It Might be Tempting to Wait Until Hurricane Season for Tree Pruning, But Here Are 5 Signs Tree Pruning Can’t Wait on Your Property

We get it- you’ve got stuff to do, places to be. One more chore in your yard isn’t what you need. But waiting until you absolutely have to trim your trees (like when a hurricane is knocking on your door) might be more trouble than it’s worth.

Signs You Need To Get Your Trees Pruned

1. You Notice a Tree With Crossed Branches

Branches crossing may look like a cool craft done by nature, but it can be the beginning of an illness. Crossing branches might start to decay, spreading to other branches. This can lead to branches becoming brittle and susceptible to falling. The tree can even die.

Cutting off crossing branches can be a complicated process. We recommend getting a free consultation to see if a crossing branch should be removed so it can be done in the safest way

2. You Notice a Tree With Weak, Cracked, Diseased, or Dead Branches

When you’re looking at your trees, keep an eye out for a lot of cracks in the bark. These abundant cracks can signify that the tree is sick and in trouble. Luckily, cutting these branches off can save the tree from dying if caught soon enough. Cutting off diseased branches keeps the tree healthy. Dead branches can also slow the growth of a tree and should be removed to give the tree the best chance of flourishing.

Weak branches can easily break free from a tree and damage the tree, property, or people. Pruning these branches is a fast and easy way to keep everyone and everything safe.

3. You Notice a Tree Close to Power Lines

Trees close to power lines should be watched to ensure the branches aren’t growing too close. A professional tree pruning team can safely work around power lines to ensure the tree is kept far away from the power line. If the tree falls or a branch breaks free, proper pruning can help prevent damage.

4. You Notice a Tree is Misshapen

While trees and trunks come in all shapes and sizes, trees that are growing in the wrong directions, have strange lumps, or are growing toward something they shouldn’t be (like your home or power line) should be dealt with. Misshapen trees can also have poor weight distribution, breaking, and falling.

If you’re not sure if a tree qualifies as misshapen, request a free consultation, and we can help make sure your trees are safe.

5. You Notice a Tree is Growing Too Large

Everyone loves a big tree. But when they grow too large, they can cause safety concerns. Pruning large trees can help reduce their size and impact in the event of a fall.
