Knowing the basics of how to decipher when a tree needs to be trimmed by professionals is an important part of property ownership. How and when a tree needs to be pruned is dependent on the tree species, when its’ transition period is and if it poses as a potential risk.

Routine tree trimming in Arnold, MO helps your home and business stand out as clean and welcoming, and there is a bit of pride that comes along with having the greenest, fullest trees on the block.
Trees are pruned for a number of reasons that can include:

  • Removing dead branches
  • Enhancing flowering and fruits
  • Prevent hazardous overgrowth
  • Brightening up outdoor areas

Whatever the reason, trees often need a good pruning, but how do you know if your tree should schedule an appointment with Tree Service Jefferson County?
Signs of Decay
If there are several branches on your tree that seem to stick out like a sore thumb because they lack in the healthy appearance that other branches share in, then it is likely your tree is an excellent candidate for pruning services.

Skipping on hiring professionals to prune dying branches can lead to the worsening of disease and the tree can become infested with insects as it rots. Even damaged branches can be pruned to benefit the tree’s health and structural sound.
Bountiful Beauty
Have a backyard apple tree that you’d like to keep in good shape, both literally and figuratively? When flowers on a tree appear to be getting lighter and more dull, it is probably time for a routine pruning.

By hiring the professionals to prune the trees right, stronger flower buds have more of an opportunity to grow and more room is opened up for oxygen to circle to the fruit. This will produce healthy fruit that ripens faster.
Damage Control
You know those fancy hedges that you’d see in movies that would be shaped like animals and objects? While those are created by pruning trees and hedges, they’re not really reality for most homeowners, but having perfectly shaped trees is!

If there are any branches on the tree that have been damaged, have fallen or appear as though they will eventually fall, scheduling to have your tree pruned is your best bet in keeping your family and surrounding structures safe. The cost for damage repair to buildings, vehicles and more can be avoided by handling the root of the issue promptly.

Due to fallen trees or branches, damage can also occur on phone and power lines, both of which are not a bill anyone wants to pay for.
Added Sunshine
Is the giant tree in your front yard causing so much shade that it is dulling your lawn? Have a backyard tree that prevents enough sunlight from reaching your garden? Pruning a tree professionally changes the way the tree grows forever (hence why most people just hire their local tree trimming service) and this can often benefit area foliage whose potential was hindered due to lack of sunlight.

Pruning up trees opens up any yard, walkway path and anywhere else where trees decide to darken what should be bright. Not only will the tree benefit, but family, neighbors, customers and pets will enjoy a good dose of extra sunshine.
