Trees make the environment beautiful. How are the humans and animals live on earth if someone does not take it upon themselves to take care of the trees. Trees are infected by diseases that you should learn more about, and they need treatment. You can always take excellent care of your trees but only when you have the relevant knowledge. Trim your tree when you find out these signs on it.
A broken tree branch that exposes the inside part of your tree shows that there is much damage on the tree and this branch needs to be cut off. Ensure that you always check your trees after a storm and cut off all the broken branches that leave the inside of the tree bare.
The truth is that when the tree is too thick to see through it, then it is a warning sign that calls for trimming. Check the branch density of your tree and ensure that is thick but not too thick to see through.
Ensure that the tree does not overgrow outwards but let it grow upwards. The excessive outwards growth can be mitigated by pruning the branches that are growing outwards in excess to reduce the weight.
Whenever you find out cracks on the bark of the tree that are too many and go deep inside do not ignore this sign. Your tree will wither and die if the areas affected by the crack are not cut because it shows that the tree is rotting and the rot will spread.
A tree is like an animal or a human being; therefore, you should not expect it to have excessive deadwood. If you do not remove the deadwood from the tree, it will eventually die because the decaying will continue to affect other parts.
No matter how attractive your tree appears with those branches that are wandering in the air, it still calls for pruning. Your tree is perfectly healthy with the wild and wandering branches but have you ever thought that they may end up tangling with the electric wire passing near your or someone’s’ home?
Crossing branches shows how much you have forgotten about attending to your trees properly. As the branches cross, the bark is damaged because the branches come into contact and rub against each other especially in a storm or wind.
A misshapen tree needs trimming on a regular basis until it get the right shape. A tree with weight that is not proportionately distributed risks the heavy branches from losing balance and falling which can hurt someone or damage property.
