Myth 4. Trees... flourish in the forest without maintenance, so they don’t need it in my front yard either!

Urban trees are required to contend with many negative influences not encountered by forest trees: limited rooting areas, confined spaces, pollution, soil compaction, asphalt and concrete over roots, etc.

Besides, an occasional dead tree in the forest is not noticed among the many, but the loss of one significant landscape tree can be devastating to your home.

Very professional team, and friendly, happy to leave the mulch behind for your garden if you wish, clean up afterwards as well, grind stumps down below the soil level if you wish.
Very reasonably priced.

Myth 3. Installing cables, bolts or other hardware will render a hazardous limb or tree safe.

Sometimes, to preserve a substantial limb, trunk or entire tree it becomes necessary to provide additional support through the installation of hardware. The installation of cables, bolts and other hardware in trees is intended to reduce hazard potential only and does not permanently remedy structural weaknesses and is not a guarantee against failure. Such hardware must also be inspected periodically and adjusted or replaced as necessary.

2. I should buy the tallest or bushiest tree I can find at the nursery to get the most for my money.

The tallest tree may actually be weaker than smaller specimens in the same size container. While aesthetic features are important, tree trunk, branch and root system structure are far more critical to the long term success of the tree. Early structural ( trunk/branches) or root system problems are often the source of failure (breakage) of the tree many years later

Myth 1. Tree... roots systems extend deep below the ground.

The large supporting root system near the base of the tree tapers rapidly into smaller roots, with the vast majority of all roots being concentrated in the upper few inches of soil. While a few roots may extend as deep as several feet, it is rare for many to exist at significant depths (more than a few feet). Therefore, protecting these upper layers of soil is critical to maintaining tree health.

5 MYTHS ABOUT TREE CUTTING!

Trimming is very important part of tree maintenance and care. It directly affects the health, longevity and the ability of tree to resist storm harm, Sorry to say, this type of maintenance process is often misinterpreted as of the myths which cloud its actual value. Here are some myths:

Myth #1. Trees will develop just fine even without trimming process.

...

It is correct that forest plants perfectly develop with own natural way of trimming. But in most suburban yards the trees have different requirements. Most of the suburban trees want some type of pruning to maintain and keep their shape and to remove fast-developing water buds. When deciding about tree lopping, remember that you should never eliminate excess part of tree in just one trimming.

Myth #2. Cutting very close to the trunk will assist the tree to quickly heal.

Trees do not really heal, indicating they cannot restore lost or damaged tissue. They can just cover their sores by developing new wood’s layers. At the time trimming, keep away from pruning very close to the parent limb of tree and retain the collar of branch.

Myth #3. Trimming wounds that are over three inches have to be coated with wound covering.

Tree wound sealants or dressings are products based on petroleum which are usually used to freshly seal cut wood and avoid insect infestation or decay. On the other hand, reports show that utilizing wound dressing, seals in dampness, causes rot slow down compartmentalization and ultimately causes cracks which may rendering the tree to pathogens. Also, it decreases the creation of new wood’s layers.

Myth #4. Trim back the crown of tree to recompense for root loss throughout transplanting.

It is not a wonderful idea to trim trees after the process of transplanting apart from when there is a requirement to remove broken or dead branches. The younger tree’s crown must not be trimmed back to frame for the misplaced roots. Negligible trimming is required throughout the starting time of tree planting.

Myth #5. Trimming certain tree’s species prior in the spring will source bleeding that may lead to health and stress problems.

It is correct that some trees like birches and maples that “bleed” from cuts done prior in the spring. On the other hand, this bleeding does not stress or hurt the trees. It often happens when a tree drops its sap that is quite minor in the general tree’s health. With few exceptions, you can anytime trim trees. But the most suitable time to do it is during the dormancy of tree or later than the period of flowering. The nastiest time of pruning time is when the tree has just leafed and you should avoid this time.
