The benefits of pruning, trimming and tree mulching in Perth
Did you know that trees alter the environment by moderating the climate, improving the air, decreasing stormwater runoff and the obvious housing animals and providing shelter and shade for people.
This is why it is so important that we look after them.
Pruning, trimming and mulching your trees ensures the tree maintains its health, safety and stimulates growth. The benefits of this can mean reducing disease problems, eliminating weak branches, providing much-needed nourishment, maintaining the aesthetic look of the tree and allows the tree to grow stronger.
Perth’s hot and dry weather can sometimes affect the safety of trees and this can be particularly dangerous for people living nearby. A few problems the Dickies Trees team see are low growing branches and growth forms near paths and driveways, which cause accessibility problems and even mess. During the summer months, we also see irregular branch growth that can change the growth habit of other branches. This results in a deformed/misshaped tree. Pruning and trimming in the right areas of the tree is what will stimulate correct growth as well as restrict growth if required.
Another major reason to mulch trees in Perth is due to water restrictions. Mulching assists the environment by conserving water, sometimes by up to 60%. Mulch keeps the soil moist and stops the topsoil from drying out.
So there you have it, a couple of tips on why pruning, trimming and mulching your trees is beneficial in the Perth environment.
