Trees are an important part of the landscapes around Nashville. The shade they provide is not only a welcome relief in the summer, but well placed trees can also provide considerable energy savings. Numerous studies have also shown that large, well-maintained trees increase home values. But, if you have large trees in your landscape it’s important to make sure those trees are healthy and safe.
Instead of taking on the sometimes difficult task of caring for large landscape trees themselves, many Nashville home and business owners find a local tree service to help them out. Fortunately, the tree services in Nashville provide a variety of tree care services to maintain the health of your landscape trees. When landscape trees have outlived their usefulness, or become dangerous, many of these same tree services offer tree removal or stump grinding services as well.
The warm, southern climate allows trees in Nashville to have a fairly long growing season. Unfortunately, insect and disease pests are also active for most of the year in Nashville. Landscape trees and shrubs in Nashville are continually attacked by a wide variety of insect pests or tree diseases from early spring through late fall. Some Nashville tree services offer tree spraying services to control these harmful insect pests and tree diseases. If your trees are struggling or are under extreme stress the tree service may be able to offer tree fertilizing to improve the health of your landscape tree.
Providing proper tree care efficiently requires specialized equipment. Aside from saws and tree climbing saddles, tree services use chip trucks and brush chippers to grind up tree branches and bucket trucks to safely and quickly remove trees. Tanker trucks with special sprayers are used for tree spraying and tree fertilizing. An all day or all-weekend project for a homeowner can often be finished by a tree service in a matter of hours just by having the right equipment.
Another benefit of finding a professional tree service is that they have the knowledge on when and how to properly care for your landscape trees and shrubs. Pruning some tree species that grow around Nashville at the wrong time of the year could increase the potential for insect or disease pests. Also, pruning flowering trees or shrubs at the wrong time of year could reduce future flower production. It only makes sense to find a local tree service that knows proper tree care techniques and can protect and keep your valuable trees and shrubs as healthy as possible.
