Large trees provide shade and look great around your home, but you need to take care of them to make sure they are not only beautiful, but safe to have as well. Pruning and trimming are two of the most important activities that you should perform and not only to preserve the health of your trees, but for preventing damage caused by falling tree limbs and branches. Here are a few signs that tell you trimming cannot be postponed much longer:
- Broken or limp branches – branches that have been partially torn by a storm or have partially broken because of their own weight need to be cut off as soon as you notice them, otherwise you risk dangerous situations if the damage branch falls;
- Cracks on the bark – deep cracks on the bark are usually caused by rot and are signs that the tree is very ill or dying, so you either need to trim it extensively or to cut it off completely;
- The presence of dead wood – if you see dead twigs, dead branches or larger parts that have dried out, you need to get rid of the damaged parts before they come off on their own.
