The trees on your Fort Worth, TX property serve a few purposes. First, your trees provide curb appeal to your home. Also, your trees provide shade in your yard, allowing you to spend time outdoors comfortably on a hot summer day. Finally, your trees provide some protection from the elements to your home, vehicles, and anything else in your yard.
Because your trees serve so many purposes, it is essential that you care for them properly. One way to do this is to have a tree trimming service performed every year. If you aren’t sure if an annual tree trimming is necessary, you should consider the benefits associated with this service.
#1 Removal Of Dead Or Weak Branches
If any of the branches on the trees on your Forth Worth, TX property are weak or dead, they will be removed during the annual tree trimming service. If a weak or dead branch falls, it can cause serious damage or injury. An annual tree trimming will protect your home, vehicle, and any family members walking or sitting under the tree.
#2 Provide More Nutrients To Healthy Parts Of the Tree
The trees on your property need nutrients to survive. The nutrients are delivered to every branch, even those that are dead or dying. These branches cannot benefit from the nutrients, and they will take the nutrients from the branches that can benefit. When you have an annual tree trimming performed, the dead and dying branches will be removed, and the nutrients will only go to branches that can benefit.
#3 Increase Essential Oxygen and Sunlight To the Tree
Over time, smaller branches and leaves sprout from the larger branches. If there are clusters of small branches and leaves on the tree, it will limit the amount of sunlight and oxygen reaching the branches, which can be very harmful to your trees. When you have a tree trimming performed, the tree expert will remove the clusters of branches, allowing your trees to get the sunlight and oxygen they need to remain healthy.
#4 Promote Growth
Having a tree trimming service performed regularly will stimulate tree growth. If there are sections of your trees that are lacking leaves, regular trimming will help this. Many people believe that trimming the tree will reduce the number of leaves, but this is not the case. When the tree is stimulated, bare spots will fill in faster, giving your trees a more symmetrical appearance.
#5 Improve the Appearance Of the Tree
If your trees are going to look their best, they need to be symmetrical. If your trees have longer branches than others, it can affect the appearance of your trees. When you have a tree trimming service performed every year, the tree expert will trim these branches, giving your trees a more symmetrical look, which will improve your home’s curb appeal.
#6 Address Tree Disease Early
Trees, like all living things, can develop diseases. If the trees on your property have a disease and aren’t caught early, the disease can take over the entire tree, resulting in death. If this happens, the tree will need to be removed immediately to prevent severe damage to your property and injury to your family.
When you have a tree trimming service performed every year, the disease can be caught early and be treated by a tree expert, which will save your trees.
#7 Protects the Structure Of Young Trees
If you have young trees on your Fort Worth, TX property, having an annual tree trimming service is essential. Young trees aren’t structurally strong yet, and the wind can be damaging. The tree expert can shorten the branches and lower the crown density, which will reduce the mass and motion of the limbs when it is very windy, which will protect your young trees, allowing them to grow strong.
#8 Increase Flower and Fruit Production
If you have fruit-bearing trees on your property, it is essential that you have a tree trimming service performed every year. Trimming the trees before the fruit begins to grow will stimulate the tree, allowing your tree to produce more fruit. Also, any dying or dead branches will be removed, allowing the nutrients to go to only the healthy branches, which will allow the tree to produce more fruit.
#9 Keep the Mosquitoes Away
Mosquitoes can be a major nuisance during the spring and summer. There is nothing worse than trying to relax in your yard, only to get attacked by mosquitoes. If you have a tree trimming service performed regularly, you can reduce the number of mosquitoes on your property. Mosquitoes often gather in overgrown, shady areas. A tree expert can remove the clusters of leaves, providing more sunlight under the tree, which isn’t an appealing place for mosquitoes.
#10 Increase the Value Of Your Home
According to a study performed by Michigan University, having trees on your property can increase the value of your home by 6 to 11 percent. In addition, according to PNW Research Station, a tree in front of your house can increase your home’s resale price by up to $7,130. If the trees on your property are overgrown and unkempt, they won’t increase the value of your home. Also, if you decide to sell your home, you won’t be able to add the additional cost to your resale price. If you decide to sell your home and your trees look unhealthy, it will be a turn-off to prospective buyers. If you have a tree trimming service performed every year, your trees will be strong and healthy if you decide to sell.
