Port Orchard & Gig Harbor Tree Maintenance
Did you know the tops of your trees can act as a wind trap? It happens quite often and the result may be a tree falling on your house or car, which can lead to extensive damage.
You can decrease your chances of a tree falling or large branch breaking during one of our famous NW storms if you contact Northwest Tree Service for preventative tree maintenance.
What’s tree maintenance?
Also called preventative maintenance, preventative pruning or structural pruning, it covers a range of tree thinning services such as crown cleaning or crown reduction and may include one or all of the following:
Removal of small branches to allow wind to pass through and sunlight to reach all branches
Trimming or removing weak, dead or decayed branches
Trimming to decrease surface area of lateral branches to lessen wind resistance
All the items above reduce the likelihood of branches breaking or a tree toppling in a storm or high wind situation. Trees are wondrous and built to adjust to most things but sometimes Mother Nature delivers a whopper they just can’t compensate for and that’s when damage occurs.
That’s where preventative pruning comes in as it’s not only good for the trees, it also gives you peace of mind. You’ll feel better knowing you did what you could to keep your family safe while reducing potential damage to your home and property. Can you see that spending a little money now on your trees can save you a lot later on?
Do my trees pose a hazard?
Many people think there’s a connection between the size of a tree and the hazard it poses but it’s the health of the tree that factors into whether or not it may be a potential hazard.
So, like humans, trees need ongoing care to keep them healthy as a healthy tree is a strong tree. That means the right watering, mulching, fertilizing and pruning for its entire life.
