Dallas Freezes Over, Damages Trees: The importance of Tree Trimming

Trimming your trees is an important part of lawn care. Recently in Dallas, Texas we had an "ice storm" of sorts. Many people stayed home due to the slick streets. There were a number of auto accidents reported. Driving to Kroger for some eggs and milk, I noticed many tree limbs had fallen from the accumulation of ice. I noticed that all these trees had one thing in common, they looked neglected. Most of them had "suckers" all around their main branches. It's pretty easy to spot a tree that has been serviced withing a year or two. Some trees like Bradford Pears that grow quickly are very susceptible to branches splitting and breaking even without ice. I consider these trees "junk" trees or "builder" trees. That is another post. If you trim your trees at least once a year or once every two years, your tree will be healthier and stronger to withstand moments of stress and disease. If you need your trees trimmed or serviced, you can visit my website and fill out the request form for a free estimate.
