Tree maintenance is an important aspect of caring for your property. Ill or damaged trees can pose a serious risk. In fact, over 100 people are killed by falling trees and branches every year. Tree maintenance and tree removal can help to prevent injuries and fatalities on your property. Here are a few key tips you can use to maintain your trees.

Tree Trimming

Also known as tree pruning, there is a variety of pruning factors to keep in mind. These include the health of the tree, house and/or structure damage prevention, the health of underlying plants and/or turf, and homeowner preference. Giving your trees a good trim will help in the overall maintenance of your trees. When parts of the tree become dead or diseased, it’s important to cut them off to avoid the disease from spreading or becoming dead weight resulting in falling branches. However, you should never attempt to do this yourself at the risk of injury. Be sure to contact your local tree removal services at Freedom Tree Service for professional tree pruning.

Annual Tree Inspection

Much like a home inspection, tree inspections evaluate the overall health of your trees. Contact your local tree services to schedule a tree inspection if you’re concerned about your tree or if you haven’t had your trees inspected in over six months. A lot can happen to trees in your yard that can be hard to spot. Storm damage can be obvious or hidden. A tree that is showing signs of poor health can often be treated if the problem is caught at an early stage.


Like planting flowers in your garden, trees that grow in your yard are usually not naturally fertilized. One way to make sure your trees are getting the nutrients they need is by providing deep root fertilization. This ensures your trees get the right nutrients they need. Just be sure not to put too much fertilizer down. Too much fertilizer can cause excessive soil salts, which can do more harm than good to your tree.

Tree Removal

In the instance of a dead or dying tree, you may need to schedule an appointment with your local tree removal services at Freedom Tree Service to get your tree removed before it causes potential damage to your yard or harms anyone. Tree removal services will also clean up the site so there is no remaining debris or wood chunks. While emergencies happen, maintaining your trees is as important as maintaining your home with necessary repairs and maintenance.

Freedom Tree Service offers both tree maintenance and tree removal for your convenience and safety. While some aspects of tree maintenance can be done on your own, it is important to call a professional when you are unsure or have concerns. Contact us today to learn more.
