Everything really starts to perk up in the springtime. The grass starts to grow (like weeds), the trees start budding out, and we start getting busy with all of our outdoor projects. What can you do to make sure the trees in your yard look their best for the coming summer?
Remove dead branches and trees. This is something that can be done any time of year, and will drastically improve the appearance of your trees and surrounding areas. In addition, it will prevent these branches from falling on objects people such as your car, garage, house, or even people.
Prune flowering trees only after their blossoms fade. This is to enhance flowering for the years ahead, and/or to encourage fruit production.
Remove branches that rub together. Rubbing branches can decrease the health of your tree. Eventually, all that rubbing could result in a dead or weak branch, creating eyesore and a potential falling hazard.
Prune trees and shrubs to control plant size. The appearance of your landscape is part of what makes your plants useful, and pruning can keep everything well-balanced and healthy.
Remove trees and branches that are a safety hazard. This can include branches that are touching power lines, obstructing traffic signs, blocking sidewalks, and those that hinder your view of traffic at stops or corners.
Prune newly planted trees. As preventative maintenance, pruning is your best bet to keep young trees healthy and well formed, as well as help them develop a strong structure.
