In Tampa Bay, we have beautiful lush trees in our yards, on our properties, and at our businesses. We want to make a great first impression and enjoy the fruits of our landscaping labor all year round. Plus, we want our yards to look inviting and luxurious during the many outdoor backyard entertaining barbecues and get-togethers.
Because we have warm weather for the majority of the year, our trees in Tampa Bay bloom and grow rapidly compared to the northern part of the United States that experience a cold winter season. Here in St. Petersburg and Tampa, we experience significant storms with heavy wind, rain, and occasionally hurricanes that can do real damage to our trees. It is wise to trim and prune trees before a storm is coming, so no property damage occurs. Once a storm does happen, it is vital to address the damage immediately. You’ll want to contact an experienced tree service to assist in which trees need help, how to do it, and take care of it quickly and professionally.
Trees can receive injury from inexperienced pruning cuts, storms, excessive weight, extreme temperatures, animals, wind, excess weight, trunk wounds, chemicals, disease, and other stresses.
When a tree is injured, it creates boundaries around it. This process is called compartmentalization – the process that resists the loss of normal wood function and resists the spread of discoloration and decay. The Compartmentalization of Decay in Trees “CODIT” is where tree cells form a barrier zone around wounds that serve to protect trees from further deterioration.
With minimal adverse effects to a tree, you can remove dying, broken, diseased, or dead limbs. Before removing the trees or limbs, this is the time to bring in a tree expert to access the situation and give you a recommendation.
Depending on the tree and the season, there is an ideal time to prune live branches. If you want tree growth on deciduous trees live-branch, pruning should be done just before growth resumes in early spring. With dormant trees, pruning can minimize the risk of pest issues and allows trees a full growing season. If a tree has a fungus, pruning will enable the pathogen to spread to other trees or on that particular tree.
