3 Reasons Why Residential Tree Services Are Important All Year Long

Published On: November 30th, 20213.1 min read

Do you need residential tree services during winter months? Sorry, that was a trick question. The answer is, “Of course you do!”

That’s because arborist services in Connecticut are essential all year round. Read on to explore 3 important reasons why.

First, the health of your trees depends on proper pruning and other professional tree services.  Pruning in the winter months is often the best choice to keep your trees disease-free. Secondly, unkept trees on your property can be very problematic or even dangerous.  There is not time to waste if a tree is threatening your home. And, of course, unhealthy, poorly-groomed trees may detract from the aesthetic value of your landscape.

Besides these basic points, there’s more to be said about the year-round benefits of arborist services. Not to mention you may even come across some great WINTER DISCOUNTS!!

1. Tree Health

Pruning a tree selectively removes unwanted limbs, resulting in improved air circulation in the canopy, increased vigor, and new growth. Pruning also removes overgrowth that can make a tree unbalanced and structurally unsound.

For many reasons winter is one of the best times of the year to complete this task. Most importantly, pruning cuts, which are essentially wounds, will have time to heal before harmful insects, fungi, and bacteria emerge from their dormancy.  Pruning at the very end of winter is also a great practice because the cuts give the tree a signal that it is time to produce a flush of new growth right as Spring hits.

2. Safety

There are so many ways in which a poorly-maintained tree can harm you, your household, and your guests. The most well-known example is when heavy branches or entire trees come crashing down. This happens for two reasons: lack of maintenance and instabilities in tree structures caused by old age.  If you are concerned about a tree threatening your home or safety there is no time to waste.  Seek the help of a professional tree service in order to protect your assets.

Unhealthy Trees

Often, a tree is weak due to disease, termites, insufficient moisture, or some other health problem. As described above, such health problems are treated and prevented by proper, year-round maintenance.

Dead/Dying Trees

Sometimes, though, a tree cannot be saved despite these efforts. For this, you’ll need to hire a residential tree service company.  Winter is a great time to take care of tree removals.  The ground is frozen so there is less of a chance for disturbance to gardens and lawns when equipment is used to access the trees.  There are also many more opportunities for WINTER DEALS as it tends to be a slower time of year for most arborists.

Other Tree Hazards

Other dangers include branches with low clearance. These can scrape against car roofs, restrict walkways, and potentially become a hazard for people not paying attention. Also, overgrown roots can uproot your deck or damage your plumbing and irrigation systems.

3. Tree Appearance

Like your hair, your trees look good when they’re kept trimmed and well-groomed.  When there are no leaves on trees arborists are better able to assess the structure of a tree and see what cuts will improve the shape of a tree when they leaf out in the Spring.

Have an arborist check your trees each season to keep them looking great. This improves your curb appeal, which raises your property value.

I needed to have a large Norway maple tree removed and wanted to get at least three estimates. Eric's tree service came out and gave me a somewhat reasonable quote of $3500, then a week later before I had gotten another estimate from a different company Eric's tree service texted me and said they'd be in the area the following week, I called them and they said they had to revisit the estimate. They came back out continued to tell me her personal problems and that my neighbor would have to move his trailer. She then sent me a new quote of $7231!!! I called Arbortech and Justin came over on the day scheduled and was my most reasonable quote! He also said my neighbor wouldn't need to move his trailer. Justin and his crew arrived on time and did a phenomenal job!! They are true professionals! They cleaned up everything. They had had to remove a fence panel and when they put it back it was more secure than it had been when it had been originally installed. Justin's quote was $4700 less than Eric's! This experience with Arbortech was purely positive I highly recommend this company! Thank you Justin, Lindsey and the rest of the crew, you guys rock!!

The service I received from everyone at Arbortech for a tree removal was absolutely wonderful. Any questions and concerns I had were answered and reassured. Justin and Lindsey were both so helpful and the value I paid for this service was outstanding. Super reasonable, and I would recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of any tree service. Super grateful and happy. If I could figure out how to add pictures to my review, I would. They did an incredible job with not just the tree removal itself, but also with a brush pile I also had taken care of. Again, highly recommend Arbortech for anyone who is in need of any type of tree service. Couldn’t be more pleased!

We spoke with Lindsey via phone after sending her pictures of an ornamental tree we thought was in distress. She was able to tell us what it was & how to address the problem...right over the phone! She was very professional and knowledgeable. Will definitely call/hire for any future problems.

Seven difficult to access trees cut down in one day. All debris was removed and the yard was left in great condition. I have used Arbortech in the past and will continue to use them whenever I need work done with the trees.

Extremely friendly, responsive and willing to work with you. We went with Justin because in the short time we met him, he showed a real passion and knowledge for tree grooming. We have a weeping maple that was seriously neglected for over a decade. It was growing into itself and unable to properly expand. Justin immediately caught the core issues with it and trimmed it into a beautiful manageable condition. He was fast, efficient and showed a real care in the detail work. Would absolutely recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of tree work!

We had Justin and his crew remove several trees that were overgrown and had potential to fall near our home. They were on time, efficient and left our yard spotless. I would highly recommend Arbortech if you are looking for a professional tree expert!
