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.

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!

Professional, Skilled, Outstanding Customer Service, Reliable, Competitively Priced. March 15, 2022 Starting last October 2021, I had been trying to have five trees taken down in Thompson, Connecticut (northeast corner of the state) for my mother-in-law. I had spoken with a number of the local tree removal contractors in the northeast area. I spoke with four contractors over a period of two months, but only two of them came out and looked at the job; and only one provided me with a verbal quote. I spoke with him and set a date to remove the trees. The day came and they did not show up. I was finally able to speak with them two-weeks later after leaving multiple voicemails. They stated they would set another date for the removal and get back to me. Then silence. In January I reached out to Arbortech (Justin & Lindsey) as they had done tree work for me in the past at my home in Coventry. Arbortech went out to Thomson, looked at the job, and provided me with a quote for removal. Even though it was out of their normal work area, Justin stated he "liked a challenge" and this job was! Multiple trees close to the house, all with large limbs over the roof area, neighbors fixed gazebo below one of the trees, and limited access. We set a date, They showed up, the electric company showed up to drop the power lines and they got to work. By the end of the day the job was done. Justin and crew made it look like just another routine tree removal. I was duly impressed and awed at their skill and professionalism. Once again, when I need tree service, I know who to call first. If you need tree work, Arbortech should be at the top of your call list. 2019 Just had them take down 6 large tall trees for me, all surrounding my outbuilding and within 50 feet of my house. I chose Arbortech based on the reviews here. Needless to say, I made the right choice. If you need quality tree work at a reasonable price, consider Arbortech. I will be using them for future tree removal work.
