    When Should Trees Be Pruned?

    Pruning is beneficial for the whole tree because it removes dead, damaged or diseased branches to help prevent insect and decomposer organisms from thriving. This is a very important task which also helps improve the overall appearance of a tree and encourages new growth. By pruning trees a specific way, you can encourage fruiting, flowering and shape plants into specific forms.

    Top 5 Best Trees to Plant in Vancouver

    Advice from Tree Works, Your Trusted Vancouver Tree Services Company

    Adding trees to your backyard not only improves the value of your home, but it can also have significant benefits for the health of your family and those living nearby. Providing shade and privacy, improving air quality and making the landscape more beautiful, trees are a welcome must-have if you have the space.

    It does take some planning and knowledge of trees, though. You can’t just plant any type of tree and expect good results. Trying to plant something that isn’t suited to your climate or location can be a mistake that costs you both time and money. Knowing the best choices for your space, landscape features, soil conditions, temperature and lifestyle, is important.

    Summer days lying in a hammock under a shady maple is not only a great pastime, but it can also be an investment in your home’s value. Many homeowners are first drawn to their future house because of curb appeal. Beautiful, tidy landscaping with trimmed lawns and mature trees are a pleasure for anyone looking to purchase a new abode. Even if you are not looking to sell in the very near future, trees take time to grow, so planting now can give you a fantastic return on your investment.

    Benefits of Working with a Certified Arborist

    There are a lot of great reasons to hire a certified arborist to take care of the trees on your property. Arborists, if you haven’t heard of them before, are essentially tree surgeons. To become an arborist you have to take a lot of courses in a variety of subjects, including forestry, ecology, soil science, and plant pathology, amongst others. To be an arborist who is also certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), you must have years of experience and take additional courses to ensure you’re keeping up with the latest scientific discoveries and best practices for tree care.
