Pruning Your Trees
Trees are most certainly taken for granted by the average person. If you live in an area heavily populated with wooded areas, you probably don’t even notice them. If you live in a more built-up city like environment you may not even think about them.
With a healthy tree come many benefits to humans, animals and the environment:
Trees clean the air by absorbing pollutants, they absorb CO2, removing the carbon whilst releasing the oxygen back into the air. They also help to prevent soil erosion, by holding the soil in place. They are a fantastic source of food, supplying humans with an array of fruits, in addition to food for birds and wildlife. They cleverly provide us with indications of the change in seasons, from the gorgeous blooming summers, to the radiant reds and gold’s of autumn. They can offer privacy to homes, buildings, in addition to masking otherwise unsightly walls, unkempt areas.
If you are responsible for trees on your property, it is important that your tree surgeon chepstow understands the necessity of looking after them, to ensure longevity and healthy growth.
If you are wondering why you need to prune your trees, here are a few reasons:
Keep a tree healthy. Regular pruning will see the removal of dead, damaged or diseased branches. This prevents any disease/decay from entering the tree and causing further damage. Thinning the trees will also help with disease prevention, and from a disease spreading from one tree to the next. Whilst pruning, untangle branches, this will prevent them rubbing on each other and causing weaknesses. If there are any other plants growing from the tree, these can be removed too to ensure the tree isn’t missing out on nutrients and water.
By enlisting the help from a professional tree surgeon, trees will be pruned in the correct manner, thus ensuring the overall structure of the tree is not compromised. This is important not only from the trees health point of view, but also one of safety. It is not wise to have a tree which isn’t structurally sound, especially if it is close to your property, or where people may be close by. A tree surgeon will also make sure that any low growing branches are removed, or trimmed back to avoid any unnecessary accidents. As well as retaining the trees natural form, pruning will also stimulate growth in the tree.
