The trees on your Dallas, TX property improve your home’s curb appeal, making your yard look incredible. In addition, trees provide shade, allowing you to sit in the yard comfortably on a warm, sunny day. Because your trees are so essential to your home’s appearance and your comfort, it is imperative that you care for them properly. One way to keep your trees healthy and looking great is to hire a tree trimming service regularly.
If you have never had your trees trimmed and aren’t sure if the service is necessary, there are signs to look for to let you know you need to have your trees pruned. If your trees are experiencing any of the following symptoms, a tree trimming professional can care for the trees before the damage makes it necessary to remove the tree. In addition, having the trees trimmed can keep your home and family safe.
#1 Broken Branches
If you see a broken or splintering branch, you should call a tree trimming service right away. Broken branches are weak, which can cause them to fall. In addition, a gust of wind can easily take down a broken limb, putting your home and anyone near the tree at significant risk.
A tree trimming professional can remove the broken branch safely, preventing a disaster from occurring. When the broken branch is removed, the tree expert can check the other trees on your property for any other broken limbs that can put your home and family at risk.
#2 Misshapen Trees
Misshapen trees don’t look as nice as symmetrical trees; however, this isn’t the only problem that misshapen trees can cause. The trees are misshapen because they grow incorrectly, and the weight distribution between the branches will be uneven, causing the branches to splinter or break. Because splintered and broken branches can fall at any time, causing serious damage or injury to anything underneath, it is best to call a tree trimming company right away.
A tree trimming service can trim the tree to prevent it from breaking, and when they are done, the trees on your Dallas, TX property will look healthy and symmetrical, improving your home’s curb appeal.
#3 Dead or Diseased Branches
A diseased or dead tree branch can put your home and family at significant risk. The branch can fall at any time, landing on anything underneath. In addition, rain or a gust of wind can bring down a dead or diseased branch.
There are a few signs that the branch is dead or diseased.
- Deep cracks or holes in the branch’s bark
- The branches appear to be decaying from the inside out.
- The leaves on the branch are dry and break easily.
- The leaves are discolored and aren’t green when they are in season.
The best way to protect your home and family is to detect these signs early so that you can call a tree trimming service. A tree expert can see the signs of disease and remove the affected tree before the disease can spread, putting the entire tree at risk. In addition, when the branch is removed, you can be sure that your home and family are safe.
#4 The Branches Are Too Close To the Power Lines
Unfortunately, we cannot control the way our trees grow. If a tree on your property grows too close to the power lines, you should call a tree trimming service.
When trees go too close to power lines, a gust of wind can cause the tree to take down the power line, resulting in a power outage. In addition, the live wires on the ground could put your home and family at significant risk.
A tree trimming service will send a tree expert to your home to inspect the tree and determine the safest and most effective way to trim the tree, so you don’t have to deal with this issue again for a while, if at all.
#5 Too Much Growth
When winter ends, and spring arrives, you wait for the new green leaves to sprout from the branches, making the trees look healthy and beautiful. While new leaf growth is great, too many leaves can cause issues with the trees. Areas of dense leaves will prevent the branches from getting the sunlight and oxygen necessary to stay healthy. Ignoring the problem can result in the branch dying, putting your home and family at risk.
A tree trimming service will send a tree expert to your home. They will inspect the trees for areas of dense leaves and focus on trimming these areas. If you have a tree trimming service performed regularly, you can be sure your trees will remain strong and healthy.
#6 Storm Damage
It is a good idea to inspect your trees after a severe storm. It is not uncommon for heavy rain and strong winds to damage the trees on your property. Storm damage can cause the branch to break, and anyone or anything underneath will be at significant risk.
A tree trimming service can remove the damaged branches safely, preventing further issues with the trees and preventing damage to your personal property and anyone standing underneath.
