Trees are a beautiful part of any garden landscape, and as there are so many different varieties, you can be sure that there will be some that look good in your garden. The great thing about such variety is that you can choose the shape of tree you want; some grow tall and slender, while others may spread their branches wide and low, so with careful planning, you can have trees on your property that look exactly the way you want them to.
There are, however, some things you need to consider carefully if you want to add trees to your garden, or indeed if you have trees there already and are not sure what to do to keep them maintained. Also, you may want trees trimming, cutting back or removing completely, and all of this is work that needs to be done by experts, rather than as home DIY.
One problem with trees is that some of them can have extensive root systems; this means they are likely to extend their roots underground – and sometimes quite far down – outwards towards any buildings that may be in the vicinity. The result can be damage to the foundations, which is another reason you may need trees removing from your property.
Trimming and Pruning
Trees can also be a problem if they are permitted to grow beyond the boundaries of your property; any tree overgrowing public places, which originates on your land, is your responsibility. This means that branches that overhang a path or road, or that come to close to power lines, for example, need to be trimmed back to an acceptable length, and need to be done so before they cause any damage.
It is worth making sure you have your local tree cutting company in Lansing look at your trees on a regular basis as this will keep things under control, rather than waiting until there is a problem, which will be more expensive to deal with.
