Three Tips to Keep Your Trees Healthy From a Quality Tree Service Expert

Trees Need Some Care Too

Trees are the most valuable and hardest working parts of our landscape. They shade our homes and neighborhoods, cutting energy costs. They increase property values, reduce air pollution and soil erosion, and provide habitat for wildlife. Plus they add beauty and a calming presence to our everyday lives. Since they are such a peaceful, serene part of the background, it’s easy to forget that trees require our care to thrive. Proper tree maintenance is essential to their continued growth and ongoing health. With that in mind, here are three tips to keep your trees healthy from a quality tree removal service expert:

Plant the right tree.

This is the first, and one of the most important steps in making sure you get years of enjoyment from any tree. Choose a species that is well adapted to your climate and the specific conditions of soil, light, and space at the planting site.

Remove stakes early.

A tree that is allowed to sway in the wind develops a stronger trunk. If a new tree can’t stand on its own, use a two-stake system (one on either side of the root ball) with a loose, flexible tie in between to support the trunk. Remove the stakes as soon as the tree can stand alone, hopefully after one year.

Keep the grass away.

Grass growing up against the trunk competes with the tree for air, water, and nutrients (and usually wins the competition). Young trees, in particular, often develop poorly when the grass is allowed to grow right up against their trunks. For best results, maintain a grass-free, mulched area around the trunk instead.
