The emerald ash borer is an invasive species of beetle that is infesting ash trees throughout the country and eventually killing them. While these beetles and the larvae that they lay inside ash trees are incredibly destructive, they are not always easy to detect, especially for homeowners who may not know much about them. But, if you have any ash trees on your property, it is very important to learn the signs that indicate that the emerald ash borer is present.
When the average homeowner thinks about trimming, they are probably thinking about keeping the shrubs and bushes on their property looking neat and attractive. Although trimming these plants on a regular basis is important, you do not want to overlook trimming the branches of any trees in your yard as necessary. This article offers a number of good reasons for trimming your trees from time.
One of the most important reasons for trimming tree branches is to promote the health of a tree.
If you own a house but find the landscaping to be lacking, there are some simple things you can do to make the landscape more appealing. The typical suburban landscape is a green lawn, mowed, with a tree here or there, and maybe a shrub or two. Go from blah to beautiful with these simple landscaping updates.
1. Add lights.
Lights make your landscape much more sophisticated. Use lights along the pathway to your dor, around trees in the front yard, or along the edges of the shrub bed.
Do you have a tree on your property? How long has it been since you had the tree pruned professionally? If you're like many people, you may have answered the second question with "never," or perhaps you simply can't remember. But while you might not have given it much thought, it is actually a good idea to have your trees looked after by a professional on a regular basis. If not annually, then at least every other year.
Too many homeowners make the mistake of just letting the trees on their property grow wild and never give it a second thought until they are served with a citation from the town because the trim limbs are hanging on electrical wires or because the tree is starting to die and is, therefore, becoming a danger. Instead of allowing that to happen with your trees, you will want to take every opportunity to take great care of your trees.
