We Cut Trees

We cut trees for two primary reasons: to beautify our landscaping and to improve the health of the soil in which we grow our gardens and plants. Landscaping is a wonderful way to add visual appeal and beauty to your property and garden. Unfortunately, cutting down trees can cause serious problems in the form of leaks, soil erosion, structural damage, and more. This is why we cut trees so that we can plant new trees to solve these issues. So what exactly happens when we cut trees?

Tree felling and tree removal are simply the terms used to describe the process of removing a tree from your landscape or removing it from a part of your property for one reason or another. When we talk about tree felling, this simply refers to cutting down a tree. When we talk about tree removal, we mean removing the tree completely from a particular location on your property. Both procedures should be done by trained specialists who have experience in tree planting. This will ensure that the trees you are removing will not have a detrimental impact on the environment or other nearby areas.

So what should you do when trees are removed or chipped down? One option is to simply mulch around the affected area. Mulch has the added benefit of providing additional nutrients, air circulation, and moisture to help the ground recover after a tree has been removed. It is also beneficial to leave mulch in place for the following year. In addition, leaving mulch in place will prevent the need for additional invasive species once the soil has started to settle and/or become over saturated with water.

Another solution when we cut trees on private or public property is to replace the trees using larger trees or native plants. For example, if you have a tree that is approximately five feet tall and starts to droop, it may be time to replace it with a large oak tree. If the tree was cut down to the point that it was no longer providing any shade or shape to the surrounding landscape, a maple tree or a big birch could serve as an attractive replacement. If you have a beautiful tree that is now bald, there are many beautiful options to choose from, such as bamboo, ivy, scrub and other foliage plants and trees.

Even if you currently do not have trees on your property, tree planting can still be beneficial. We've all seen projects where homeowners planted trees in front of their home only to find a few years later that those trees are in need of repair due to the growth of weeds. By replacing the trees with flowers or shrubs, or even a new type of tree, you can begin to provide a natural habitat for birds and wildlife once the weeds are gone. If you have a tree in a certain location but have it removed, consider planting a smaller tree in its place.

As we continue to cut trees, we may cause damage to power lines, which can cause long-term damage and even kill people. To prevent this possibility, we need to take a holistic approach to tree removal and tree maintenance. There are many options when it comes to tree planting, and by carefully considering the location, species, climate and power lines that surround your home and property, you can help ensure that your trees grow to provide a healthy habitat for wildlife while keeping your property free of damage.
