The Importance of Time Tree Trimming

Posted by:

You see those branches out there? The ones that look a little out of place. Yes, those ones. The ones hanging out over the road and all over the sidewalk. It’s called trimming, and it’s more important than you think! We’ve all been there. You’re traveling or just too busy with work to take notice of trivial things like tree branches and then…BOOM! All of a sudden your tree looks like it had a run in with a giant bag of fertilizer and went all King-Kong on your yard! The good news is, there are things you can do to fix this twiggy situation and here at Bob Mar Lawn & Tree Service, we are here to help you. There is a reason why we are the best in tree trimming Miami and Palmetto Bay.


Why Is It Important To Trim Your Trees?

There are three parts to this answer. It makes them pretty, it makes them healthy, and it makes them safe. Let start with safety. Not usually a thing you think of when you’re gazing out your window at your southern live oak or bald cypress, but safety plays a big part in not only the trimming process but the overall safety of the area around your home. Trimming back dead branches or useless “shooters” lessens the potential fire danger should your tree, or any structures nearby catch fire for one. Another safety concern is debris on the ground. Not only can this be potentially dangerous for pedestrians, but if left unattended for long periods of time, dead plant matter can mold and rot which attracts insects. This can also happen within the tree itself. If dead matter if left untrimmed the decaying material can attract wood-boring insects which will weaken the tree and eventually cause it to fall.


Proper trimming of trees promotes health beyond that of just safety. You’ve heard the phrase: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? Better to prevent any safety hazards by promoting healthy tree growth. By removing any dead matter you are making room for the tree to grow new, sturdy branches and leaves, and instead of using its resources to combat disease and pests, it can now develop a healthier root system.
