You know, sometimes we get so caught up in achieving the perfect lawn that our trees and shrubs get neglected. This is a problem especially in the fall, when we are generally busy preparing the soil and turf for the winter weather. This is why finding the right tree service is just as important as finding the right specialist to help with your lawn.
fall tree services: why they’re important
Just like your lawn, trees are vulnerable to all kinds of challenges, from drought and other weather conditions to pests. Sometimes, even fertilization can be overlooked, leaving your trees and shrubs at risk to disease and lawn damaging insects. It’s important to find a company that offers comprehensive tree services to help preserve the health and beauty of your trees. But what are some of the services you should be on the lookout for?
- Comprehensive evaluation of trees and shrubs. This kind of evaluation is very important, especially during your first time using any tree services company. It's important to establish what kinds of trees you have, what the current issues could be and how to solve them.
- Root fertilization. Just as your lawn benefits from fertilization in the fall, so do your trees. The key is to provide the optimal amount of fertilizer at the right time. Not enough and your trees and shrubs will suffer; too much fertilizer can actually kill the roots.
- Seasonal protection. Whether your trees need special nutrients that keep them healthy and strong or treatment to fend off seasonal bugs and diseases, an affordable tree service company should understand how the particulars of each season affects your trees and shrubs, and they should have effective treatments for them. For instance, providing overwintering insect control, late-season foliage protection and targeted trunk injections of micronutrients helps your trees and shrubs reach and maintain their full potential.
- Trimming and pruning. Pruning and trimming the dead or damaged parts of your trees greatly improves their health and appearance. Proper pruning helps maintain the size and shape of the plants, increases air and light penetration into the foliage canopy and promotes flowering and fruiting. Sometimes you even need a tree removal service for sick or damaged trees.
