Why Work with Professionals When Pruning a Tree
Tree pruning is a complicated procedure – it entails much more than cutting branches randomly. Working with professional tree pruners, however, uncomplicates the entire procedure by:
1. Improving Safety
Climbing a tree puts you at the risk of falling and suffering heavy injuries. When working alone, you may not be able to control the branches you cut – if you are pruning a tree near your house, the branches may fall on the house and force you to spend thousands on repairs.
Professionals will have the gear needed to make tree pruning safe. For example, bucket trucks and ropes will allow them to bring the branches down without causing damage. Armed with a safety harness and other safety gear, professionals won’t be risking falling from the tree.
2. Guaranteeing Tree Health
Cutting the wrong branches can damage a tree. Allowing the cut branches to break the healthy branches on their way down means heavy injuries for the tree. All this can happen if you decide to turn tree pruning into a DIY.
With years of experience, however, professionals will understand which branches to remove, how to remove these branches, and how to safely bring the branches down without harming your tree.
3. Helping You Save Money
Tree pruning tools cost a lot of money, and if you are pruning a tree for the first time, you won’t have ladders, shears, saws, hand-held pruners, and more. This means you will have to go out and purchase the tools.
When working with professionals, however, the thousands of dollars you would have spent on tree pruning tools are scrubbed from your budget. The tree pruners will come with their tools, meaning you won’t need to purchase anything.
Tree Pruning Tips
If you are short on cash, DIY tree pruning might seem like a perfect way to save some money. DIY pruning, however, is only safe for homeowners with small trees that carry zero risks.
When pruning a tree, there are some things you will need to keep in mind:
Pay Attention to Branch Diameter
To avoid damaging your tree, remove branches with a diameter of below 5 cm. Branches with a diameter of more than 5 cm should only be removed to improve safety or to get rid of a health problem.
Clean Cuts Only
Do not go up the tree with a blunt cutting tool. Otherwise, you will end up injuring the tree. Use a sharp tool to cut between the branch ridge and collar.
Remove V-Angled Branches
Branches forming weak V-angles with the trunk can be gotten rid of. However, those that form strong U-shaped angles should be left on the tree.
Sanitize Your Tools
Use rubbing alcohol with a concentration of at least 70%. This should keep you from spreading pests and diseases from one tree to the other.
Preventative Tree Pruning
If not properly maintained, trees can turn into safety hazards. With a preventative tree pruning procedure that focuses on the following areas, restoring safety should be easy:
- Remove branches that are blocking views on roads and pathways
- Bring down branches weakly attached to the tree
- Broken limbs should be removed to keep them from falling
- Any decaying branch should be removed as soon as possible
