Tree Trimming

Trees require maintenance to continue growing, and trimming is a necessary part of that maintenance. Trimming might not be rocket science, but there is a science to it, and if you don’t do it properly, you could unwittingly do more harm than good. Also, getting to the high-reaching places to trim is not a good do-it-yourself project; it can be dangerous, which is why hiring Tree Men for your trimming is a must to keep both you and your trees protected.

Trimming for Structural Integrity and Tree Health

Trimming is a necessary maintenance tool for several reasons, like the structural integrity of a tree and its overall health. If branches begin to encroach upon areas surrounding the tree, like electrical wires or overhanging roofs, then they must be trimmed back. If you trim a tree correctly, you can help to enhance its structure and keep the tree balanced. Trimming will also ensure the tree’s aesthetics. Several factors need to be considered when trimming a tree so that you maintain its proper thickness and reduce weight. If unbalanced growth continues, a tree is likelier to fall due to wind or other weather-related conditions.

Addressing Special Soil Conditions in Mt. Pleasant and Charleston

Charleston soil is extremely sandy, so hurricane and high wind threats are serious. Trimming trees regularly is necessary to reduce tree loss due to sandy conditions limiting deep root systems. If your tree is top-heavy or unbalanced, saturated soil due to rain can increase the risk of tree loss. Tree experts in the Charleston area need to be very cognizant and adjust to the regional soil and weather climate when trimming trees.

Doing It Wrong is Worse Than Not Doing It At All

Trimming takes a specific knowledge base, and if it’s not performed correctly, it can actually be worse for your tree than not trimming at all. If you trim too close to the trunk or strip the bark, it can reduce your tree’s health and structural soundness. The reality is, it is better not to trim it than to do it improperly. That is why it is so critical to hire experts like Tree Men. We have the experience, training, and most of all an understanding of why trimming is done and how best to do it.
