Trimming the tree by yourself. What can go wrong?
The owners of gardens with large trees usually know how hard it is to get rid of dry limbs, to support weak branches and to fight against pests and tree diseases. However, if you want your tree to be healthy and to bring rich harvest, you must trim trees from time to time.
It is not always possible to do that by yourself:
1. the limb that you want to remove, may be in a place difficult of access,
2. a tree may be close to the power lines,
3. it is quite dangerous to work at height without any special training.
That’s why it is strongly recommended to entrust such works for professional arborists from tree trimming services. A professional is a “Certified” arborist - a person who is fully insured, licensed and certified by the State.
Trimming trees near the power lines follows strict rules, the safety of power lines functioning depends on professionalism of arborist. Tree trimming services use special industrial work platforms for carrying out such dangerous works.
Also, you can face the problem of choosing a season for trimming a tree; every species has its own peculiarities. Of course there are some general rules, such as weeping trees, for example, should be trimmed in spring, but only tree trimming service can tell exactly, when it is better to trim a particular tree.
Another problem is a proper shape of a crown. If you trim your tree unsuccess-fully, you can’t avoid thickening of its crown and that will bring even more trou-bles.
Fruiting may be violated if some limbs and branches are badly cut. It is important to know what limbs to trim and how many of them.
As a rule, the cost of these services are determined individually for each client: arborists take into account the configuration of the crown, trunk diameter, loca-tion, their proximity to buildings or power lines and many other factors.
Please note that tree trimming is an extremely dangerous activity, so entrust this work only to rope access and tree trimming services with certified arborists.
