When pruning your smaller hardwoods and such, it's a good idea to remove any of the branches that turn back into the center of the tree.  You want them to grow out and to the sides, not back in toward the main trunk.  Also if there are some that are rubbing together, it's a good idea to get rid of the worse of the two.

As summer finally gets here, we are doing yard work again.  When putting mulch around the base of your tree, don't mound it up like a volcano.  This can cause issues with the bark at the base of the tree, resulting in problems.  Instead, make a small, shallow, bowl like feature around the base of the tree to keep any water right there above the majority of the roots.

With the onset of hurricane force winds, keep in mind of loose limbs and branches overhead that may have not been noticed.  Stay away from large trees that may have these "widow maker" branches above during high winds.  After the storms have subsided, if there are widow makers lodged high up in the tree, give us a call to safely remove them.

Mechanical Injuries/Wounds

The use of lawnmowers and line trimmers around the base of trees can do a lot of damage to the bark and cambium layers down close to the ground or grass.  These injuries inturn can be the start of disease and insect infestation.  To help prevent this, remove the sod from around the base of the tree and replace it with mulch.  Then you won't have to mow the grass so close to the tree.
