Trees can add both beauty and value to a property, but they can also pose a threat if not properly maintained. If you have trees on your Las Vegas property it is crucial that you maintain them correctly so that they can live a long life without endangering your home or family. Routine tree maintenance and care will improve the appearance and health of the tree, along with improving the condition of surrounding landscaping and preventing damage from dead or decaying branches.

An unmaintained tree in poor condition is sometimes best to remove in order to avoid putting people and the property at risk. However, tree removal can be dangerous if not performed with sufficient knowledge about how to do it properly and safely. Tree removal can be done on your own, but is best done by experienced professionals.

Ways To Maintain Trees

Though there are many ways to maintain trees, two of the most common techniques used include pruning and mulching.

Pruning involves cutting down branches and other sections of the tree and is primarily done to remove any dead or disease-infected parts. If you neglect to prune infected branches, you increase the possibility of disease spreading to other sections of the tree, which can often cause irreparable damage.

Mulching aims at supporting the roots by offering it a cooler environment and making it stronger. To make it more effective, mulch is placed at least 3 inches below the ground level so that the roots of the tree are completely enveloped. Mulch also keeps away weeds from the roots.

Nevada Tree Services offers Tree Maintenance services that will provide regular care for any tree on your property improving curb appeal and ensuring safety.

Ways To Remove Trees

Tree RemovalAn easy way to remove a tree is to fell it. For this, you need to look at whether there is sufficient free area available so that the tree can fall without damaging anything. Then check the lean of the tree and cut it in a way that it will fall in the free area. If there is not enough free area around, you will need to cut the tree in sections.

To remove the stumps manually, you can use using a chainsaw, a shovel and other such equipment. Another option is to use chemicals like potassium nitrate to soften and destroy it completely. You can also choose to burn down the stump by drilling a hole through its center.

Tree removal is best done by experienced professionals, especially if the tree is too big or overgrown to remove on your own. With specialized knowledge and techniques, Nevada Tree Service is able to safely remove any tree on your property.

The decision to cut a tree can be difficult, but often necessary. A diseased tree or tree in very poor condition can put property and people at risk. Sometimes, even a healthy tree needs to be cut in order to improve landscaping or to encourage new growth. If you have a tree on your property that should be cut down, you must keep a few things in mind to ensure your safety and avoid damages.Without taking proper precautions cutting a tree on your own can turn out to be disastrous.

Keep People Away

Cutting a tree can be dangerous. Mistakes while cutting or the tree changing direction during the fall can cause damage or injury. Ask people to stay away at a safe distance. You should also plan an escape path for yourself that will allow you to quickly get away as the tree is falling.

Determine The Fall

Examine the premises and have a clear idea of where the tree will fall if you cut it from a particular angle and direction. Ideally, the tree should be cut in the direction it naturally leans in and fall into an open area, but unfortunately a tree will not always fall the direction you intend for nor is there a guarantee of empty ground in the surrounding areas.If empty ground is not available, do your best to clear the area and remove loose branches.

Tree CuttingCutting Techniques

Influencing the fall of a tree is dependent on the directional notch made. Notch techniques vary and should be researched properly to ensure the ideal technique for the tree and area. Choosing the best tool, whether a chainsaw or axe, can also influence the way a tree is cut.

Look Out For Branches

Check to see if falling branches from the tree will impact anything directly. Often this step is forgotten, resulting in branches that fall on electric wires and or on structures. If you think there is even the slightest chance that branches will cause damage as the tree falls, be sure to first cut those branches before you start cutting the tree trunk.

Cutting a tree can be dangerous and unpredictable, making it highly recommended to hire professional tree cutting services.
