If you have trees on your property and want them to live a long healthy life, scheduling tree inspections can be a critical part of maintaining those trees. When you schedule an inspection with a certified arborist or a licensed tree expert, you can trust the professionals to evaluate your tree, its trunk, bark, and branches, as well as the soil around the tree. When a knowledgeable tree inspector can look closely at your tree, they can spot any signs of damage or disease and take steps to fix the problem before your tree experiences long-term consequences.
Why Schedule Tree Inspections?
Tree inspections are essential for allowing tree care professionals to spot and resolve issues before they become a threat to the tree or require expensive procedures to fix. If an issue is allowed to go for too long without being addressed, it may be too late to perform any treatments and the tree will decline at a faster pace. During a tree inspection, an arborist can:
- Diagnose tree diseases
- Identify specific watering needs
- Identify pest infestations
- Protect your household and property by removing branches that are at risk of falling
- Detect structural damage, especially after severe storms
How Often Should You Schedule Inspections?
Even when your trees are healthy and undamaged, getting regular tree inspections can be extremely beneficial. The exact frequency you prefer will depend on your trees, property, and climate. However, scheduling inspections every three years is often a suitable frequency.
If your property experiences extreme weather, like a hurricane or drought, inspections are also recommended. You should also call for tree inspections when you notice signs of declining health in your tree, including decaying branches, insect infestations or reduced canopy health.
Why You Should Keep Your Trees Healthy
Taking these extra steps to care for your trees can provide you with benefits in the long run. Healthy trees add value to your property that only increases with the age of the tree. Your trees also beautify your property, purify the air, and save energy by providing shade to your home. Trees can be a huge asset for any home and keeping them healthy through inspections is critical for maintaining that appeal.
