Why Should You Trim And Prune Your Thousand Oaks Trees?

There’s plenty of reasons why you should trim and prune your trees, from considering how they look, to ensuring that your home and cars are able to stay safe. Just like your bangs can get in your eyes from time to time, requiring a barber or hairdresser to trim them off, your trees sometimes need that same special attention and care for a wide variety of benefits.

Some of these assets include:

Allowing Your Trees To Grow Big And Strong

By removing diseased or dead branches and those that aren’t securely attached, you can help a young tree develop a stronger, healthier branch structure that will require less care over time and be more resistant to bad weather.

Keep Your Trees Healthy

Gain better health for your trees by eliminating a prime habitat for pests, diseases, and rot. The removal of diseased or damaged branches is a primary goal during trimming and pruning. Increasing ventilation and lighting conditions can also lessen the prevalence of certain diseases and promote better plant development.

Reduce Risk to Your Home

Many large trees can become dangerous, even if they don’t appear to be sick or falling. Dead, cracked, or loose branches are just a few examples of the dangers that could exist if they weren’t dealt with sooner. By performing the necessary pruning, our certified arborists can assess and mitigate these dangers.

Beautify Your Trees

Create a more pleasing visual result with our tree trimming and pruning service! A healthy, well-shaped tree is appreciated by all. The tree’s natural beauty can be restored through crown cleaning and the removal of heavy, overly long branches.

Keep Your Pathways Clear

Occasionally trees have been planted in poor locations, necessitating clearance and raising. Possible causes include proximity to structures, power lines, and nearby trees. It’s important to keep your trees trimmed and pruned, to insure that they don’t cause any damage to your property, cars, or loved ones, as well as keeping the path clear from falling branches.

When Is It Time To Trim And Prune Your Thousand Oaks Trees?

The rule of thumb is to consider trimming and pruning your trees if you see that they are getting out of hand, but it’s also important to schedule regular maintenance for them as well.

Most trees in the landscape are best trimmed and pruned in the winter. You can prune trees whenever you like, but experts advise against doing so in the spring, when they are actively growing from the time their buds begin to swell until their new leaves reach their full size.

Trimming and pruning landscape trees in the middle to late summer should be avoided unless it is very light, as this can cause an off-season growth spurt that leaves some species, like the ficus, susceptible to freeze damage. Pruning deciduous trees during hot weather is not only detrimental to eucalyptus and pines, but can also cause dormancy to be delayed or shortened.

Whenever you decide to trim and prune your trees, you can trust that West Coast Tree Co. will always be available to help!
