Springtime is naturally one of our busiest times of the year. As trees and the garden flora burst back into life, so do Treescapes. One of the most important jobs that needs attention in the garden is tree pruning.
Treescapes is a well-respected, reputable and professional tree surgeon, Belfast based. Each year we prune hundreds of trees at this time of year, but do you know why tree pruning is essential for healthy tree growth? Here’s why:
The promotion of healthy growth:
Trees suffer during the harsh conditions of winter. Dead/dying wood and rotten branches need to be removed from the tree to promote healthy growth in the spring time.
Health and safety:
Branches that are rotten and dead/dying wood that is still attached to a tree are dangerous. These branches are potentially weakened and could fall from the tree at any time making them a health and safety hazard.
To help make trees stronger:
When a tree’s crown is too dense, particularly with new, vigorous spring growth, it’s essential to keep the tree professionally pruned and maintained. Thinning out branches allows the wind to pass safely through the tree with less resistance, making it stronger and less vulnerable to high winds. We know it’s almost springtime in Belfast but the winds and snow recently have made this an important consideration!
To maintain the tree at a manageable height:
Trees that grow out of control can be detrimental for many reasons. The tree could be blocking out light from both your property and your neighbours too. When a tree becomes too large for the space it occupies it can become a specialised job to either prune the tree back to a manageable size or to remove it completely. Regular tree maintenance and pruning will ensure trees don’t outgrow their space.
