Difference Between Tree Trimming and Pruning

Tree trimming and tree pruning are both important tree management tasks that should be maintained and completed on a regular basis. While some people may feel these services are the same, there are clear differences between the two. So, what is the difference between tree trimming and pruning?

4 Ways To Avoid Making Tree Pruning Mistakes

One of the most important steps in caring for your trees is pruning. While most trees found around your house require very little maintenance, you still want to encourage healthy growth in your trees as well as keeping control over the trees by keeping them pruned regularly. Below are 5 tips to avoid those tree pruning mistakes. 1. Don’t Over Prune Those Trees! Keep in mind that more is less when pruning those trees. Try not to prune more than 20 percent of a trees foliage. Going past 20 percent will cost stress to the tree and it will not be able to transfer nutrients.

That goes for any cutting blade as well. You may [...]

Fall: The Best Time for a Trim

Fall time. So many things come to mind when we think fall. Pumpkins, cooler weather and of course, leaves falling down from the trees in our yards. Below are some reasons why Fall is a good time to get those trees trimmed. 1. Skip the mess. You do not have as much mess to clean up, compared to if you do it in the summer or spring — especially if you do it after the leaves all fall down and you have to rake them all. If you did it in the spring or summer, you would have leaves, sticks and all other kinds of things in your yard. 2. Be nice to your trees. If you do it in the fall after everything is not blooming, you don’t have to worry about messing up your blooming trees by accidentally cutting them off. And again, you would not have a ton of mess to clean up. [...]

Why Should I Remove A Tree Stump From My Yard?

Whether you have just removed a tree from your yard, paid a company to do it for you, or a storm blew your tree down, the remaining stump needs some attention. While stump removal is usually an extra expense, it is well worth it in the long run. Not convinced that you need to take the stump out of your yard? Here are some reasons that you should consider when deciding for or against stump removal. Safety Many times, stumps in your yard aren’t in convenient, low-traffic areas. If a stump is cut low to the ground, it can be hard to see and present a tripping hazard for anyone walking nearby. Toddlers have enough trouble walking on level ground, and when you throw a stump into the mix, there will be more (and might I add, unnecessary!) injuries. Have you ever run over a tree root or stump when you are mowing? The damage [...]

Improving Grass Growth By Reducing Shade

If your grass is struggling to grow thick, green, and healthy, it is likely that you have too much shade in your yard. Symptoms that indicate excessive shade include long, thinning grass leaves, elevated moss growth, deteriorated plant vigor, and turfgrass disease. If you are aware of how shade affects grass growth, you can give your yard the care it needs to thrive. Ways That Shade Affects Turf Growth In order for photosynthesis to work best, sunlight and airflow need to be consistent. Below are several ways that shade can affect grass growth: Trees with a large canopy tend to steal the sunlight from the grass; trees with shallow roots compete with grass roots for nutrients; grass on the north side of houses do not receive enough sunlight; yards surrounded by low bushes, large canopy trees, and buildings do not receive steady air flow. When a portion of your yard lacks consistent sunlight and air [...]
