Tree and Shrub Health

Proper care for your trees and shrubs starts with planting in an appropriate location. Many people stop there, much to the detriment of the well-being of their plants. Caring for your trees and shrubs is a long-term commitment, and each plant requires special attention and care to stay healthy and strong. When trees and shrubs are neglected their health will suffer and the curb appeal of your property will decrease.

Reasons To Prune and Trim Your Trees and Shrubs

  • When they continue to grow, your trees and shrubs can become unshapely and unsightly. It gives the impression that you don’t care about the appearance of your property or the well-being of your plants. 
  • Overgrowth makes it harder for essential nutrients to reach every part of the plant. When excess branches and leaves are removed the entire plant will have access to sunlight, fresh air, and water – all of which are necessary for the plant to grow healthy and strong.
  • Overgrowth can also prevent growth in neighboring plants. Long branches can cover nearby plants, and the constant rubbing can weaken branches. In other words, one overgrown plant is capable of compromising the overall tree and shrub health of your property.
  • Proper pruning and trimming is necessary to help your trees and shrubs withstand harsh conditions such as snow, heavy rain, storms, and frost buildup.
  • Overgrown plants are wonderful homes for insects and other pests. If overgrowth from trees and shrubs comes into contact with a building, these critters can start to make their way inside and cause other problems.
  • Plants can be tended to in other ways during the process of pruning and trimming. We use this time to inspect for disease or insect infestations. If not treated immediately these can not only kill the plant, they can spread to infect other areas of your lawn.

Pruning and Trimming

The terms ‘pruning’ and ‘trimming’ are often used interchangeably but they are two entirely different processes. The differences are subtle but they are equally important. These services are performed at different times of the year, and they use different equipment.

Pruning is the process of removing dead or infected branches, stems, and sometimes even roots. Trimming is the removal of overgrowth that impedes tree and shrub health, though it is sometimes done for cosmetic purposes too. Pruning is necessary after problems occur while trimming is the preventative component for promoting good tree and shrub health.

It is recommended that you prune your plants at least once every year. Trimming can be done as needed but you will probably need your plants trimmed one to four times every year. It’s also recommended that you leave the pruning and trimming to the professionals or you may cause serious damage to your plants.
