Trees, like pets, are a beautiful addition to any home; and just like pets, they need to be taken care of from time to time. Tree trimming is a yearly rite where branches are cut off from trees to make them healthier, prevent accidents caused by falling branches, and give room for new growth or to give the tree a particular shape.
IS TREE TRIMMING NECESSARY?
Tree trimming is necessary to prevent old or weak branches from falling and causing damage to property or injuring people.
Aesthetics are another reason to trim your trees. However, make sure you’re cutting in line with the tree’s natural shape to get the best results.
Annual tree trimming to remove weak or dead limbs (best done during the dormant season), enhances growth and improves the health of your trees. Sometimes, your tree needs to have a few leaves and small branches removed to optimize air and sunlight for the rest of the tree.
SHOULD YOU CALL AN EXPERT OR DO IT YOURSELF?
This depends on several factors. You can trim your trees yourself if you have the right equipment (including safety equipment) and the branches you want to trim are between 1 and 4 inches wide. If the branches are larger than 4 inches or you have trouble accurately assessing the situation, it’s best to contact an arborist.
