There are many reasons why you should prune your trees regularly including; safety, aesthetics, health, visual access, and financial reasons.

Safety: Pruning your trees can help ensure the safety of your property and the people around it. Proper and regularly pruning throughout a tree’s lifespan creates & maintains a strong tree structure, preventing safety hazards such as low growing and dead branches.

Aesthetics: Pruning brings out the natural beauty of your trees and landscape. Proper pruning will promote new growth, more vibrant colors, and keep your tree looking neat and tidy.

Health: Pruning your trees will eliminate dead and diseased branches. By removing these branches you help stop the spread of disease and insects within the rest of your tree, as well as reduce the unnecessary weight carried by the tree.

Visual Access: Pruning your tree can increase you property’s value and enhance its beauty by opening up your landscape, allowing more sunlight into your yard and improving your view.

Increase Property Values & Lower Energy Costs: Properties with well-maintained mature trees increases property values by 10% on average. Additionally properly pruned shade trees can reduce energy costs by up to 30% by blocking the summer sun while letting the winter sun shine through.

    When you mentioned that tree pruning can help increase the sunlight levels of a yard, I remembered the last visit I made to my uncle’s house. I was surprised to see just how tall the tree in his yard had gotten, so much so that I could barely even feel any sunlight reach his house at all with how large and looming the tree was. Along with the fact that those branches might fall on someone if he’s not careful, I think getting a tree pruning service to help him get a little more sunlight would be a great idea.
