Getting Ready for Spring: Tree Trimming and Stump Removal for a Great Looking Yard

As spring approaches, it's time to take a look at the trees and shrubs in your yard. When you love being outside, and you want a lush landscape, it's important to make sure the plantings on your property are healthy. In addition, if there are areas where a tree was once removed and now the stump is just sitting there rotting, it could be time to have the stump removed. Over the winter, it's possible that your trees have suffered some damage from the weather and need to be trimmed for the health of the whole tree. As you get ready for spring, having a tree trimming service assess the trees on your property can help make your yard beautiful and healthy.

Ensure the Health of Your Trees

Over the winter, some of your smaller trees may have suffered damage from the harsh winter conditions. If you have broken tree branches, a tree service will be able to take care of the branches so that they are no longer a hazard to people in your yard. A tree service will also look at any diseased leaves and be able to tell you if any treatment is necessary to keep the tree healthy.

Remove Unsightly Stumps

If you just moved to a property with a few ugly tree stumps, or you just never got around to the task, you may notice that the tree stumps in your yard are rotting. They may attract pests, as rotting wood is often full of all kinds of insects. If the stump is close to your home, you may begin to have problems with infestation in your home as well. Tree stumps that are rotting don't belong in a lush, beautiful yard and it's time to invest in having the stumps removed.

As you clean up your yard, take a good look at all of your plantings. If your perennials are just starting to come up from the ground, make sure to remove the sticks and leaves that have piled up over the winter to give them room to grow. Look for signs that your plants are struggling, such as wilted leaves, or discoloration. Even your grass will show signs up infestation, dying off in spots if there are grubs below the surface eating the roots. Pay attention to what you see, and talk with a landscaping company to figure out what you can do to keep your yard great.
