Tree Care

Doing what’s best for a tree throughout its lifetime makes a huge difference in its future​.

Pruning

Here are 6 reasons to consider pruning:

To beautify

As mentioned, pruning affects the appearance of a tree. By cutting off dead limbs or removing sections of the tree that are growing faster than others, you’re giving your tree a whole new look. Think of it as a haircut for your tree. Good grooming is beneficial and especially important for trees that you’ve planted for the sole purpose of adding looks to your section.

More Fruit

Any kind of fruit tree benefits from pruning. By removing dead limbs, you’re promoting better health in the tree, because dead wood makes the tree more susceptible to insect infestation and disease. Also, pruning a fruit tree encourages the growth of spurs, which will produce fruit the following year. And who doesn’t like more fruit?

 To improve the view

Pruning to get a better look at, a valley, sweep of coast or other natural structure – even just to let in more light – is a common practice.

To remove hazards

By far the most important reason to call ArborCare in to prune your tree. Dead branches fall very easily during high winds or storms. In fact, even when weather conditions are ideal, these branches may still fall. This includes paying attention to branches hanging over the roof of your home and those growing near or into electric lines.Cracks in a tree, decay, borer, disease and poor root growth are all able to cause safety issues. If you’re not sure, get us in for expert advice.

To treat disease

Trees will be able to withstand harsh weather better after pruning too. ArborCare’s professional pruning makes roots stronger, meaning a healthier tree that can withstand bad weather and high winds. Pruning also encourages new growth.

Planting

We can help you decide which trees suit You

We can help with everything, from which trees suit your site best to making sure they’re planted properly. The conventional wisdom is that you should “put a $5 tree in a $50 hole.” Getting the tree off to the right start is crucial; not too close to a boundary, not too close to electricity wires, how big will it potentially get? We have the answer to these and any other questions!
