Proper tree pruning on any property helps breathe new life into the overall look of the landscape. It not only helps to maintain tree health, but it greatly adds to the appearance and appeal of the surrounding area. There are many reasons why property managers should consider having the trees on their managed properties pruned regularly. Here are a few of the most important ones.
Overgrown trees can block customers from seeing signs advertising the business or from viewing the property itself. This is where the property manager should take extra care to ensure all trees are trimmed accurately in order to provide as much visibility as possible.
All too often, trees are planted too close to a building or structure. General tree trimming guidelines suggest a clearance of 5 to 10 feet of clearance. Property managers don’t want to have to continually be trimming back overgrown branches, so it’s a good thing to have a Certified Arborist put a tree pruning plan in place. A good plan will include pruning the entire tree, not just one side.
Overgrown trees with low hanging branches can prevent the use of all available parking spots by making it impossible for a vehicle to access the space. Property managers want to keep those parking lot trees adequately pruned back so as to allow their customers plenty of room to park their cars and trucks. Having those trees regularly maintained can keep your lot looking nice and inviting to your patrons.
