Tree Service Techniques

A tree service technician is a person who is specifically trained in identifying pests and diseases and taking care of diseased or unhealthy trees. Using sophisticated tree-trimming and climbing techniques, he may cut away excessive or dead branches from trees to improve the look, condition and value of the property, or to clear sidewalks, roads or other utilities of debris. As the owner of a tree service company you can be rest assured that your trees are healthy and growing at an appropriate rate. When they are diseased or dead, however, it is imperative that you make sure that treatment methods are implemented and followed as promptly as possible, or the problem could worsen and possibly cost you more in the long run, as unhealthy branches or trees may grow out of control and pose a hazard to passersby, buildings and homes.

There are many reasons why your trees could become unhealthy, including disease, pests and tree attacks, which can all potentially cost you money and affect your pruning and trimming techniques. While a tree service technician’s main focus is to restore and protect your trees, there are times when you may have trees that are simply in need of trimming and shaping, especially if you live in an area with a lot of tree activity. While tree services technicians can help in most cases, you may still have some tree issues on your hands, such as trees that have become infected or need cutting branches for repair or rehabilitation, and there are some techniques that are specific to these issues. Here are some of the best practices for dealing with unsightly and unhealthy branches:
If your trees have branches that are growing out of control, you should do a full tree structure evaluation and trimming to ensure the best outcome. A tree structure evaluation will determine which branches are growing where, what their direction and directionality are (which are also known as direction of growth), and which ones are causing structural damage to the tree as a whole. Trimming should be done first, followed by removal and repair. This will ensure that you do not have any broken or cracked branches in the future, which can cause more problems and costs. The reason why trimming should be done first is that branches grow sideways and downward, which can cut into the roots. You should also consider the amount of damage that is being caused by the branches and decide whether or not they are a candidate for removal or repair.
