Why Hire Professional Tree Pruners?
1. To Avoid Tree Damage
If you have been checked out tree pruning videos or watched professionals working on a tree in the neighborhood, your idea of pruning a tree could be cutting random branches. Tree pruning, however, is more completed than that – removing the wrong branches could damage or even kill your tree.
Professional tree pruners use tree pruning procedures that encourage quick healing. Using their knowledge about tree biology, professionals will only remove branches that benefit either the tree’s health or appearance.
2. Avoid Property Damage
Imagine what would happen if a huge branch landed on your car or house. You would probably spend thousands of dollars in the garage or working with home repairers. DIY tree pruning increases the chances of suffering property damage.
With their ropes, bucket trucks, and cranes, professionals will lower down the cut branches without causing damage to your home. Compared to the property repair costs, the cost of hiring professional tree pruners is much lower.
3. Avoid Injuries
Climbing to the top of a tree puts you at the risk of falling. Using sharp tools when pruning a tree means that you may end up with deep cuts. Working with professional tree pruners, however, means that you can avoid all these risks.
4. Professionals Assist with Cleanup
Tree pruning is just half of the tree maintenance procedure. The second half involves dealing with the waste generated by the process. Working with professionals gives access to a team that is willing to clean your compound and trucks that can carry the waste to a suitable dumpsite. This helps you save more time.
5. You Save Money
Property damages and injuries are always a risk when pruning a tree. Hospital bills and/or home repairs are extremely costly and generally worth more than professional tree pruning cost.
If you are pruning a tree for the first time, you will have to visit the local hardware to get the needed tree pruning gear. In some cases, these tools may be costlier than hiring professionals.
Tree Pruning Tips
DIY tree pruning is ideal for homeowners with small trees. If these trees are far away from utilities, you won’t be risking property damage. However, if you don’t know how to prune a tree, you will probably damage the tree instead. The following tips should help you prune your tree correctly:
- Use sharp tools to cut branches – this reduces the possibility of tree injury.
- Cut the branches between the collar and the ridge – do not leave a huge stub or cut too close to the trunk.
- Remove pest-infested or diseased branches.
- Branches with a diameter of less than 5 cm are safe to remove.
- Branches with a diameter of more than 10 cm need more consideration – only remove them to improve safety or tree health.
- Use rubbing alcohol to sanitize your tools.
Preventative Tree Pruning
Pruning a tree can help homeowners prevent accidents, injuries and property damages – this is known as preventative pruning. In Sant Cruz, CA, preventative pruning means removing branches that are threatening to fall and cutting limbs that are blocking visibility on driveways, walkways, and even bicycle paths.
