Trees Need Checkups Too

Trees need care too!

Keeping your trees healthy and preventing them from becoming overgrown or a safety hazard is a key part of maintenance of your landscape. While you may be aware that your trees need to be kept up, you may be wondering what kind of work they may need, why it is necessary, and where you can find reputable tree services in Gainesville.

Trees need TLC!

Leaving your trees without pruning, fertilizing or checkups may seem like a viable option. However, trees in an urban setting cannot simply grow and develop naturally as they might in a forest. Fallen branches and overgrown trees can become a safety hazard. The soil in urban areas is much different than that in a forest. Because there is no natural competition for resources, weaker trees that are less resistant to decay and disease may be allowed to grow, causing safety or aesthetic issues. Annual checks on older trees can be an important part of ensuring that decay or insects are treated promptly, and any structurally dangerous trees are properly trimmed.

Continuous care, such as pruning, fertilizing, removal of fallen branches or unstable branches, checkups for decay and insects and aeration of compacted soil will keep your trees looking better, resistant to disease, and in line with safety needs.
