Call in Your Lititz Plant Center Professionals When it comes to Tree Pruning

Oaks, maples, magnolias, Japanese cherry trees, dogwoods – there are so many varieties of trees and virtually all of them are great for enhancing your landscape design. Of course, having trees means from time to time, it will be necessary to plan a day to do some pruning. You can do this yourself or hire the pros from your local plant center, but it is a necessary job!

Why Tree Pruning is Necessary …

Some homeowners make the decision to use a plethora of trees in their landscape design, but think pruning is not necessary. However, pruning is necessary for the following reasons:

  • It gets rid of disease-damaged and weak branches.
  • You can shape the trees to grow the way you want them to, thus enhancing the tree’s appearance.
  • Pruning the trees makes it easier to for people to see driveways and streets, as well as making room for power lines, and home elements like gutters, windows and even buildings.
  • It will reduce clean up and damage related to storm.
  • Can actually correct damage caused by storms.
  • Helps keep the landscaping looking balanced.
  • Improves the quality of the tree’s silhouette, as well as any flowers or fruit the tree may produce.
  • Great-looking trees actually give your property a better resale value.

Hire a Tree Pruning Pro or DIY?

Of course, pruning trees incorrectly is just as bad as not pruning them at all. So, if you are unsure about how to take care of your trees, then hiring people from your local plant center will make a big difference. A plant center will have qualified tree pruners who know exactly what they are doing. In fact, consider these reasons for choosing a plant center professional, also known as an arborist, to prune your trees.

  • A professional tree service will know how which branches to remove in order to help the tree be more productive.
  • Because they work for a plant center, they will be more aware of any diseases currently affecting local trees, and will know how to treat them.
  • A professional will know how much can be pruned without causing damage to the tree.
  • Certified arborists can typically be found at the plant center and are trained in many aspects of tree care; their priority is to maintain safe and healthy trees.
  • You can avoid improper pruning such as topping or heading the tips of the branches, which can permanently damage a tree and create more unwanted or hazardous growth.

Taking care of one of the key elements of your landscape design is important. However, you don’t have to go it alone.
