How A Tree Trimming Company Might Deal With An Overgrown And Bushy Tree In Your Front Yard

If you have a tree in your front yard that blocks the view of your home from the street or makes too much shade, talk to a tree trimming company about removing lower branches or thinning the tree. Mature trees are pretty and valuable, but they can cause problems when they make too much shade or create security issues.

Here's how a tree trimming service can help. 

Elevate The Tree

The tree service doesn't really raise or elevate the tree, they just make it look that way by removing lower branches. They may raise the tree so its lowest branches are taller than your house. You'll still get some shade, and you'll still have your beautiful tree, but the tree will no longer block the view of your house from the street.

This makes it harder for vandals to hide in your yard and it allows you to see your entire property as you pull into your driveway so home security is increased. Plus, low branches won't be in your way any longer and you won't have to worry about someone walking into a branch and getting scratched.

Thin The Tree

If the tree has thick growth and makes dense shade, you might want the tree trimming company to thin the canopy. This involves removing some of the branches in the canopy in an evenly distributed way. By doing this, more sunlight can filter down to the ground. By thinning and removing some lower branches, you'll improve security and increase sunlight.

If your property has problems with algae growing on the driveway or on your home's siding, letting more sunlight through could help reduce the algae growth. Plus, additional sunlight can help plants and flowers grow stronger. Sun is also important for the health of the tree, so thinning the canopy could make the tree healthier.

Cut Back Excess Growth

If you like the shape of your tree but just want it to look tidier and not block your view as much, the tree trimming company may only need to trim back some lower branches without removing the branches completely. The tree service can advise you on the best way to deal with your tree based on the type of tree you have and how it has overgrown.

The important thing is to not affect the health of the tree by trimming it. Cuts should be clean and made with sanitary equipment. Plus, the tree trimmer has to be careful not to remove too many branches at once and put stress on the tree.
