Does Your Tree Need To Be Trimmed?

Lynn Lee

Spring ushers in warmer weather and longer days. Spring also marks the start of the growing season for many of the plants found in your home's landscape. Mature trees need to be examined during the early spring months to determine if professional trimming is required.

Know what to look for as you take a closer look at the trees in your home's landscape this spring.

Damaged Branches

Spring is the perfect time to check your trees for damaged branches. It can be difficult to spot broken or dead branches once a full canopy of leaves has developed, so monitor your trees to determine when they start budding. Once the buds are visible, you can easily spot any branches that do not have buds lining their length.

Schedule a tree trimming appointment to ensure that any dead, diseased, or damaged branches are removed to help maintain the health of your tree through the spring and summer months.

Proximity to Rooflines

Another important thing to look for when visually inspecting your mature trees this spring is the proximity of all branches to the roofline of your home, shed, or garage. Any branches that are close to these buildings should be trimmed before leaves have developed.

The leaves will add weight to the branches, causing them to sag and come into contact with the buildings on your property. Be sure that you consider how the position of each branch will change once weighed down with leaves so that you can prevent damage with timely trimming.

Overall Appearance

Mature trees should complement the design of your home and landscape, not detract from it. Regular trimming is the best way to ensure that the trees in your yard maintain the right aesthetic.

Check the growth pattern of each branch to determine if it is in keeping with the desired shape of your tree. If you spot branches that might look unruly or unkempt once they are filled with leaves, you will want to schedule a tree trimming appointment. Trimming your mature trees in the spring will give you trees that are aesthetically pleasing throughout the growing season.

Tree trimming plays an important role in the health, safety, and appearance of your trees. Trimming damaged, unruly, or potentially dangerous branches during the spring will help you rest assured that you can enjoy the mature trees in your landscape without worry during the spring and summer months.
