Making Your Trees Safe and Inviting for Your Kids

When many people talk about trees, they talk about pruning them or blocking their roots from hitting sidewalks or other things. I rarely hear anyone talk about making their trees more hospitable for their kids. Hi, my name is Gina. I am the mum of four sons, and if they couldn't climb the trees in our yard, they would be jumping on my furniture and climbing my walls all day long. Luckily, I have a friend who works in the tree service industry, and he has helped me with everything from assessing the safety of dead branches to adding swings to the trees to pruning them for easier climbing. As he can't be everywhere, I decided to share the tips and tricks I've learned from him and from our experience with trees. Enjoy!

3 Ways Your Local Tree Lopping Service Can Save Your Decorative Trees

Choosing to have decorative trees as part of your landscape, you may think that simple pruning will keep them looking their best. Though proper pruning is vital to the health and appearance of your decorative trees, it may not prevent them from illness and disease. If your decorative trees have fallen ill, consider the following ways your local tree lopping service can save them and keep your landscape looking just the way you like it.

Tree Surgery

One of the tasks that a tree lopping service can handle is tree surgery. Tree surgery takes on the illness or disease that is attacking your decorative trees and shrubs by pruning and removing the dead or infected areas. You may think this is something you could handle on your own, but depending on the actual illness attacking your trees, and the type of decorative tree you choose, you may not be able to see exactly where or how the illness is spreading. 

An experienced tree surgeon and tree lopper will be able to diagnosis what is attacking your decorative tree, determine the best way to prune the infected areas, and the best way to treat the tree based on the type of tree and environment.

Tree Transplanting

You may not be thinking ahead to what may happen if the decorative tree you have chosen is too far gone with disease. If this is the case, an option to consider is tree transplanting. Your local tree lopping service can take healthy cuttings from your trees and begin to transplant them into different locations on the property. This will allow you to save a living part of your decorative tree and create new trees on your landscape.

Disease Treatments

In most cases, your decorative tree may be facing a disease that is treatable. If your local tree lopping service finds that your tree is facing a treatable disease, they can design a treatment plan. This treatment plan can attack the current diseased portions of your decorative trees and help prevent the disease from spreading. They can then work on a plan for on-going treatment and further disease prevention.

You may think that these are tasks that could save any tree on your property. The truth is, they are the same services that could be used on other trees. However, these tasks are especially important to saving your decorative trees since most decorative options require more knowledge and careful care based on their origin and environment. This knowledge is something a tree lopping service will have and will be able to offer you as part of their service menu.
