Your trees in your yard belong to you, and they are your responsibility. This doesn't mean you should be irresponsible by attempting to trim or remove them all on your own, especially when you are putting those around you or someone else's property at risk. If you have a tree in your yard that needs to be trimmed or removed, the responsible thing to do is to hire a professional to do this work for you.
Do you have a tree that has suddenly died and that needs to be taken out? Have you been making plans to get started on this work within the next week or two? While cutting down a tree has the potential to make you feel like an accomplished lumberjack, the reality is that this is almost certainly going to be something that is best left to professionals. Instead of going out and cutting down the tree yourself, take a moment to consider if it's really the best idea.
Winter is the best time to prune many landscape trees. Pruning done during winter dormancy puts minimal stress on trees. What little stress they do experience is quickly overcome by the burst of spring growth as the trees come out of dormancy. In mild climates, you can begin to prune as early as midwinter, while you may want to wait until later winter in areas with more severe freezes and snow events.
Are you worried about a tree that is growing on your property? Is it no longer as lush or as healthy-looking as it once was? For many people, the first stop when they have an issue with their tree is to head straight to their local lawn & garden center. This can be a great way to maintain a healthy tree, but you really should call in a professional to care for a tree that doesn't seem to be doing so well.
You want to take care of the many trees on your property, but you find it hard to manage each and every single one. Even worse, it seems that each type of tree needs its own type of care, which adds to the stress and confusion of keeping your lawn in beautiful condition. Tree trimming matters. But the good thing about this time-consuming task is that you can hire a professional to do the work for you.
