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.

Three Tips For Taking Care Of Your Trees

by Fred Nelson

The trees on your property make a huge difference in curb appeal and the value of your home, which is why taking care of them is so important. Besides, trees that are not taken care of can potentially cause large amounts of damage that you won't want to pay for. This is because they are more likely to fall in large storms or at least have large branches fall that can cause damage to your property or a neighbor's. To prevent this from happening to you, you will want to follow these three tips for taking care of your trees:


First off, the soil surrounding your tree should be mulched if the tree is newer. This is because new trees have delicate roots that need help retaining water. Mulch will do this because it acts as insulation, meaning that it will retain water and prevent the roots from drying out. Mulch also prevents weeds from popping up around the tree, which is also something to consider for older trees. When weeds aren't present, it ensures that the tree stays even healthier because the roots won't be losing out on nutrients because the soil is also trying to feed the weeds. 


With a new tree, you should be watering it every day. Once it gets older, you don't have to water it as often, but you have to remember that the roots have likely spread out significantly so you should cover a large base around the tree when you do water it. Without watering your tree, the roots are likely to become dried out and damaged, which is going to affect the rest of the tree, potentially causing decay and cracking. 


When it comes to trimming the tree, you need to do this regularly, but leave it to the professionals. This will ensure that the tree is trimmed properly. If the tree is trimmed too short, for example, it can hinder growth. A tree service like General Tree Service will also be able to look for other potential problems with the tree while they are trimming it, which you may not be able to catch on your own because of lack of experience. The sooner decay and cracking are noticed, the sooner something can be done about it to ensure that the tree does not cause any damage to the property surrounding it in the future. 

When you consider these three tips for taking care of the trees on your property, you can be sure that the trees on your property stay healthy, which can save you money long term.
