Do you have a tree that's starting to look lopsided or otherwise unkempt? Have you been making plans to start pruning the tree as soon as the weather is a little warmer? As spring rolls around, flowers start blooming and trees start budding. A tree that might have looked okay last autumn could start to look wild and overgrown if steps aren't taken to correct this as soon as possible. However, instead of doing such things yourself, it's best to allow a professional to do it for you. There are a few reasons why this is, including the following:
Some trees are best pruned in the spring, some are best trimmed in the autumn just before winter, and others can be pruned at just about any time. Unfortunately, a lot of people only know about spring tree trimming, so that is the only time when they trim trees. Unfortunately, pruning your trees at the wrong time has the potential to weaken the tree, leaving it vulnerable to insects and disease. A professional will know whether or not it's a good idea for you to have your trees trimmed right now depending on both what type of tree or trees you have and what sorts of pests are endemic to the area.
It's also possible that your tree or trees are already infested with some sort of insect or disease pest. It's also entirely possible that the average person wouldn't be able to tell this simply by looking. A tree trimming professional will know what signs to look for while pruning any trees, allowing them to spot disease or infestations potentially months or years before you'd notice anything amiss. This early warning will allow you to take action as soon as possible, most likely preventing you from having to have the tree removed in the near future.
Good tree trimming is about more than simply removing limbs that look bad now. You also have to remove limbs that are going to be a problem in the near future. If you are not a tree trimming professional, this can feel like trying to see the future. Figuring out which branches will cause issues in the next few months or years can seem as difficult as trying to guess tomorrow's lottery numbers. On the other hand, a professional who has experience with trees will be able to tell exactly what areas could be problematic later and trim or prune them back so that they cause no issues.Share

Elm, ash, walnut, maple, apple — these are all gorgeous trees, but they all have their own preferences in terms of care. Maple trees, for example, need to be pruned later in the season once their sap has begun flowing. Elm trees should be pruned in winter when insects aren't around in order to protect them from the emerald ash borer. A good tree care company will treat each of your trees as individuals, customizing care to their own specific needs. Still, it's important that you, as the tree owner, understand those needs, too. Read the articles on your website, and you'll soon have a pretty good grasps on the basics of tree care.
