Tree trimming has many benefits, including safety and the health and beauty of trees.
There are many reasons why it is important to keep up with tree trimming at your Winston-Salem, North Carolina home. While aesthetics is one of the reasons why people call on us at TarHeel Residential Tree Service, LLC, issues with dead branches and overgrowth are also common. What you might not realize is that tree trimming serves another vital role: keeping your trees healthy. A healthy tree can give you a lifetime of shade and other benefits. When you consider that it can take decades for a tree to mature, depending on the species, it makes sense to consider tree care that will keep it from dying prematurely.
Overgrowth can be a serious problem. If you have tree branches scraping against your home’s roof or siding, that action can be quite damaging when the wind kicks up. If your trees are growing too close to power lines, a bit of breeze could result in a snapped line that not only cuts off your power, but could do so for much of your neighborhood and could also result in electrocution. Power companies do go around and inspect trees regularly, and they’ll get involved in tree trimming when they see a problem, but you should know that they are not arborists and do not have the proper knowledge or concern for the health of the tree.
While safety and tree health are major reasons for tree trimming, having well-trimmed, beautiful trees is also beneficial. Your home has better curb appeal when the trees don’t look unruly and unkept. If you would like us to put our 56 years of combined experience in the tree care industry to work for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for tree care services, including tree trimming, tree topping, and tree maintenance.
