Here is a tree prune Kelley did a week ago in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This illustrates the need for proper care and pruning of your trees for their health and your safety. A branch broke off months ago and was not properly smoothed. As you can see, the end is quite jagged and rough edges tend to retain quite a bit of moisture. This can easily lead to tree rot and compromise a tree’s health and stability. You can see where the rot started to creep into the trunk of the tree; this can cause all kinds of tree health problems (much like an uncleaned or untreated injury to a person!), and physical safety issues for pedestrians and property. Take a few minutes to look around your trees for similar breaks such as this one, so proper maintenance can prevent more severe issues down the road.
Spring is a good time to clean up yards and to take a close look at any trees that may have been damaged by Winter storms. It’s also a good idea to examine large trees for structural integrity before their full foliage arrives. Contact Kelley Tree Service for all your wood and brush Spring cleaning! With professional, experienced crews and competitive pricing for all projects, we’ll take care of you.
Here is a recent picture of us turning unwanted brush and logs into valuable mulch for Spring gardens and grounds.
Kelley Tree Service arborists removed several large trees in Brookline this past weekend. Below is a picture of one of us working high in the air to remove branches before taking down the trunk of this oak tree.
