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.

Do You Need Residential Tree Services?

Don’t miss out on the benefits of winter tree services above. Hire the residential tree services you need right now.  Arborists work year-round to keep you and your property safe! Not to mention there are great WINTER DEALS available during this season.

These guys are FANTASTIC. Justin, Lindsey, their entire crew really great!! When Justin stopped by to take a look, he listened to what we wanted to accomplish, made suggestions on what to take, leave or just trim. His crew came as expected, did a GREAT job!! If it wasn't for the sign and missing trees you would never have known they were here. I could go on and on. Thank you!!!

We were so impressed with the whole team from Arbortech. Justin the owner was the first to respond to our quotes and was a pleasure to speak with, the office people, Lindsey, kept us up to date and we had the 'A' Team - Paul, Pete and Eric. The best way for me to describe the 'A' team is they are like artists. From their skill to their coordination to friendliness and beautiful clean up. . Marvel to watch. Would highly recommend this company and will use again in the future.

Very Happy with their customer service. There was a large dead tree pretty near my garage, the neighbor's garage, and another neighbor's home that really needed to get taken down. They came out and had it down in a few hours, had everything cleaned up right after. I plan to use them again myself and would definitely recommend them!

This is the second time we have used Arbortech to trim and cut down trees in our yard. After taking his time looking at the trees in question, Justin gave us his professional opinion as an arborist as to the work that needed to be done. The job was scheduled and the crew arrived promptly and did an amazing job! Paul accomplished much of this high up in the bucket equipment because of the height of the trees that needed to be taken down. It was incredible watching the men all work together. At the end of the job, the yard was cleaned up and the crew made sure we were happy with all their work. As an added bonus, we got a follow up call to make sure all had gone well, something you don't encounter much anymore! I highly recommend Arbortech for their knowledge and professionalism!!

I have used Arbortech now multiple times at my house and wouldn't use any other tree service company. Justin is fantastic to work with, he and his team were always incredibly professional, helpful, knowledgeable and just great to work with. For our most recent job, both Justin and Lindsey worked with us to meet a tight deadline for some other work we were having completed. Thank you again for all your help, we really appreciate it!!

Another fantastic job by Justin's biz: Arbortech Tree Inc. Today 3 guys came and cut up and stacked a bunch of 8'-10'' lengths of the trees that were felled a couple of months ago. These guys don't rest until the work is done. They worked efficiently and safely. Totally recommend these guys. Thanks!!

We've used Arbortech Tree for two large jobs at our property. They were great to work with. Their team was well skilled with handling the removal of large trees that were near our home. They communicated well throughout the scheduling of the job. I would highly recommend Arbortech!
