Landscaping doesn’t stop after your tree is planted. Trees need to be pruned and cared for on a regular basis, for both aesthetic and health reasons. A tree that isn’t cared for can actually damage your commercial property and be a significant liability. You may be tempted to save a quick buck by forgoing tree care altogether, but hiring properly trained and equipped professionals is the most cost-effective investment you can make.
Here’s why you need commercial tree care.
Unpruned tree branches can encroach on walkways and block both driveways and parking lot lines-of-sight. This can endanger drivers and pedestrians. The growth of tree roots can cause displacement or cracking on pavers, rocks, or bricks. Maintaining other forms of landscape is also beneficial to tree care. For instance, poorly defined hardscape edges can cause vehicles to hit hidden trees and run of roads, driveways, and parking areas.
It’s difficult to care for trees yourself if you’re unfamiliar with environmental conditions, plant growth cycles, and seasons. It’s important to water, prune, and mulch at times that take full advantage of these factors. Caring for trees from nature’s perspective means your maintenance will be effective, saving you time, money, and resources.
Tree care is inefficient if performed with incorrect tools. Tools need to be sharp and clean for proper pruning, plant safety, healing, and prevention of plant diseases. Dull blades damage plant shoots and branches. Hiring experts ensures the correct tools will be utilized.
