During the cold winter months, our yards are the last thing that we think about typically. It’s usually rainy and just not an inviting environment to want to get dirty in. The dormant trees and flowers get overlooked, along with the once, green grass. But this doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to get a jump on the spring yard work, now. Tree trimming, most certainly, is an option.
Don’t procrastinate. When the warm spring and summer months roll around again, we wish that we would’ve done some easy pre-season touch-ups. Tree trimming can be done at any time of the year. Just don’t get it confused with tree pruning. Pruning is only done at specific times of the tree’s growth, typically in the early spring. Pruning at the wrong time of the year can cause tree damage.
Why Trim Trees
There are a few specific reasons to do tree trimming now. Let’s look at why:
- Healthier, Happier Trees. Just as humans like to get haircuts on a regular basis, so do trees. Tree service companies will agree that trees that get trimmed professionally, allow more sunlight to penetrate through for better health. The trimming process will take out the uneven branches for a better, even look to your tree and yard, overall.
Trees that are trimmed actually live longer and are less apt to lose their branches and leaves, foregoing any damage from wind-blown loose branches.
- More Money In Your Pocket. With the best look, your yard can give you money back in your pocket if you are looking to sell your property. A good rule of thumb per real estate companies can be upwards of a generous 14% rate of return on a good looking, healthy yard.
You don’t have to go overboard on what you have, as long as what you do have is well taken care of and maintained.
