Tree Trimming for a Healthy Tree

Tree trimming service can help you keep your property and loved ones safe from fallen branches. After a few branches fell in Bryant Park (a local Manhattan park) last week, we are advising all homeowners to take a few minutes and read our guide to avoiding falling trees. Although nobody was hurt, fallen branches cause severe damage to innocent civilians and personal property every year.

How can you tell if a tree branch is about to fall?

There are many signs that a tree is not healthy or becoming very week. For instance, if a tree branch looks lifeless, with no leaves during its bloom season the branches are likely to break off soon. Tarzan Tree Removal Service usually looks at these four areas when inspecting the safety of a tree.

Tree Overall Appearance: From a distance take a look at your tree check to see if it is leaning in a certain direction, missing areas of leaves or large dead branches. 

Trunk: A trunk is the main support of a tree, holding up its weight and branches. Check to see if the trunk appears to have any type of fungus, dead bark, cracks or insects.

Roots: A tree is held up by its root system underground that serve as its is anchorage and support, as it provides all the water and nutrients. If a rot rots or decays a tree can fall at any given moment, which is a frightening factor in owning a tree. To check if the roots are healthy you are going to have to look at the surrounding ground area. Move away any leaves or ivy at the base and check to see if there is any fungal growth (e.g. fungal growth), cracked or raised soil where trunk meets the ground or insects at the base of the true.

Canopy (upper layer of tree): Dead wood on a tree is one of the key signs to checking its health – check is there are dead branches don’t have leaves or are missing bark.
