Now that summertime is just about here, it is about time we looked at how to take care of your garden, trees and hedges safely throughout the warmer months.
As the British sun starts to beam down, occasionally, on your garden area, your trees and growths will start to come into leaf. This is the perfect time to give your trees a health check and include with this a clean-up of dead branches and broken leaves.
Dead Branches and Leaves
Over the winter your trees will have been battered by all weathers and in most cases, there will have been a lack of nutrition and damaged branches or branches prone to splintering. If this is the case, there is a severe danger for anyone in the area and even neighbouring properties due to the risk of collapsing and falling heavy branches.
Finding these branches and broken parts of the tree is so much easier when it starts coming up to spring and summer. The easiest way to identify these broken areas is by waiting until the rest of the tree starts to sprout new growth, and those damaged areas obviously won’t.
Our team are more than capable of spotting these dead areas of your tree and safely cutting them back to avoid fallen branches and poorly maintained trees. Get in touch for tree care, pruning, maintenances and protection that you can trust.
Top Signs to Look Out For
When it comes to inspecting trees on your property, there are some tell-tale signs to look out for in regards to damaged limbs and branches. Our team are able to come out and check any damage prone trees for you on site and provide you with quotes as to what services you may need to keep these as safe as possible.
Those trees that are more than likely going to be damaged in the run-up to summer include:
- Aged trees
- Trees with larger canopies
- Trees that have large foliage and a larger leaf
- Branches that are rubbing against each other on the same tree or neighbouring trees
Summer Tree Pruning
Summer tree pruning is really all about timing and when you choose to carry out the protection and maintenance work. It is so important to make sure that whatever work you carry out doesn’t hold any stress on the trees themselves.
As summer is a great time for a tree to be at peak health and not dormant, the replenished energy that the tree has will help it recover from coppicing and pruning. Our professional surgeons are able to work carefully with your trees in order to keep them healthy all year round and give each tree the chance to grow properly without further damaging it or the surrounding growth.
Benefits of Summer Pruning
There are so many benefits to pruning your trees in the summer, and the biggest is that it just overall looks better!
As well as having the best-looking trees on your street, you can sleep easy knowing your trees are free from danger, not a hazard to the public or other trees and that your trees are growing healthily all year round.
Pruning can also give way to new growth and reduce the stress on the surrounding trees in the fight for nutrition and light. All trees are living things and need the care they deserve all year round to grow properly without damaging their surroundings, so why not get in touch and start your journey today?
