Regular Inspections Will Help You Plan for Future Tree Care

The trees on your commercial property may be part of the property line, or they may be close enough to your building to provide shade for your parking lot. Keeping them healthy will take regular monitoring, trimming, and pruning. Setting up an inspection schedule may be the simplest way to keep your trees healthy.

Promote a Healthy Canopy

Ornamental trees are popular on many commercial properties. While ornamental trees can be incredibly pretty when in bloom over the spring or summer, some of these shorter trees can actually become extremely dense if allowed to grow without a pruning plan.

Proper pruning will remove crowded branches and allow air to pass through the canopy of the tree. Even better, this pruning process will reduce the risk of pathogens such as bacteria and fungi that thrive in wet conditions. A tree with an open canopy will survive strong winds and heavy rain.

Benefits of Seasonal Monitoring

Your trees will need to be checked when they’re fully leafed out so your arborist can watch for signs of insect damage or disease. Many threats are visible on the existing leaves early in the progression of a disease. Act at the first sign of infection, especially if several of the trees on your property are of the same species.

Diseased branches can be quickly removed and destroyed. The tree can be treated, as necessary, to allow it to thrive in future seasons. Talk with your arborist about a summer checkup and a regular pruning plan after the leaves drop.

Reduce the Risk to Those Under the Trees

Regular tree monitoring and pruning can also help you stay on top of pests or risky insects. We all hope to support bees, but you may have a tree that is diseased or old enough to be serving as a host to a hive. Bees can be deadly to a client or an employee with an allergy. A skilled arborist can help you get a hive moved by a professional.

Other stinging insects, such as wasps and hornets, can actually get pretty territorial. Your arborist may be the first person to notice these pests, and this information can save you a lot of trouble in the future.

Once you have a tree that is hollow enough for stinging insects, there’s a pretty good chance that other pests may also move in. Wildlife, from tiny rodents to raccoons, can cause a lot of havoc if they have a home in the trees on your property.
