Many homeowners look at the majestic shade tree in the backyard and think that it’s just fine the way it is, that Mother Nature is doing her job and taking good care of it. For many trees, that is the case; but for some trees, a little human intervention is necessary.
Trees can need many different types of care services. As trees grow and mature, there are a few things that can be done to extend their lives and allow your family to enjoy their beauty and shade for years to come. For instance:
- Crown thinning is the removal of select branches and limbs which allows for more sunlight and increased airflow. It also reduces weight and bulk in highly stressed areas of the tree.
- If you’ve hit your head on a tree branch when mowing the yard or playing fetch with the dog recently, it might be time for canopy raising. Raising the canopy of the tree is simply the removal of the lower layer of limbs to allow for plenty of head room, all while maintaining a beautifully symmetrical and healthy tree.
- Have you ever gotten pins or rods implanted in your bones or joints during surgery? A similar type of bolting can be used to ensure the health of your trees. When bolting a tree, threaded steel is installed in weak, cracked or splitting joints to add stability and years to a tree’s life.
