3 Tree Care Tips For Homeowners
If you are a homeowner with trees, you’ll find these tips
helpful in keeping your trees healthy along with your pocketbook.
Tip #1 – Always Hire a Professional
Taking care of the day to day maintenance of your
landscaping and trees along with the smaller landscaping projects might be
something you are both willing and able to do, but when it comes to the bigger
projects, it is much better if you hire a professional tree care company or
arborist. Think of of it like this. You take care of your day to day
maintenance of your teeth by brushing and flossing, but you would never think
of doing your own dental work, or at least we hope not. The same principle
applies to your tree care. Like any other profession, there is work that requires
specific knowledge and training even with the proper care of your trees. In
fact, tree care can also be very dangerous, so leave that to the experts.
Tip #2: Ask Questions
There is no such thing as a stupid question. Do not be
afraid to ask the professionals. If you are unsure if what you are seeing on your
tree leaves is a disease, ask an arborist. If you are concerned about the
potential damage that a storm might do to your landscape, ask an arborist.
An arborist is a trained professional who has the knowledge
and expertise to care for your trees and other woody plants. This includes pruning,
fertilizing, transplanting, removing trees, consulting on tree related issues, monitoring
for insects and diseases, and sometimes planting new trees. Find a local tree
care professional to provide you with solutions you need for your landscaping
and tree care.
Tip #3 Visit the Tree Care Site Often
