Trees are essentially large plants, and like any living organism they are prone to sickness. Arborists are individuals who specialize in tree services, ensuring that they are healthy and vibrant. Trees are indispensable for the environment as they give shade, filter air pollution and block the erosion of soil. As such keeping them in an optimal state is in the best interests of every community where they’re present.
What are Tree Services?
Tree services involve the management, study and planting of trees. Also known as arboriculture, it is a hand on profession that requires knowledge from multiple disciplines. Tree management involves fertilizing, trimming, planting, cutting and pruning trees. Risk and safety management are a fundamental part of this service. This is because those who service trees may be expected to climb to branches which are high in order to cut down limbs which are heavy. The arborist has to make sure the limb doesn’t fall and hit any bystanders below while also ensuring they don’t fall down and hurt themselves.
Why Should You Get Tree Services?
Pruning a tree will prolong its life, as it will eliminate limbs which are infested with insects or weakened from disease. It will also enhance the tree’s visual appeal, as the removal of branches which are unwanted will no longer drain energy from the tree trunk, which means the most desirable areas can then flourish. Eliminating excess limbs can increase the presence of flowers and leaves while encouraging the growth of fruit.
There are a number of other reasons why a tree may be subjected to maintenance. It might be necessary to cut them down for a pending construction project, or they may have to be removed after they’ve died as a result of pine needles. Trees are regularly trimmed to clear sidewalks, to prevent them from interfering with power lines, and will sometimes be moved completely so they don’t crack an existing foundation.
While trees are a necessary and desirable part of the community, if their branches hang too close to buildings they may create damage when they break off, or can strike the siding due to strong wind or storms. Pruning can be used to lower a tree’s weight, which reduces the chances of it falling over during heavy snowfall or from consistently carrying a big load. Overall, tree services involve managing trees in such a way where they boost the value of a property and community while being safe to be around.
