Talking About Tree Care Services

Hi there, my name is Neil. I am excited to share my knowledge about tree service with you all. My land is absolutely covered in fruit trees. Before I started providing the trees with regular care, they did not produce much fruit each year. I worked with a tree service professional to see if we could improve their yields across the board. My tree service professional eliminated pests and improved the health of my trees in a short span of time. The trees started producing fruit in abundance after that point. My site will explore the extreme level of care provided to trees by these dedicated professionals.

Have A Backyard Playground? Grow The Right Trees Nearby For The Safety Of Your Children

by Fred Nelson

After owning your home for a while, you may have invested in a playground set for your children. Going the whole nine yards may have been your intention from the beginning. The surface beneath may be full of soft mulch or rubber to prevent your kids from injuring themselves when playing around. With such an emphasis on safety, you cannot forget about the landscape around the general area. It is important to be strategic with your planting and willing to remove trees based on their risk factor.

Weak Branches

The problem with weak branches is that they are more likely to break. While heavy winds and strong storms will certainly increase the chances, you do not want to leave your kids in any risk at all. So you should not hesitate to cut down trees such as the Russian olive, willow, or poplar. These trees are known for having weak branches, which is not what you want to have near your children. It becomes more urgent to remove these trees when they are close to the backyard playground. But, if they are far away, the main thing you have to worry about is branches blowing in the wind and reaching the play area.

Problematic Litter

Ash trees typically drop seeds, so it is something that homeowners expect to happen. But, the great thing is that you can find several varieties that do not produce these seeds, such as the "Raywood" ash. These seeds might not be dangerous when they are left on the ground and your kids are running around in their shoes, but they can be harmful to those who may be wearing socks or going completely barefoot. It is smart advice to have your kids wear shoes at all times, but you cannot make this a guarantee. The best plan is growing trees that only drop leaves and flowers, which are not going to put your kids in danger.

Shallow Roots

Trees like the cottonwood and birch are problematic in their own way. Because they have shallow root systems, you have to watch out for them showing up on the surface around the playground. Their presence can be troubling because your children may not pay attention and end up tripping. Prioritizing trees with deep root systems will keep you and your kids from seeing roots while they are growing.

A clever tree planting and removal strategy is crucial when your children are the ones who benefit. For more information, contact local professionals like Carlos Tree Service Inc.
