Below are some of the essential care tips to ensure your property’s trees grow strong and stay healthy.
Plan Before You Plant any Trees
Consider the total area and space your tree with need once it reaches maximum height and root depth. Avoid planting any trees too close together, or near a structure, so they’ll have plenty of room to grow. Certain areas of your land won’t be suitable for a tree to grow because of gas, water, electric, and sewer lines running underneath. Ask your local utility company if it is okay to plant a tree in a specific spot.

Pruning your property’s tree is essential to ensuring the longevity to their health, as well as sustaining safe conditions around your property as a whole. Maintaining a regular pruning schedule enables the trees on your property to grow stronger while simultaneously minimizing any risk of weak branches falling when you’d least expect. Excess leaves or other foliage can put an excessive amount of weight on an otherwise healthy branch, causing it to break off without any warning dangerously. Routine visits from a tree care expert from Harford Tree will ensure your trees are pruned to cater to their ideal health conditions.
