How To Keep Your Trees Healthy in the tough Brisbane climate
There are a number of important strategies to keep your trees healthy. Regular health assessments from a qualified Arborist help to detect early warning signs of deterioration and keep your trees structurally sound. In addition to these health checks, you should have your trees pruned and shaped regularly. This has many benefits. It reduces the amount of green waste on your property. Reduces the chances of your branches becoming overweight. Limits the chances of an infestation of rodents or disease. It also reduces the impact of strong winds and storms on your large trees. Keeping your trees trimmed and shaped can preserve their health and add value to your property.
The Dangers of Neglected Trees in Brisbane
On the flipside, neglecting your trees can lead to a long list of problems – from the ugly to the dangerous. Trees left without tree lopping and assessment or maintenance can quickly become an eyesore. As their leaves become overgrown, they can block essential sunlight to the plants below, obstruct precious vistas and cause a nightmare for residents left to pick up their droppings.
In addition to these smaller issues, a tree left to overgrow can have their structural integrity compromised. As the leaves build up on the larger branches, the extra weight can put strain on the junction with the trunk, and also act as a sail to the wind. As your trees become imbalanced from their foliage and blown around by the wind, they become a serious health risk to you, nearby residents, passing pedestrians and even wildlife and require serious consideration whether they should be left or lopped.
