tree-care-ridgefield-waIt’s one of the things that makes the Pacific Northwest so desirable: lush green canopies in the Spring and Summer give us needed shade on those sunny days. In the Winter, evergreens give us a needed pop of color during those dreary days. Not to mention all of the clean air we receive.

For the most part, after the trees are established, they’re pretty easy to care for. Make sure they get plenty of water when they’re first planted and then you can enjoy them for decades. There are times, however, when your trees will need a little bit of maintenance to keep their health.

Tree Care Ridgefield WA

One of the best ways to keep a tree healthy is to remove diseased or damaged branches as soon as you see them. If you’re unsure about the health of your tree, call Inexpensive Tree Care for a free estimate. We are led by an experienced certified arborist and we’ll take a holistic view of your tree and surrounding areas before making recommendations.

Damaged trunks or branches can actually affect the way your tree grows, making them work harder or adding stress to the overall health of the tree. After a thorough investigation of the tree (type of tree, age, growth rate, location, etc.), we make decisions based on our findings. We won’t make a single cut unless it helps the health of the tree.

Pruning does a great job of keeping a tree healthy, even if there are no signs of damage. This can help shape the tree, control its size, and even help improve your view if that’s a concern. By pruning a diseased branch or two, the tree no longer has to work on fighting that disease and can begin to thrive again.

In some cases, it’s a good idea to prune trees even when the health of the tree isn’t in question. Growing too close to power lines, overhanging your roof (which can encourage moss growth), or encroaching into the neighbor’s yard may be causes for pruning. Making the right cuts is important for the health of the tree.

Tree Trimming Ridgefield WA

The best way to maintain your trees, bushes, and other foliage is by regularly scheduled trimming. This can help with the overall health of the tree by removing dead or failing branches, but also help shape the growth and limit size. In most cases, these cuts aren’t as drastic as pruning but are just as helpful for their growth.

As another tree service we offer, Trimming can also keep trees or bushes from interfering with one another. Too much overcrowding can limit the growth of these trees and cause competition for resources. That’s why thoughtful planting is one of the best ways to ensure the good health of trees and other greenery.

Ridgefield WA Tree Removal

Unfortunately, we aren’t always able to save the tree. Either through disease, storm damage, or maybe the root system has been disturbed during nearby construction. In these cases, our experts will devise a plan to take the tree down quickly and safely.

The root system may be interfering with your home’s foundation, plumbing, or other infrastructure as well. If the tree can’t be moved, or it just doesn’t make sense to move it, we will remove those as well. Whatever the reason, it’s important to think about using an expert like Inexpensive tree care.
