One of the many great things about Nashville and Middle Tennessee is its beautiful, lush greenery. All around Metro, Franklin and Brentwood, the Parke Company works hard to keep trees, both old and new, healthy and prosperous. However, it’s the older trees that sometimes need the most tender, loving care. If you have tall trees on your lawns and landscape and you know they need a little extra help or support, consider calling for tree care services. This will not only increase the life of the tree in your lawn, but it will also keep you and your family safe from falling branches or the tree itself.
- Cabling — This tree service provides structural support for established trees on its weak joints. Cabling can oftentimes be confused with staking a tree. Staking a tree is a procedure done to anchor the tree to the ground for temporary support, whereas cabling is above ground and is completed for more permanent tree care.
- Crown Thinning — A lot like pruning, crown thinning is the removal of branches and limbs to reduce the weight of the tree, particularly in highly stressed areas. Crown thinning is also done to increase light and airflow throughout the tree.
- Weight Reduction — This is similar to crown thinning in that it is the removal of branches and limbs to reduce the weight of a tree. However, typically these branches are heavier, lower-level branches.
These three tree care services should only be done by a trained arborists or tree care specialists. Don’t let your beautiful, old trees become a victim of the harsh elements outside. If you see a tree on your lawns or landscape that needs these services, be sure to call the Parke Company today to schedule an appointment.
