Failing to effectively care for the trees on your property can result in these large plants potentially posing hazards for the rest of your property as well as the risk of the trees needing to be removed from the property. In this regard, tree maintenance services are able to offer a number of valuable services to their clients.

Tree Bracing

A tree that is starting the lean towards one side can be at risk of falling. Depending on the size of the tree and the structures surrounding it, there is a chance that this could cause sizable damage to the property or result in injuries. Luckily, it is possible to minimize this problem by having the tree braced. This will involve the use of using ties to secure the tree to support poles. In most cases, these poles will not be permanent, but they can support the tree while its roots establish a secure hold on the soil to stop the leaning.

Pest And Disease Treatment

Pests and disease can be a significant problem as failing to treat these issues can result in the trees potentially dying as well as the disease spreading to more plants. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help to limit the damage to your trees while neutralizing these problems. For example, many of the diseases that trees can develop may ultimately be the result of the soil not providing the plant with all of the nutrients that it needs to thrive. These deficiencies can lead to health problems for the plant as well as making it more vulnerable to a range of other issues.

Assess Storm Damage To The Trees

Strong winds, hail and flooding can also cause significant damage to the trees on your property. For this reason, it can be useful to have a tree fully assessed after any severe storms move through your area. In some instances, branches that you may have a difficult time seeing could have suffered fractures or breaks that may result in the branches eventually falling. These assessments may not take very long, but they can allow you to rapidly take steps to address the damage the trees suffered. This is especially important for any trees that are near your home or other structures. Otherwise, there could be a much greater risk of branches falling on the roof of the house and potentially causing extensive damage that could be costly to correct.
