Steadfast Tree Care Publishes Post on Things to Do After Tree Trimming

Steadfast Tree Care, a professional tree services provider based in Ruther Glen, Virginia, has published an article on the company blog discussing some of the things that have to be done after tree trimming in order to safeguard tree health and avoid potentially harmful effects of the trimming. One of the key issues is what must be done to that part of the tree where a limb was cut off. It may be good idea to paint the tree wound with wound paint or dressing to prevent the entrance of water, bacteria, fungi, and decay. It may also be beneficial to apply organic fungicide or insecticide to the tree wound. More information about what to do after tree trimming can be gleaned from

Phillip Wood, a representative for Steadfast Tree Care, says, “On what to put on a tree after cutting off a limb, professional arborists, landscape gardeners, and horticulturalists are divided. One group believes it is essential to seal the tree wound while the other group believes the natural healing abilities of the tree are enough to protect the tree from disease and decay. As is the case in every field of research, opinions differ. So, it is your responsibility to study the two perspectives and pick one that is most appropriate for your situation.”

There are actually a number of ways that a tree can be affected by the sealing of the tree wound with wound paint or dressing. This can prevent the formation of calloused wood on the tree, which can make the tree weaker. This may also seal in water, fungi, bacteria, and decay. And it may help keep the trees healthy when pruning. On the other hand, the wound paint may attract disease-causing organisms and it may interfere with the tree’s natural recovery process, which nature has perfected for eons.

Another important factor to consider is the way the tree is trimmed. That is why it is vital to have a professional tree services provider to perform the trimming or pruning. For instance, it may be better to prune during late winter when the trees are dormant. And the pruning shears and saws may need to be sterilized between cuts. There may also be need to treat the tree wounds with organic fungicide or insecticide.

Steadfast Tree Care offers tree trimming and pruning services, tree cutting and removal, and additional services. Tree trimming and pruning can help keep the trees healthy and beautiful. There are a number of times when trimming or pruning is required. One instance is when tree branches and leaves touch a part of the house or electric power lines. Tree trimming or pruning can help avoid such dangerous situations where a tree branch can fall down on the house or people, or the branch may touch a power line and cause a short circuit and a power failure.

Trimming or pruning may also be needed when the trees appear to be overgrown. This is to make the trees look better and care must be taken to ensure that the cutting is done by tree experts to ensure that the tree is not harmed. It may also be that there are diseases and pests in certain branches of the tree and such branches will have to be removed to prevent the disease and pests from spreading to other parts of the tree or to another tree.

Steadfast Tree Care also offers tree cutting or tree removal services. There are situations where a tree has to be removed, such as when a particular tree is dead or diseased. The tree cutting or removal has to be done by a professional tree services company to ensure safety for the people, the property, and the trees.
