True or false?
I am so concerned with keeping my lawn healthy I end up neglecting my trees and shrubs.
We don’t typically start our blog post with a quiz question but our goal is to keep your trees and shrubs healthy and insect free.
When it comes down to it, most of us neglect our trees and shrubs. Maybe it’s because we think trees are one of nature’s, more hearty creations and that they don’t need much care. The truth to keeping your trees healthy, strong and safe is to regularly prune them.
Why You Need to Prune Your Trees
Pruning can prevent damaged, diseased or broken limbs from falling onto your house or worse anyone beneath it. Since Lubbock, TX can have some severe weather and high winds, weak limbs pose a real threat to people and property. Even without the safety concerns, pruning dead, damaged or diseased limbs will greatly improve the overall look and health of your trees.
One fact often overlooked when considering the health of your trees is the that the canopy of a tree benefits greatly from increased airflow. If your trees are overgrown and crowded, the decrease in airflow could provide a breeding ground for tree-damaging disease and pests.
Once your trees have been pruned, the best way to maintain your tree’s health is with our fertilization service. Our special blend of synthetic and organic fertilizers promote health while preventing pest infestation.
