Trees seem like they will be fine on their own, and for the most part, they could be. However, unexpected issues could come about at any time, and when it comes to trees, the issues could be quite costly and dangerous. Falling branches and falling trees can do a lot of damage. Fortunately, you can reduce the chances of a problem occurring by having them trimmed or pruned.
Identify and Address Issues Early
Heavy storms periodically come to the Wilmington area, and in addition to heavy rain, these storms could bring extreme wind with them. A big gust of wind could easily take down a tree or a large branch. This is especially true if the tree is diseased or damaged in any way. If it is, it won’t be as structurally sound, and it could potentially fall on one of your vehicles or your house. The resulting situation could be very expensive to fix.
At A+ Tree & Landscaping, we can examine your trees to see if they’re vulnerable in any areas. If we do find any areas of concern, we will let you know and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. We can remove the damaged part of the tree, or if necessary, the entire tree, in a safe manner. Having a large branch or a tree come down in a controlled manner is the best way to avoid a potentially devastating situation from arising in the future.
Regular Pruning Is Helpful
Pruning can be so important for trees. When we prune trees for our local customers in Wilmington, we look for dead or weaker branches that need to be removed. This prevents them from falling down unexpectedly, and it allows more opportunities for new growth. A younger branch can start to develop more robustly if it’s not being overshadowed by something else.
Removing dead and weak parts of a tree also protects the tree from getting infested by infections or pests, which could otherwise be attracted to the vulnerable wood. Pruning could be used as a way for you to shape a tree as well. If you don’t want a tree to be too close to your home or your driveway, for example, we can cut it back in certain areas. We have the tools and knowledge necessary to handle this job correctly, and we assure you that safety is our top priority.
