The way they color the world green shows that without them the earth would have been a boring place. How are the humans and animals live on earth if someone does not take it upon themselves to take care of the trees. You do not need to take care of all the tree in a forest but taking care of those two or three trees in your backyard makes a difference. You may not have been taking proper care of your trees because of you had no information on how to go about it. If you notice these signs on your tree do not hesitate to prune it.
Check for any branches that are broken on the tree because this is usually a sign of damage. The broken branches are mostly as a result of heavy snow or wind, and it will cause more damage to the tree if you do not take action immediately.
There is something wrong with your tree if it turns out to be very green and that should raise your concern to prune it. The branches with high density can fall if strong winds blow against it because in the process of leaves swaying it will not be able to maintain stability.
Ensure that the tree does not overgrow outwards but let it grow upwards. The outward growth will make the branches to get heavy and likely to collapse the heavier they get.
Your tree needs more attention and care than ever if its bark has too many deep cracks on the bark. You have to immediately take your tools and trim the parts of the tree that is rotting if you do not want the condition to worsen by spreading to other parts of the tree.
Your tree should not have excess deadwood because that shows that there is a problem somewhere with it that needs to be addressed. You should cut the deadwood before your favorite tree in the backyard dies.
It is high time you stopped gazing at the wild and untamed branches of your tree because the beauty as you may call it may cause more harm. There is no need to bring treatment chemicals when the branches of your tree start wandering because they are still healthy but what you ought to do is to trim them so that they do not fall on your roof and cost you unplanned costs of roof repairs.
Crossing branches shows how much you have forgotten about attending to your trees properly. The interior side of the tree is protected by the bark, but when branches cross, they rub against each other, destroy the barks and leave the interior of the tree bare.
A misshapen tree needs trimming on a regular basis until it get the right shape. It is more comfortable to shape the tree when it is still young, unlike a mature tree to enable it to grow with proportionately distributed weight.
