Keeping Your Trees Healthy

After we moved into a new home, I realized that the trees out front needed some serious attention. They were overgrown, tired-looking, and a little dangerous, so I started working with professional arborists to have them trimmed. It was a lot of work, but before we knew it, things had really improved. By the time they were finished pruning the branches, the trees didn't block the view of our home and we really felt like they would bloom better in the spring.

Tree Pruning: What Trees Should You Prune?

Tree pruning is something that your tree specialist can do for you on the trees that need the most care on your property. If you have issues with your trees, your tree specialist can come to your property and check them out, eyeballing the trees that are overgrown or misshapen, and will make suggestions regarding tree pruning.

Which trees should you prune on your property? It's wise to know so you can do some minor tree pruning here and there to keep your trees looking great. Every tree is different, with pine and other trees rarely needing tree pruning at all. Deciduous trees, however, often need pruning, sometimes more than once a year. Here's a guide to help you out so you are prepared when your tree pruning services specialist comes to your home.

Your fruit trees

If you want tasty and large fruit on your fruit trees, then you need to have tree pruning done either at the end of fall when the last fruit has been picked or in early spring before a full bloom has begun. Tree pruning of fruit trees may appear brutal at first, but it's necessary to have proper fruit growth to help make the production of fruit even better.

All suckers that grow up at the base of your fruit trees should be cut down and removed by your tree specialist so your fruit trees can just focus on growing their own fruit.

Your shade trees

The more you prune your shade trees, the more they can provide you with continuous shade all season long. Shade trees rely on having an even allowance of sunlight to grow those branches and leaves you rely on to stay cool in the warmer months, so have your tree pruning specialist come in and thin the inner branches of your shade trees so sunlight can get deep inside the tree for a wider shade span and even shade coverage.

Your decorative trees

Decorative trees should be shaped and pruned regularly. If you have shrubs for decoration as well, such as juniper bushes, they need to have pruning done to keep them looking great. A decorative tree looks its best when it's properly shaped and styled to show your landscape well.

Your tree pruning specialist can prune all your trees in one day, but larger projects may take a few days to complete. Once the work is done, your yard and trees will look amazing and more beautiful than ever. Look into tree pruning near you for more information.
