Tree Pruning and Trimming
There are many reasons for pruning and trimming trees. You prune and trim for safety, health, and aesthetics.
You do not want dead limbs hanging on your trees above your head. These dead limbs can come crashing down at any moment with a gust of wind, snow and ice or just naturally falling from decay. They could fall on your house, driveway or sidewalk, or the deck where you grill out. Proper tree maintenance can prevent and protect you and your household.
This involves pruning or trimming a tree to remove diseased or storm-damaged branches, thinning the crown to permit new growth and better air circulation, or to remove hindering lower branches. Removing diseased, damaged or dead plant parts speeds the formation of callus tissue and sometimes limits the spread of insects and disease. Proper pruning influences fruiting and flowering. Properly pruning flower buds encourages early vegetative growth. Late winter or early spring, before bud break, is usually the best time to prune many species because new tissue forms rapidly.
Pruning a tree is an art of giving your tree a certain distinguishing characteristic and for the stimulation of flower production. This can be a direct correlation of you as a person. Pruning can be very important to trees that do very little self-pruning.
Storm Damage / Emergency Tree Service
Every year in Georgia storms roll in and cause minor to major damage to trees. Pine trees are commonly damaged in various ways, including – blown down, stem failure, crown twist, root failure, branch failure and lightning strike. A tree service professional can determine the safest ways to remove, repair or replace storm and wind-damaged trees.
Stem failure is where the stem on a tree is damaged. Trees do not heal wounds; rather they just grow over the old wounds making the stem weaker. Crown twist is where broken limbs cause an asymmetrical tree. This asymmetry causes heavy winds to exert a heavy torque on the major branches of the tree a can cause the tree to fall.
Root failure is when the roots that support the tree are damaged. This can be done by boxing the tree in such as a sidewalk, pavement or foundation. Compaction around the root of the tree and toxic materials can cause the roots of a tree to weaken or die in turn toppling or killing the tree.
A branch is attached to a tree by a small layer of stem wood called the branch collar. Branches are designed to come off at times and a healthy tree will seal off that spot over time. Ice storms or downbursts that occur can leave the branches unprepared and susceptible to tearing downward along the stem or snapping. Proper pruning will help minimize the destruction with the new wood growth around the branch.
Lightning strike is where lightning strikes a tree moving downward down the trunk of the tree or in a narrow line down the branches, stems and roots. Lightning destroys the live tissue of the tree with electrical current and heat it generates. Damage caused by lightning causes water loss and invasive pests quickly move into to the tree.
