There are many benefits of trimming and pruning, including maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your landscape. But tree trimming and pruning are also vital for your tree’s well-being. Keeping your trees trimmed allows for proper tree growth while helping to control insects and harmful plant related diseases.
Controlling Pests and Insects
One of the major benefits of properly pruning and trimming your trees and shrubs is keeping harmful pests and insects at bay. Without keeping the insects on your property controlled, major concerns can start to arise. A great example would be Tent Worms. These worms are colonizing insects that build nests in your trees and eat surrounding foliage. Even though these worms will not necessarily kill off your plants, they often spread diseases. This can greatly weaken the plant and plant weakening increases the probability of falling branches. When these infected plants are close enough to your home, the Tent Worms can travel inside and invite other unwanted pests into your house.
Protecting Your Valuable Property
Another major benefit of regular plant upkeep is protecting the safety of your home and property. If you have dead or diseased branches, they could be posing a major hazard to your home. Properly pruning and trimming your trees will ensure that you and your house are safe from falling branches. Branches that have grown too close to your home and other property can also cause major damage in the event of a storm. Swaying branches can scrape your siding and even remove shingles from your roof. Not to mention the unwanted event of a large branch falling on your home. We can easily assess your landscape and remove any branches that may be a risk to you and your property.
