It’s important to recognize that neglected or improperly maintained trees can be hazardous to property and people—not to mention they can be quite costly to replace. And different varieties require different lighting, climate conditions, soil nutrients, and pruning methods. All trees, bushes, hedges, and shrubs should be pruned annually as a regular part of your commercial landscape maintenance plan. Pruning is essential to the health of your trees, and if you don’t do it properly, or put it off until it becomes critical or out of season, you could be causing undue damage that can shorten the lives of your largest living investments.

You also need to be aware that certain ornamental trees and shrubs require consistent pruning to properly shape them so they’ll fit within their surroundings, from both an aesthetic and spatial standpoint. So, when is the best time for pruning? Autumn is the prime pruning season, because once the leaves have all fallen, it’s easier to see which limbs need to be trimmed or removed. It’s also an appropriate time for pruning, because trees heal themselves while they’re dormant so they’ll be ready for new growth come springtime.

Choose the Right Trees to Fit Your Circumstances

Choosing the right trees, bushes, and shrubbery for your commercial grounds requires thought and planning, as well as a strong understanding of what will work with your planting conditions. Since trees can live for 100 years or more, their permanency on the lawn is a huge consideration when selecting which species will fit best with your needs and circumstances. Our tree experts will help you decide where trees are needed on your commercial grounds, and together, we’ll determine what function they should have in the landscape. Then it will be a lot easier to identify which trees will best fulfill your requirements. Don’t make the mistake of deciding what kind of trees you’d like to have first, and then try to make them fit within your landscape. It’s a risky proposition that seldom has a favorable outcome.

You also want to be mindful that you don’t plant trees, shrubs, or bushes that are known for hosting destructive pests, insects, or disease, or that will be susceptible to storm damage. Another thing you want to be wary of are trees that produce a lot of messy seeds or fruits that will necessitate excess time spent removing debris from the landscape. Regardless of which trees you decide to plant, they all share some qualities that are wonderful by any standard. Trees clean our air, enhance the scenery, and while well-established trees don’t require a major amount of upkeep and attention, they certainly do increase property values.
