Proper tree care

With proper tree care and maintenance, related risks on your property and dangers in your community will be lessened and will eventually vanish. Provided below are simple steps that can be useful in proper tree care and maintenance.

  1. Water your tree and plants regularly according to their needs.
  2. Provide proper fertilizer to ensure the healthy growth and development of trees.
  3. Protect your trees from soil compaction. Excessive soil compaction delays root growth and therefore reduces the ability of plants to take up nutrients and water.
  4. Prune dead and broken limbs at the appropriate time of the year to remove hazardous branches and attain the structural integrity of the tree.
  5. Act immediately as soon as you recognize pest problems on your trees. Do not wait for those pests to fully damage and cease your trees’ growth. Resolve promptly to minimize any potential destruction.
  6. Remove low-hanging limbs and branches that may fall to your home, car, nearby smaller trees, or other structures.
  7. Hire a certified tree specialist to help you obtain proper tree care and maintenance. You may schedule an annual tree inspection to identify both hidden and visible tree health issues and weaknesses. You may also contact them whenever you notice changes or conditions that can pose a hazard to your family and community.
