Why Is Tree Maintenance So Important?

Keeping Your Trees in Good Health 

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or grounds with some beautiful trees, then you know what a great impact they can have – attracting wildlife, providing a focal point in your garden and even bearing fruit! 

But to get the best out of your trees, you should keep them well maintained. Tree maintenance helps keep your tree in the best health and prevents it becoming unmanageable or dangerous. Tree maintenance can keep it at a certain height to allow light to flow into your garden, slim it down to prevent it overtaking your garden boundary and causing nuisance to neighbours or breaching onto your home and causing damage. 

Garden and tree maintenance can be performed by Essex Tree Brothers and we can provide tree surgeons in Maldon, Chelmsford, Colchester, Witham and the rest of Essex. We can provide a number of services to keep your tree in good health.  

To keep your tree manageable without damaging or killing the tree, it is always recommended to hire an expert who can perform reduction-pruning. This consists of reducing the height of the tree by cutting it back to the lateral branch. This method ensures that you can reduce the height and width of a tree without damaging it or exposing the trunk and making it weaker. 

The reason it is recommended to hire a professional tree surgeon for tree maintenance is because it often requires working at height with heavy and dangerous machinery and without the proper knowledge, equipment and safety – you can be at risk of unpredictable dangers and causing long term damage to your tree, garden, house and health! 

Tree maintenance is an important aspect of tree care and to nurture a tree old or new, takes care and attention to detail as well as expert eye. Our tree surgeons in Maldon and throughout Essex have knowledge of spotting any signs of tree disease or risk factors and work hard to nurse it back to health but where needed can perform tree felling to prevent any tree diseases spreading to nearby trees – saving other trees in the long run.  

Should a tree need removing because it has become dangerous such as following a storm, age, disease or a road traffic accident, our tree surgeons can work to fell the tree carefully in a controlled way that prevents the risk of damage to the surrounding area. We can even remove the remaining tree stump using our stump grinder.
