The beautiful trees that you see in front yards throughout New Jersey are not good looking by accident. In fact, many of the healthy and attractive trees that you see have been pruned professionally. Read the following article to learn more about why it’s important for a tree to be pruned regularly by tree-pruning experts.
In the woods outside of Somerset County, trees lose their branches regularly. But when you have a tree in a residential area, it’s important for the safety of the neighborhood that you stay on top of tree pruning. This way, old branches can be removed before they snap off and hurt somebody or cause property damage. If you have trees in your front yard next to the street or your driveway, pruning them ensures that overarching branches do not endanger your family and others in the neighborhood.
Encourage Proper Growth
Tree pruners are trained to prune a tree in the healthiest way possible. If you have any trees with crossing branches or unhealthy branches that have been infected by disease or insects, the pruner will remove these so that the structure of the tree remains strong. The tree pruner will also thin the crown, a process that reduces airflow and the likelihood of pest infestations.
Enhance the Tree’s Nature Beauty
Trees that are pruned look better and are more likely to bear flowers than unkempt trees. Trees are incapable of pruning themselves, which makes a tree-pruning service essential to achieving a natural yet well-manicured look for your trees. Pruning a young tree is especially important, as this will positively influence its shape and appearance for the rest of its lifetime.

Its springtime—your trees and flowers are finally budding, and your plants are beginning to grow at a remarkable rate. To ensure that the plants in your yard continue to flourish, it’s important to keep an eye out for pests. If you see any of the following pests in your yard, contact Action Tree Service, Inc. and ask about the Plant Pest Control Program.
One of the most common insect pests in NJ is the aphid. Shaped like a pear, these small bugs can be found hiding under leaves and inside flower buds. Though a few aphids in your yard aren’t harmful, aphids also have the ability to multiply quickly. If you have apple trees, roses, or vegetables, aphids in large numbers will suck the sugars out of them.
Another plant pest that is known for doing extensive damage is the Japanese beetle. These beetles are hungry, and will rapidly consume fruit trees and any other flowers and plants in your garden.
Snails and slugs can be a serious hindrance to your garden this summer. To find out if these slimy pests are in your garden, shine a flashlight into your yard at night. Look for shiny trails next to the decaying or damaged areas of your trees and plants.
Worms are generally good for the soil under your trees and plants, but grubs are a different story. If you have any squash in your garden, the squash borer grub can feed on the inside of the squash for over a month without being noticed from the outside.
Like most pests, the grasshopper is not a problem in small numbers. But also like most pests, the grasshopper can multiply very quickly. If you see the grasshopper population expanding in your yard, call a pest control company immediately.
To control the pests in your garden and prevent them from damaging your trees, plants, and flowers, call Action Tree Service, Inc. at (908) 315-5398. If you live in Somerset County or the surrounding area, our pest control program is an effective way to maintain the health of your garden.
