Life gets crazy sometimes and it may take a toll on your yard and trees. Greater Pitt Tree Service offers tree care options for a healthier and cleaner look to your trees.
Proper Tree Care Is An Important Part of Homeownership
When you buy a home, you are not only buying the house but the land and everything that comes on it, which includes the trees. Trees are an important part of our ecosystem and should be cared for properly. Luckily, there are certified arborists and tree service companies, like Greater Pitt Tree Service, that can help maintain the trees on your land with a variety of techniques.
They may prune the trees, use fertilizer around them for healthier soil, grind stumps that may be in your way, and they may cable or brace a dangerous tree until it can be removed.
Tree Pruning Doesn’t Have To Be A Chore
You may not realize it, but pruning your trees can greatly influence how they grow. You can manipulate the way they grow with certain pruning techniques. It’s better for the tree and it helps keep broken limbs and branches from falling. Trees should be pruned during the fall or winter seasons as this is when the tree is likely to be harmed from the pruning.
Additionally, it’s important to remember that you can’t take too much off of a tree when you’re pruning. No more than ¼ of the crown of a tree should be pruned.
It may seem like a lot of work, but this doesn’t have to be a chore that you do! You can contact us and let our tree service experts come out and prune your trees for you. They can perform this task in a timely manner and safely.
Using Fertilizer for Your Trees and Plants
In the early Spring, trees and shrubs should be fertilized. You can tell they need a little extra help from the fertilizer if they are looking like they are growing poorly. They may have poor colored leaves, smaller than average leaves, premature leaf dropping, and little twig growth each year.
Some of the most common nutrients that may be applied to trees and plants include nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. There may also be micronutrients such as zinc or iron added to the fertilizer.
Healthy Soil Is Part Of Tree Health Care
In order to maintain optimal tree health, there must be healthy soil surrounding the trees. Sometimes trees and shrubs can grow differently or not at all while others flourish when planted in the same area. This could be due to soil health.
Soil contains nutrients, minerals, gases, air, water, and liquids that are essential for tree and shrub growth. It helps regulate the water in the ground, filters out pollutants, cycles nutrients, and gives physical support to its surrounding objects.
Tree Assessments May Be Necessary
If you think that you may need some help with your trees and shrubs, contact us today! A tree risk assessment may be done if there is some concern regarding the structural integrity of a tree as a whole or its branches. Trees that fall may damage your home, commercial building, or property. It can lead to high costs for repair or cleanup. A tree risk assessment can tell you whether or not a tree is a liability and if it needs to be removed, braced, or cabled.
