If you’re like most property owners, you probably don’t put too much thought into caring for your trees. Other than watering during dry spells and cleaning up the leaves that fall underneath them in the autumn, the majority of people let nature handle the rest.

While trees are pretty self-sufficient, to maintain their health and beauty, they do need a little help. If they’re left to their own will, they can become overgrown, unsightly, and downright dangerous. Regular tree trimming is the easiest way to avoid these problems; plus, it helps to improve their overall appeal.

Here’s a look at some of the top reasons why you should hire an arborist to perform routine trimming.

Supports their Health

When trees are left to grow naturally, their structural integrity can be compromised. They’re also more prone to disease. By removing overgrown branches and limbs, less stress will be placed on the structure, thereby improving the overall strength of the tree. If any of the branches are diseased or decayed, trimming will prevent the rest of the tree from damage. Additionally, the removal of excess branches improves airflow and increases sun exposure, which benefits the entire tree. Removing excess branches also ensures that essential nutrients and water are distributed to all parts of the tree, further improving its health.

It Reduces Safety Risks

When trees are allowed to grow wildly, they can become a liability. Untamed trees are more likely to topple, as it’s difficult for the structure to support oversized branches. High winds or heavy snowfall can knock excessively large or diseased branches down. Overgrown branches can become intertwined with power lines, increasing the risk of power outages and fire.

All of these issues are serious safety concerns. To avoid the risk of branches or the entire tree from falling on top of an unsuspecting person or animal, starting a fire, or knocking out the power, regular trimming is essential.

Regular Trimming Avoids Damage

An overgrown tree can become its own worst enemy. When cumbersome branches rub against each other, they pull vital bark off the tree, which can result in extensive damage. A dense canopy might provide great shade for you, but it can cast too much shade on the tree, which can prevent the penetration of crucial sunlight. Dense branches also minimize the amount of air that flows through the structure, which can also lead to damage. Overgrown trees not only damage themselves; they can also damage other property. For example, large branches can rub into the side of your house and scratch, dent, or break the siding.

By scheduling routine trimmings with a professional tree care company, you can prevent serious damage.

It Saves Money

Believe it or not, trimming your trees can actually save you quite a bit of money. Since it can help to reduce the risk of serious damage to the structure and surrounding property and minimize the risk of injuries, you can avoid paying exorbitant repair costs and medical bills. Sure, you’ll have to pay for the service, but if you hire a reputable company that charges fair prices, you’ll actually save a lot more in the long run.

It Boosts Curb Appeal

Lastly, having your trees trimmed on a regular basis will significantly improve the curb appeal of your property. Overgrown trees can be quite unsightly. Dead and damaged branches aren’t exactly visually appealing, either. By removing excess growth and damaged branches, the aesthetics of the structure – and your property – will be enhanced. Plus, since regular trimming helps to improve the health of a tree, the beauty of your broad-leafed and evergreen friends will 

be enhanced, and your entire property will be even more picturesque.
