When it’s time to start pruning, make sure you know what the desired outcome is. If your trees and shrubs are important to you, like most Portland residents, then it’s important to know that the person behind that saw knows more than how to cut and clip. They need to know why they should cut and clip and what effect that will have for years to come.
A certified arborist has the experience necessary to understand plant physiology and anatomy, as well as the way in which certain plants respond to pruning. Improper pruning can lead to disease, insect damage, decay, loss of aesthetics, and structural weakness, predisposing plants to failure. Rich’s Tree Service understands the individual needs of your trees and shrubs and has a staff of Certified Arborists dedicated to the proper care of your valuable landscape.
Trees and grass do not always get along. Most Portland homeowners will ask tree service companies to come out and thin their trees to allow more light to access their lawn. However, instead of thinning, raising the canopy is more beneficial for allowing more sunlight to penetrate the grass. Even if the tree is thinned, the light that filters through it will be mostly stripped of the spectrums the lawn needs, whereas raising the canopy allows the full spectrum of light to come through. We know this because we are involved in more than just tree cutting; we are invested in the science of tree care.
When your trees are properly and regularly cared for it increases their overall health, reduces the potential for failure, brings them to their full aesthetic value, and increases your property value. That’s why it’s so important to go with a tree service company such as Rich’s Tree Service when selecting a tree care service provider. If you are considering pruning your trees contact Rich’s Tree Service to have one of our Certified Arborists assist you.
