To maintain high value on your property using trees, you need to invest in regular tree pruning. The tree maintenance practice helps re-shape trees that are out of shape, restores safety to homes by getting rid of branches that are threatening to fall, improves tree health by getting rid of diseased branches, and improves visibility on pathways by getting rid of low-lying limbs.
For over two decades now, our team of tree experts has been pruning trees in Louisville and the neighboring areas. A combination of years of experience, top-of-the-line tree pruning gear, and our attention to detail ensures that we are delivering the best results to all our clients.
Why Work with Louisville Tree Pruning Professionals
Tree pruning is not just complicated – the process also has a lot of risks. For example, trying to prune a tree that is next to your house without proper mechanisms for lowering the cut branches could leave you with thousands of dollars to pay in repair costs.
Going up a tree without the right safety gear and knowledge on how to deal with complicated situations puts you at the risk of falling. Falling from the top of a tree could leave you with significant injuries and if the height was significant, you could lose your life or end up in a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
Working with professionals helps you avoid home repair costs or spending money on hospital bills. Using their advanced tools, professionals can lower down the cut branches slowly without touching your house or utility lines.
Pruning a tree involves removing the right branches to restore the tree’s natural shape. If you have no tree pruning experience, you may end up damaging the tree irreparably – this could force you to spend money on the tree’s removal and replacement. With years of field experience, pruning a tree is easy for professionals – they will give the tree its natural shape while modifying it to complement your landscape.
Do It Yourself (DIY) Tree Pruning
Some property owners in Louisville have small trees standing on non-risky areas. Such trees can be pruned by a homeowner. When pruning a tree, however, you will need to keep some tips in mind, including:
- The best branches to remove are the ones forming a V-shaped angle with the tree trunk. Those forming a strong U-shaped angle should be allowed to stay on the tree.
- Do not remove branches with a diameter of more than 10 cm unless it is necessary. Those with a diameter of 5cm – 10cm need careful consideration. You can get rid of the branches with a diameter of below 5 cm.
- Old branches scar more than younger branches. Also, the older limbs are harder to manage. For this reason, put your focus on removing the young branches when pruning a tree.
- When pruning a tree, you have to know how to identify the branch ridge and collar. To remove a branch, cut in between the two parts without leaving a huge section of the limb on the tree trunk or cutting too close to the trunk.
- When you are done with tree pruning for one tree, sanitize your tools before moving to the next tree. This will help you avoid spreading health complications from one tree to the other. Rubbing alcohol, with a 70% concentration is an ideal sanitizer.
Preventative Tree Pruning
Although most Louisville tree owners invest in tree pruning to improve their property’s aesthetic appeal, it is not uncommon for them to work with us for preventative pruning. When handling preventative pruning, we put focus on getting rid of branches that might lead to accidents.
For example, if you have limbs that are extremely close to touching powerlines, we will saw them off to reduce the chances of electrocution. If you have broken limbs on top of a tree, we will bring them down to keep them from falling on your house or causing heavy injuries to those walking nearby.
