There are many instances that can call for a tree trimming, such as maintaining the tree’s aesthetics and health. There are a few obvious signs that indicate your trees need to be trimmed and today, we at 207 Tree Service would like to share a few of the common red flags you are overdue in calling us to schedule tree trimming.
Wandering Branches & High Growth Rate
Any branches that have become tangled within themselves or around power poles or other structures, or if they have grown over the roof can potentially lead to costly damage. Trees naturally grow upward. When there are few trees to compete with, the trees planted in open spaces can give the trees the opportunity to grow outward as opposed to upward. Unfortunately, trees can be a hazard when the branches become heavy and more likely to collapse under their own. Tree trimming reduces hazards significantly.
Tree Cankers & Bark Disease
Tree cankers are completely missing chunks of bark or when the bark that has sunken in. These cankers lead to tree rot, decay, and susceptibility to disease. Trim away the limbs where the tree cankers are manifesting to protect the trees.
Bent or Crooked Trees
In some cases, trees won’t grow in optimal patterns suited for their structure or with the tree branch. Breakage and property damage can manifest when trees have misshapen limbs that prevent the tree from having their weight evenly distributed
Deep or Multiple Tree Cracks
Suggesting a severe problem with the tree and ignoring the problem will only deteriorate the tree, are when you discover two or more cracks in the tree’s bark or especially deep cracks. Trees with cracked branching need to be trimmed to save the tree.
Removing Deadwood on Trees
When there is excessive deadwood, the tree is likely dying. The presence of broken branches and large sections of deadwood is another hazardous condition that should have immediate attention. Should the vital tree trimming cannot prevent the decay from spreading to the majority of the tree, the whole tree will have to be removed.
Trimming Damaged Tree Trunk or Branches
A sure sign that damage has occurred is seeing any broken or limp tree branch that exposes the inside of your tree. The damage is commonly caused by extreme wind or heavy snow can be very hazardous when it is not taken care of. Ensure to always inspect your trees following a storm if any trees require any immediate trimming.
Pruning Crossing Tree Branches
The bark will rub against the crossing branches that leaves behind damage. Eventually spread to the rest of the tree when the interior of the branch is exposed since branches are susceptible to pests and diseases as well as leads to decay.
Tree Branch Density
When tree branches are excessively thick and dense enough that you can’t see through them, requires it to be thinning out. The branches are more likely to get tangled in the intense wind as the density can also be a hazard during heavy winds and cause damage.
