree care services have botanists and arborists on staff that know what the trees need and how to best manage the care for you. 

Routine Care

A yard with many trees can be a lot of work to keep up with, and if you are not able to make the time or are physically unable to care for them, the residential tree care company can come and water them, check on the health, and add fertilizer or nutrients around the trees for you. Like a lawn care service, the tree care service will come monthly to check on the trees, and if you have one you are concerned about, you can call them and ask for someone to check a tree for you.

If the tree is too sick to save, the service can also remove and replace a tree for you and help you find a suitable replacement for that spot in the yard. In some cases, the tree may not have survived because it didn't have enough sun or other nutrients, so selecting a replacement tree that requires less sun is a better option. 

Tree Trimming

Trimming trees that have branches hanging over the roof of your home or are in some way dangerous is crucial. Residential tree care services can help you deal with it, or bring in a tree trimming service to do the work for you. 

While tree trimming is similar to pruning, it is done differently to help change the way the tree grows. If the branches are cut correctly, it is possible to train the tree so that new growth does not appear over the house. In time, and with proper training, the tree will change without damaging the tree.
