Tree Pruning & Tree Trimming Services in Asheville or Buncombe County, NC
There are many forms of tree care available today. Trees require more attention than most people realize. However, one of the most universal methods for tree maintenance, safety and health is tree pruning. Trees that grow in desolate places, (such as the forest) receive trimming and pruning on a regular basis from nature. Trees that grow in populated areas are in need of human intervention. However, you should know that incorrect tree trimming can cause severe impairment and even death. To ensure that your trees receive the best treatment, call Low Price Tree Services today. When it comes to trees, we’re the best company in NC. We do tree trimming and a number of other services in Buncombe County, Hendersonville, Henderson County and Asheville.
The How’s, When’s And Why’s Of Pruning
When the task of tree pruning is done by the sophisticated arborists at Low Price Tree Services, your tree will receive the ultimate benefits. Correct pruning can help trees thrive by increasing their attractiveness and overall strength. Damaged limbs are removed which encourages the growth of newer limbs. If the cuts are made just right, the tree can grow in a specific pattern. Ultimately, it will have its own identity among other trees.
When you contact Low Price Tree Services, we will not simply show up and begin cutting. A lot of pre-planning is done before the job begins. We always want to talk with you and do a detailed assessment of your tree. You may want to have your tree pruned so that you can have more or less shade. Pruning for greater tree height may also be your goal. Regardless of your reasons, we’ll help you decide what the end results will be. Our methods will then be tailored to those goals. Keep in mind that your objectives will also determine the time that we complete your pruning job. As an example, if you desire an increased amount of growth from your tree, we would prune during the winter months. To slow the growth of the branches, we would trim during the summer.
Part of our initial assessment would include singling out all of the dominant branches on the tree. We would not cut these as they comprise the tree’s frame. In regards to removal, the first branches that would be trimmed are the ones that display symptoms of damage. The most important reason for cutting away damaged branches is so that nutrients are dispersed to only the healthy branches.
As the pruning job becomes more meticulous, the focus turns to the thickened areas of the tree. Limbs that cross each other are removed to prevent rubbing and to allow more air circulation. The tree can also receive more nutrients from the sun because more light can penetrate. When sunlight can reach the inner parts of the tree, the growth of bacteria and attraction of pests are greatly reduced.
Hanging branches that interfere with clearance of walkways, power lines and even the roof of your home should be pruned. In a basic sense, any branches that cause irritation can be cut.
The Three Distinctions Of Pruning
We’ve discussed many benefits to pruning. Also, the importance of timing for desired results. We also want to make you aware that there are a total of three widely recognized pruning procedures that can be applied to achieve virtually any goal. They are known as crown thinning, crown reduction and crown elevating.
Crown thinning involves the cutting of healthy limbs that are not strongly attached to the tree. These limbs negatively impact other branches by crossing over them, or causing narrow angles. The act of thinning creates an increased flow of sunlight throughout the crown. Our trained professionals are able to correctly select the limbs to remove to allow the greatest amount of light while keeping the health of the tree intact.
The next procedure is crown reduction. This method involves cutting away the terminal part of the outermost branches. This can be a difficult job even for the most experienced arborists. Climbing up the tree and along the branches while using saws is required. However, when the job is completed, the tree is set up for the ultimate success. It has a much greater chance of resisting damage from a storm!
Lastly, crown elevating is defined as the elimination of the limbs at the lower section of the tree. With this procedure, tree health is not the goal. Crown elevating is mainly performed for cosmetic reasons and to add more space underneath the tree.
We will be honest in the fact that there are many trees living a robust existence on their own. They may not be in need of pruning services. We understand this fact wholeheartedly.
Each tree service company in NC can develop identical reasons for why pruning is necessary. However, what makes us a leader in the industry is that we are able to closely adhere to these reasons.
