While it might seem like the trees on your property are able to sustain themselves fairly reliably, the truth is that your trees can develop problems over time just like anything else. And if this happens, you will want to call a tree assessment service to identify what kind of issues might be causing damage to your trees. Here are some of the benefits to have a professional come look and diagnose your trees.
The main reason to have a professional to perform routine assessments on your trees is to ensure your trees stay healthy and happy. Sometimes, spotting potential tree diseases and problems takes a professional eye. Only skilled professionals can see insects, diseases and damage that can harm your tree and potentially make it collapse. They have the skills and tools to quickly identify signs of an infestation and disease and provide proper treatment instruction to ensure your trees return to health and vitality.
Decaying and damaged trees can pose safety hazards, such as falling branches. When trees become diseased or decayed, their branches also become weak and can fall, seemingly without warning. Sudden branch drop syndrome can happen any time, so the importance to get regular tree assessments to help identify issues that could cause a branch to collapse and ensure dangerous limbs are properly trimmed.
To make sure your trees stay healthy and are able to grow without running out into diseases or other issues, it is important to perform routine maintenance. Trees can have issues that can't be seen. Before these issues become irreversible problems, it is a smart idea to have a reliable tree assessment service come look at your trees and assess their health on a regular basis. This will ensure problems can be found before they become serious issues. Every six months is a good timetable for tree assessments. During the winter, the professionals can identify weak branches and potential decay as well as cavities from animals as the trees are less lush and it's easier to spot issues. During the summer, professionals can assess the trees' leaf colour and growth for potential signs of disease and decay.
Although the safety and health of your trees are top priorities of the professionals, as a homeowner, you may also be concerned with the appearance of your trees and the aesthetics they provide to your property. A properly cared for tree will look much more attractive on your property. Bad pruning, insect infestations and diseases can all decrease the attractiveness of a tree. Regular assessments, pruning and fertilization will help keep your trees looking great all year long.
