During a hurricane, it’s very easy for trees to be damaged or even lost due to extremely high, intense cyclonic winds. A hurricane’s strong winds and heavy rains can cause many problems for a tree, especially ones with poor branch structure, weak root system, and overgrown limbs.
In our area of Florida, it’s important to take the necessary steps to hurricane-proof your trees to minimize damage and help save your trees. Here is how to hurricane proof your trees and when it needs to be done in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and the surrounding areas.
Your trees’ roots aren’t just a means of transferring nutrients and food to the core of your tree; they are critical to the overall stability and strength of the tree. The root system is like an anchor for your trees, securely holding it down during high winds. Laying mulch around your tree roots helps preserve nutrients and water in the soil while protecting the roots from damage. Roots are susceptible to damage from mowing, foot traffic, and daily wear and tear of weather and other elements. You should keep a layer of mulch around the base of your trees year-round, and periodically replace the mulch with a fresh batch.
A strong, deep-rooted tree may not fall during a storm, but weak and overgrown canopy limbs are susceptible to damage and falling....
Reasons for removing a tree from your property are numerous, but what should be done with the stump that’s left behind after the tree is gone? Stumps can be completely removed or ground down, depending on the client’s preference.
If you live in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and nearby Florida areas, here are four reasons to consider having stumps removed from your property with stump grinding services.
When a stump is left behind, it takes a while for the leftover wood to rot and decompose. The rotting and decomposing process attracts bugs that you don’t want in your yard, such as ants, termites, beetles, and more. They will initially be attracted to the stump but will migrate to other areas of your yard and potentially your house. If they spread to your house, you could find yourself looking at a costly pest control bill, particularly if you end up having to get rid of a termite invasion.
Let’s face it: stumps aren’t pretty. They sit in your yard and take up valuable space, potentially also decreasing your curb appeal as they begin to rot. If it’s a large stump, it is covering space where you could install a new landscape bed or outdoor living space. Even a small stump can create issues, such as when your lawn is being mowed. It becomes...
Much like your lawn and landscape, trees require routine maintenance to keep them healthy and looking nice on your property. Regularly trimming trees ensures they are healthy, eliminates safety hazards, and increases the curb appeal and value of your home.
Here are some reasons why your trees in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and the surrounding areas need to be trimmed.
Keeping your trees trimmed is vital to their health and structural support. Proper trimming improves the health of your trees by eliminating branches that are dead or dying. These branches compete with healthier branches and steal necessary nutrition from the rest of your tree. Rather than feeding only the lively, healthy parts of your tree, nutrients such as fertilizer, water, food, and light are being split amongst the healthy and dead branches. Trimming these branches off your tree will increase the amount of nutrients and food your healthy branches get and cut down on waste.
Trimming also improves the overall structure and support of your trees, keeping it from developing broad or weak branches. Trimming your tree prevents limbs from growing weak crotches and crossing over each other and causing wounds in the bark. When branches grow out of hand and cross over each other, they compete for space and light in the crown. Trimming your trees will increase sun exposure and air circulation throughout the tree and underlying landscape,...
There are many reasons that trees may need to be removed from your property. They may simply need to be relocated or they could be dead or dying. Trees could be growing too close to power lines, buildings, or sheds. They could also have sustained storm damage.
Trees can fall victim to disease, insect infestation, and more. When these trees begin to die, they start to look unsightly and can also pose safety hazards.
Here are some reasons that trees may need to be removed from residential and commercial properties in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and nearby Florida locations.
When a tree is attacked by a disease, it can start to kill off part or all of the tree. This results in a dead or dying tree and the parts of the tree that die are weakened. These dead branches are prone to snap off and fall to the ground below, creating safety issues for those on your property.
A dead branch can easily fall on power lines, damage cars, or even hit someone who could be standing below the tree. Entirely dead trees pose even larger safety issues, particularly if they are located close to a home or business. Dead trees may fall onto the building and injure family, friends, or customers inside the structure.
For these reasons, it is best to be proactive and remove dead or dying trees before they hurt someone or damage a structure on your property.
