Trimming Your Trees in Phoenix

Trimming Your Trees in Phoenix

When it comes to trimming your trees in Phoenix, fighting the heat isn’t the only thing you need to worry about: trimming trees correctly requires knowledge, skill and experience. We recommend Tree Doctors Inc for all of your tree trimming needs in the Phoenix area.

Condition of the Tree

Trees that are sick or decayed can be tricky to remove, so finding a Phoenix tree removal professional is critical to keeping your family, pets and home safe. How can you decide if your tree needs to come down or if it just needs trimmingLook carefully at your tree for these signs. Are the leaves wilted or discolored? Are there any cracks in the truck or limbs? Are funguses or mushrooms growing near the trunk and along the roots at the base of the tree? Can you see ants or sawdust at the base of the tree indicating insect infestation? Is the tree lopsided from human damage? These are signs the tree is severely damaged and probably dying which process is irreversible. A Phoenix tree trimming company can try to save the tree and will if it is possible.

Trimming

Crown trimming is needed when the tree has too many limbs and leaves to allow the light into the tree. Not only does this cause decay it blocks wind so when the monsoons come, the rain-heavy tree blocks the wind and falls.Crown raising involves removing branches that are too low to the ground preventing people walking under or blocking the line of vision to your home.Crown reduction refers to the trimming of the tops of the trees. This is especially necessary so utility lines are free from potential damage.

Mulch

Besides trimming, the most important thing you can do to have healthy trees is to mulch. Use hardwood grinding, bark chips or pine straw, 2-4 inches deep under the drip line of your tree (wherever the sun would shine if there was no tree) but staying 5 inches away from the trunk. Mulch will keep moisture in the ground, condition the soil and protect the tree’s roots from damage.

You Get What You Give

If you want to have healthy trees you are going to have to give them the attention they need. It is difficult to maintain plants in the Valley of the Sun, so you will have to be ready to either put the work in to your trees or pay for professionals to do so.

New Years Resolution: Get Organized

Another year is in the books and it’s that time again. You know… that time when you start making resolutions for the New Year. Yep, it’s that time again. If you’re like me and continually don’t live up to resolutions this is not a good time. However, hopefully this time it will be a lot different. I really mean that. That is why I’m passing along something I received recently.

My good friend Jennifer Furrier is organizing a seminar in January on being organized. Sometimes the only thing standing in the way between resolutions and results is a plan. It looks like Jennifer’s seminar could go a long ways towards helping develop a solid plan. In this seminar she says she “will provide simple and effective solutions to become better organized and more efficient with time management.”

Here is a little introduction she sent me about the upcoming seminar:

Do you plan on working another 365 days of your life? What’s that you say? Oh, more than that! Then WHY continue putting up with the stress and angst that comes with disorganization? How about working those upcoming years being more organized, efficient, productive and effective than ever before? These days, maximizing the way you spend your time is more important than ever! Take your business to the next level by attending a one-of-a-kind, info-packed seminar that guarantees you’ll walk away with tools you can immediately implement to start 2009 off on the right foot.

She’s offering a $30 discount if you register before January 1st. Otherwise its $79 for this one day event. Download the PDF for details and registration information. Her website is EssentialOrganizing.Com if you’d like to learn more about her company.
