There are areas of your house and property that make a big impact on the overall look and the feel. Of course the house and the finish of it can be a major way to boost your curb appeal. Another large area of the house that makes a statement is the plants but more specifically the trees. The trees that are on your property are a focal point and need to be taken care of. Most species of trees are meant to take roots in your yard and last for many years. If you take care of them they can bring joy, beauty and shade to your home and your life. Sadly there are many trees that can be damaged and that can lead to needing to have them removed. Many of the things that commonly damage your tree can be prevented and stopped from occurring. The best way to do that is to have your trees inspected and cared for by a professional. Milam’s Tree Service outlines what could be causing damage to your trees.
Tree Root Problems
There are some people that think you can choose a tree and place it wherever you want. This is not always true and as the tree grows it can cause some trouble. The tree that you have planted is usually small and a sapling. The size that it is going to end up being is quite different than the way that it started. You have to take into account the needs of the tree that you choose. Some of them need a lot of space to grow and even more space to allow the roots to take hold. A problem that people have is the tree is not able to take root properly and that can cause damage to the tree itself. You want to make sure that if you have a tree that does not have the space for roots you have a professional inspect and potentially remove them.
Tree Insect Infestation
Another problem you may have that will cause some damage to the trees is when they are infested with pests. There are lots of pests that can be found in your area and they can even infest the tree. They can start to eat through the leaves, branches, roots and the main interior of the tree. You want to do what you can to prevent pests from infesting the tree first. If you have a pest infestation that has caused damage to the tree you may need to have it treated or removed.
Tree Storm Damage
The weather can bring on some storms that have the potential of damaging your tree. There can be heavy rains and wind that if your tree is not well established can cause damage. Many times at the end of the storm you will see branches that have been downed and main parts of the tree that could be damaged. You want to make sure you are aware of any damage after a storm and ensure that it is taken care of when the weather clears up.
