Protect Tree Health on Your Property
The trees on your property may not be at the top of your daily priority list, and at Unlimbited Tree Service Inc., we understand that. You probably have more important things on your mind. However, it’s in your best interest to take the necessary steps to ensure your trees stay happy and healthy all year round.
Did you know a single healthy tree on a property can increase the value significantly? Healthy trees make a property look better, and everyone loves a little shade from time to time.
That’s why the team at Unlimbited Tree Service Inc. gives Maryland homeowners access to a range of services and advice that helps support the healthy growth and development of your trees, whether they’re a century-old or still just saplings.
Here’s your guide to protecting the health of a tree on your property over the course of its lifespan.
Choose A Tree That Fits The Environment
If you’re considering adding a tree to your property, it’s important to start out on the right foot by choosing a tree species that works to meet your needs. Foliage, climate, and individual property layout specifications are all important to consider when choosing a type of tree.
Working with a trusted arborist is always a good way to find a tree to suit your needs because they can assess your property and advise you on the needs of a tree that you put there. It’s also important to buy your tree from a trusted nursery, looking for any red flags before making your purchase. Once you’ve made your purchase and it’s time to plant, be sure to dig your hole and fill it to the recommendations given by the nursery or your arborist.
Providing Nourishment and Protection
Mulch and water are two essential ingredients for healthy trees of all kinds. As most people know, water is the lifeblood of all plants, including trees.
Each species of a tree requires water in different amounts, however, so it’s important to read up (or ask an expert from our team for advice) on your tree when developing your watering regimen. Depending on the time of year, Maryland can be very dry, so consider the weather when deciding whether to provide your tree with extra water.
Like water, mulch is also important for trees of all species and ages. Mulch sits atop the soil and retains water to keep tree roots moist. It also hinders weed growth and insulates the soil for extra defense against damaging heat and cold spells.
Caring for a tree isn’t as labor-intensive as caring for many other plants, but you’ll still need to know how to support your tree’s health over the course of its life. An expert from Unlimbited Tree Service Inc. can help.
Tree Pruning and Trimming
Virtually all trees can benefit from pruning at some point in their lives, and many benefits when trimming is done regularly. Proper pruning can improve the overall health and appearance of a tree while preventing any unwanted growth that may adversely affect your property.
To ensure your tree gets the best pruning possible, contact tree care experts in your area. Check out the tree pruning and trimming options available to you from the team at Unlimbited Tree Service Inc.
Diagnosis and Prevention
Another important facet of tree care is the identification, treatment, and prevention of diseases and pest infestations. In Maryland, diseases such as Dutch elm disease, chlorosis, and sycamore anthracnose are particularly common. Throughout the Midwestern and eastern United States, the emerald ash borer is a threat to ash trees. Diseases and infestations can spread quickly if untreated, so it’s important to consult with experts as soon as you detect a problem.
Whenever possible, the team at Unlimbited Tree Service Inc. will try to rescue a tree using a procedure known as tree surgery, during which we cut away diseased or infested parts of the tree to save the rest. In some cases, however, it’s better to remove a dead or dying tree to protect healthy trees in the same area. We can handle that too. Learn more about our safe tree removal service.
