While you can leave the trees in your garden to fend for themselves, that's not always the best course of action. Looking after them with selected lopping offers a range of advantages, as explained below.
More Stable Trees
Sometimes branches can grow unevenly enough to unbalance a tree and threaten its stability. In these situations, branches can be cut to balance the overall structure. A balanced tree will better withstand extreme weather events without splintering or splitting during gale-force winds.
A tree lopper can also remove diseased and unhealthy branches that attract rodents and insects to your property. Getting rid of unhealthy limbs will leave more nourishment for flowers and fruits to grow. It will stop the disease from spreading to other branches, worsening the tree's health.
Regular tree inspections and lopping will also ensure your property is safer. Overgrown branches may be in the way of electrical wiring. Cutting these back can create clean air and space between the foliage and wiring.
Additionally, diseased and dead branches can snap and cause injury to a family member or a household pet. Your car, house roof and the rest of your yard will be safer from damage with overgrown branches taken care of.
More Beautiful Garden
Tree loppers can also carve the canopy of a tree into a pleasing natural shape, making your garden look more appealing. The trees' appearance won't be marred by dead branches and patchy foliage. The extra healthy growth of foliage, flowers, and fruits will create a lush, abundant landscape. Plus, with branches cut off, the garden can also benefit from the extra light and air.
A More Appealing Kerb View
While an attractive garden can provide pleasure, it can also reap financial benefits. Graceful trees in your front yard will improve the kerb view. If you want to sell the property, a stunning first impression will attract more buyers. On the other hand, ungainly trees can detract from the overall landscape. An overgrown garden can give a home a neglected air and may put some buyers off your home.
You may wonder what happens to the branches that are cut. Depending on their health, they can be diced into mulch with a wood chipping machine. That way, you can get the added benefit of mulch to protect and nurture the garden beds and give them an attractive textured look, further enhancing the landscape.
