Can you believe that summer is upon us? It seems like only yesterday we were dealing with cold and snowy weather. There are several reasons why summer is exciting, and one of them is that it is time to prune and trim some of your Belleville, IL home’s trees.

Tree Trim

Not all trees get pruned during the colder months. This is why it is important to have a professional tree trimming team to make sure your trims are done safely and are necessary for your home’s specific trees. There are four main reasons why you should look into getting your home’s trees pruned and trimmed.

Trim Your Trees for Safety.

No matter if you are a homeowner or a business owner, the last thing you want is for someone to get injured or a vehicle to get damaged by a fallen tree branch. Typically, in the Belleville, IL area we get snow and ice each year, so your trees may be losing a little worse after they thaw out in the warmer weather. However, summer storms are another time in which your trees can become damaged. As the weather warms up, our areas get a ton of storms which can increase the damage to your trees.

Damage Repair

In order to make sure that your tree is healthy, make sure that you remove any dead limbs as soon as you can. Disease and rot are two common problems that can result from having damaged or dead branches in place for too long.

Trim Your Trees To Have a Long-Life

Trees are the healthiest when the entire tree is able to grow together. Trees can become stressed if there are limbs that are not regularly pruned and trimmed. This could lead to them becoming more resource-constrained and will compromise their overall health. While it may seem weird that trimming and pruning the trees in order to improve their health, you will be able to notice the difference.

Curb Appeal

Tree Care

You do not want any dead branches to be the first thing that guests to your home and business will see. While you are able to trim and prune on your own, you can end up causing your trees more issues in the long run. Many tree pruning appointments take place around this time of year and are important for any homeowner with trees in their yard.
