Spring Tree Care: Inspect Your Trees

spring checklist- Gainesville tree servicesSpring is officially here, and for many folks that means to-do lists! ‘Tis the season of spring cleaning, home checklists, and all things handy to get your home and yard spruced up for summer fun.

But while you’re checking off those “honey do” items and feverishly mining Pinterest for all of the cool DIY projects you’re going to tackle, don’t forget a very important spring task: Inspecting your trees!

While we enjoy fairly mild winters here in Gainesville, it’s always a good idea to evaluate the trees on your property and make sure they have not sustained any damage from wind, weather, and temperature changes along the way. Spring is also a good time to check your trees because everything’s starting to bloom and leaf out… And if it’s not, well then something may be wrong.

Read on for a spring tree checklist, and be sure to call us if you’re looking for tree services in Gainesville, Alachua, and Newberry. Whether you need tree removal, stump grinding, tree pruning, or an expert opinion on a tree issue, Mr. Tree and Lawn Service has you covered.

  • Do a walkabout of your yard or property to inspect trees and shrubs for any obvious problems. It’s also smart to have an annual tree inspection performed, because there are some red flags that only a trained tree expert will catch.
  • Prune your trees. Pruning dead branches is important to prevent damage to your home, vehicles, and other property, as well as preventing injuries. Tree pruning can also help ensure that your trees grow in a healthy, attractive, and structurally sound way. At our Gainesville tree company, we have over a decade of experience in expert tree care.
  • Plant new trees. Trees are one of the most important elements of landscaping, providing shade, privacy, a windbreak, habitat for wildlife, natural air filtering, and of course, they’re simply beautiful. Flowering trees can add a gorgeous splash of color to your yard, while other types of trees may be chosen for their shape, texture, or other visual appeal. Not sure what your yard needs? We can help with our landscape design and landscape installation services, deciding the ideal type of tree and where to plant it to integrate with your existing landscape.
