Inspect your trees regularly
It is important you monitor the condition of your trees at least once a year to identify changes such as diseases or insects before it becomes too serious. Catching these issues early increase the chances of remedying the problem and preventing costly or fatal damages in the future. Specific alterations in characteristics can signify the health status of the tree. The following is a list of tree features to be assessed:
Mature tree pruning is performed to prevent tree health complications and to reduce the risk of damage to surrounding structures. Pruning is recommended when weak, diseased or dead tree limbs are present and need be removed to improve the trees health. Trees are also pruned to improve light penetration to the area below and to improve shape and form.
It is extremely important to hire a certified arborist who understands the biology of the many species of trees and plants. Improper pruning can cause serious harm to the tree and potentially lead to death, which is why it is important to have a qualified arborist perform the tree pruning. The arborist can determine the best pruning technique for the tree and location. Types of pruning include the following:
Trees have many benefits but they can also carry many risks and liabilities, especially when consistent assessments are not done or hazardous trees are not addressed right away. Trees that have been damaged are also more prone to diseases and insect infestation which compromise the stability leading to a greater risk later on. The following are some objective observations you can make so assess the safety of your tree:
What you should be doing for your regular tree maintenance:
Proper maintenance and pruning of trees is imperative for a variety of reasons, most importantly to extend the healthy life span of your tree and also to prevent hazardous situations from tree damage.

Tree Service in Massachusetts
There are many types of tree services proved in Massachusetts, not limited to pruning and removal. We provide all these services year round. Most people have their trees serviced in spring and summer and don't realize fall and winter can be the best times of year for tree service. When the leaves start falling off the trees it means they are going into dormancy- this basically means the trees go into hibernation. While the trees are in dormancy they are less likely to be shocked from pruning or transplantation. Additionally, when trees are removed in the winter there can be less mess since there aren't leaves falling everywhere in addition to the saw dust. Cost is another great benefit of having tree service in the winter.
What brings down the cost of tree service in Massachusetts during the winter?
First, there are no leaves blocking the arborist's view so the job can move a little quicker.
Second, most people do not think to get tree service in the winter, so it is a relatively slow season reflecting a perfect example of supply and demand; less demand = less cost.
Lastly, because there are no leaves to clean up with the rest of the tree debris, the clean up takes less time and the quantity of waste being dumped is less- both of which decrease the overhead for the tree company which will then also be reflected in the price.
