TREE REMOVAL: THE SKILLS BEHIND IT

Posted on 17 February 2018 (0)

There is a rationale behind every tree removal in an area. Sometimes, tree removal is done because it is already a problem to the community or is blocking the way of establishments. Trees are considered a problem when its structure overpowers a home or other structures in the area. Trees are also removed if it interrupts power lines or other lines like telephone lines. The power companies remove trees to be able to give high quality services to their clients.  

 Trees like any other living thing, also ages and also accumulate diseases which makes their structure weaker. Pests and fungus are the main cause of tree diseases. If a tree gets weak, it can cause huge damages in the area. This is the reason why if you see your tree not in good shape, it is better for it to be removed rather than be risky enough for it to stay in your yard or neighborhood.

  Tree removal is needed when you see the following indications.  First, if you see that the tree is dying, weak and if there are structures that can’t be pruned.  Second if you see that the tree is already a big threat to structures nearby.  Third, if the tree is a big conflict to any construction and man work.  Fourth, if acts of God had damaged trees. Fifth a tree removal is needed if trees are a big destruction to views and light source.  If trees are not removed given these problems, trees can cause a bigger problem in the future.

  Tree removal is a job that needs to be done by someone who is skilled at it. Tree removal can’t be done by someone who does not know the does and don’ts of the process. You must hire professional arborists to do the tree removal job.

     Choosing the right arborist to do a tree service is a challenge for some because some do not know if they had chosen the right one. For a free service, you must pick someone who is already skilled at what they are doing. An experienced arborist is someone who had years of experience in doing the craft. Someone who is skilled also uses the right tools and procedures for a particular tree service. Aside from this, experienced arborists can know and decipher which tree service your tree needs.

Professional arborists are certified and underwent tests to make sure they are really qualified for the job.  It is very important that a professional arborist do the tree removing job because tree removing consists of processes which demands the use of the right tools to make the job right. An error in tree removing can cause serious damages not only to the tree but also to the area as well. It is also important for you to do research on a certain arborist to know the feedback of clients and their past works.

Pruning is very important in your trees. It rejuvenates trees, allows them to grow quickly and in the right shape. Pruning also increases tree productive. However, pruning timing is more important than the tree pruning itself. Right timing will ensure that pruning yields the desired results. Depending on the type of the tree we expect to have different timing for the trees. Different timing also gives different results of pruning. There are times you prune your tree to enhance growth, other times you prune the tree to enhance flowering and other times you prune the tree to remain healthy. All these pruning timings should be done well to ensure that you achieve your desired results. The following are the timing of pruning your trees for effective results.

  • When there are Damaged, Dying or Dead Branches

Dead, dying and damaged branches possess some risk on the tree. Pest can hide on these branches and spread to the entire tree. These branches also prevent the trees from growing to desired size and density. Sick branches on your tree can spread the infection to the entire tree causing its death. Therefore, you should always inspect your trees to ensure that these branches are removed from the trees as quickly as possible.

  • Before Flowering Season for the Flowering trees

Flowering trees should be pruned immediately after they bloom. This is usually in the spring season. Trees normally flower on the woods that was produced on the previous season. Pruning, therefore, helps the tree to have more flowers. It opens the tree canopy for sufficient sunlight. Sunlight is very helpful in the flowering process. Example of the trees to prune on the springs are mountain laurel, rhododendron, flowering plum, azalea, magnolia, chokeberry, lilac, forsythia and the flowering quince. Other trees flower during the summer season. These trees should be pruned in late winter before new growth starts. These trees include snowberry, beauty bush, viburnum, autumn olive, and summer sweet.

  • When Trees have no flowers or fruit

Flowering and fruiting trees should be pruned in the season they do not have any fruit or flower. When you prune flowered tree or trees with fruits you damage them. The fruits fall off and the tree performance is reduced. These trees should be pruned in the seasons which they are dormant. Pruning should be done before active budding or growing is experiences. When pruning ensure you first inspect the tree whether it has signs of flowering or fruits.

Some trees require continuous pruning to give adequate sunlight. Other trees require pruning every year in a particular season. You should understand which is the best season of the year to prune such kind of trees. Other trees, on the other hand, require minimal or no pruning. If you prune them regularly you reduce their performance. Therefore, as a homeowner ensure you understand your trees well. You can always get help from tree care experts.
