Four Benefits of Preventative Tree Maintenance
When it comes to your landscape, the importance of preventative maintenance should never be overlooked. Regular pruning ensures that your trees will have the greatest possible growing conditions and can thrive for many years to come. Tree pruning also enhances the appearance of your property and can add to its real estate value. Possibly one of the most important aspects of tree pruning, that is often overlooked, is that it can minimize the potential for costly storm-related damages.
Almost any tree can benefit from regular maintenance and pruning, though young trees require the most upkeep in order to grow into a structurally sound and aesthetically desirable shape. However, there is way more to pruning than simply shaping a tree. It is important to follow the right steps or you’ll risk doing permanent damage.
Improper tree pruning can easily result in costly or even irreversible damage to your valuable trees and landscape. For this and many other reasons, it makes sense to hire a professional tree service. When done correctly, the benefits of preventative tree maintenance include:
Keeping Trees Healthy
Pruning is essential for a dynamic and cohesive landscape. Not only are dead and dying branches removed, but pruning stimulates new growth by enhancing overall sunlight penetration and air circulation. Eliminating weak spots also prevents any existing damage from worsening that could result in lasting damage or an untimely tree death. Pruning also allows you to keep a close eye on your trees’ direction of growth. This, in turn, further promotes their long-term stability, safety, and health.
Adds Property Value
When your trees and lawn are aesthetically pleasing, the value of your home and property can increase substantially. Your home’s exterior and landscaping are the first, and often only, impression others have. Overgrowth of trees and shrubs interferes with surrounding plants’ ability to grow and thrive, and it can easily diminish the visual balance of your yard. Annual maintenance keeps their rate of growth in check, and eliminates unsightly overgrowth.
Improves the Overall Appearance
Preventative tree maintenance will improve the overall appearance and structure of your trees, keeping them from developing broad or weak branches. Trimming prevents limbs from growing with weak crotches, or eventually crossing each other and competing for space.
