When To Trim Your Trees

You may like to have a lot of trees in your yard. They will provide you with shade and they give your yard a nice natural look. However, there are some trees you want to stay on top of when it comes to keeping them trimmed back. This article will explain which trees you don't want to let grow out of control and educate you on the importance of keeping them trimmed.

Trees over the roof

If you have a lot of trees that hang over the roof of your house, you want to make sure they don't cause a lot of leaves to gather in the rain gutters. If you find that this is happening, then trimming the trees back from the roof can help.

Also, allowing your trees to grow out of control over the roof can cause large branches to fall on the roof if you live in an area with a lot of wind or freezing conditions.

Trees near the power lines

It's important for you to keep the trees near power lines trimmed back. These trees can cause problems if they grow so that they get tangled in the lines or if they fall onto them.  

Trees over the air conditioner compressor

You want to keep your central air conditioning compressor free from debris and when you have a tree growing over it, the leaves and twigs that fall off of the tree can surround the compressor and cause potential problems. Along with keeping these trees cut back, you should also make sure you regularly check around the compressor to remove any debris that may have blown next to it.

Trees over the driveway

If you have trees that hang over your driveway, you may want to have them cut back so the branches don't hang over the area where you park your cars. If branches fall then they can scratch the paint on your cars. Also, morning dew from the trees can fall on your car and this dew is hard to get off the paint when you wash the car.

If you have trees around your property that you need to have trimmed back then you should have a professional tree trimming service come out and take care of it for you. They have all the necessary tools and equipment to trim the trees quickly and they will haul the branches off your property for you.
