Did you know that some types of trees resist wind better than others? Did you know that trees that are native to the area also withstand hurricanes better than non-native trees? Scientists at the University of Florida tracked the impact of hurricanes on trees and made these interesting conclusions.
No matter what type of trees you have on your property, it's important to hire a professional tree trimmer for many reasons, not just in preparation for a hurricane. Let's look at why it's a good idea to contact a tree trimming service for your Jacksonville home.
The scientists at UF also discovered that well-pruned trees fair better in a storm. If your tree has dead or diseased branches, they are likely to break and fall off in high wind and rainstorms. Falling tree limbs are dangerous and can cause serious injury as well as damage to your home, your property, and your neighbor's home. Overgrown trees near power lines are a serious safety risk as well. They need to be trimmed so as not to interfere with the cables.
2. Tree Growth and Health
Professional tree services are designed to save your trees from the effects of overgrowth. When branches are allowed to get too thick, airflow into the tree's canopy is prohibited and leads to decay and disease. Fungus can also develop. An unhealthy tree may not survive. Fruit trees produce larger and more fruit when they are trimmed properly and periodically.
When trees are part of your overall landscaping, it is important to trim them so the limbs aren't blocking sun and rain from reaching the plants and grass underneath. Dead grass and plants ruin your curb appeal. If your trees get overgrown, it changes the appearance of your landscaping design. The tree might look lopsided or unbalanced.An overgrown tree may also block your view from your window or to a lake, golf course, or pond.
4. Good for the Environment
Think about the environment around your trees. All of the elements depend on each other. If your tree is blocking the sun or is diseased or infested with pests or insects, this will affect your surrounding plants. If branches are close to the house, insects have easy access to your home. A well-trimmed tree will be healthy and will allow the plants and grass around it to thrive.
