Tree trimming services are the practice of pruning, thinning, and trimming in built surroundings. Greenways, street verge, park and garden woody plants are also on the top of the list of priority for tree maintenance service providers. A wide array of landscape products are also available for the regular trimming of trees. These include hedge trimmers, landscaping sheers, tree stilts, and chain link fences.
There are various reasons why a tree may need to be trimmed, or even removed. The most common reasons involve tree roots which cause damage to homes and gardens, but other reasons include tree growth that affects landscape or building aesthetics and health of surrounding areas.
Tree trimming is an important task undertaken by certified arborists in order to maintain healthy and attractive landscapes. A certified arborist is an arborist who has been trained and experienced in tree care. An arborist may also refer his or her customers to licensed and experienced contractors and landscapers who offer tree trimming services. Trimming the tree and removal of branches are the two main procedures. These procedures are normally done in order to clean up unwanted foliage and branches from the tree. Sometimes these methods are combined so as to improve the overall look of a landscape.
The first step in tree trimming is identifying and assessing the tree. To do this, you will have to get close enough to the trunk and branches to determine what the tree needs. The best way to determine if a tree requires cutting is to listen carefully to its sound. A tree should sound hollow or rattle when a branch or leaf is about to fall off.
Once the trees are identified, the professionals will begin cutting the trunk and limbs, especially when it’s difficult to do so. They can perform pruning, trimming on their own or they can use a chain saw for more intricate tasks. Once the limbs are cut, the arborist then takes a piece of plywood and “stips” it across the trunk. or branch where the cut is to allow room for new growth. If it is a large tree with a lot of branches, they’ll need to leave at least one inch between each bit of the timber. For smaller trees, they can “stip” several pieces together to help increase the width and density. and overall length.
After stippling, the professionals can apply a chemical that is applied to the wood to help stop root rot and decay. The wood will then be treated with a solvent that inhibits growth and decay. This is followed by drying the wood to prevent cracking or flaking.
