Why Your NY & NJ Trees Need Regular Plant Health Care

April 5, 2019 |

Trees add dimension, shade, natural beauty and a place to play. And yet, trees need regular care to keep them healthy and vigorous. Trees resist disease, the effects of drought and harmful insects better when they get the attention they deserve.

What’s Your First Step in Healthy Trees? Hiring Only a Certified Arborist

To get the most out of your Rockland and Bergen County trees, you need to practice preventative care. And that’s where a certified arborist comes in.

At Majestic Lawn Care and Landscape, Joe Holland, president of Majestic, is an ISA certified arborist.

And you want a certified arborist to evaluate your trees and make recommendations to preserve their health.

Otherwise, you risk your trees’ lives if you allow someone who isn’t a certified arborist to climb your trees and start topping them. Alternatively, someone who doesn’t know anything about trees decides to cut yours down when it only needed a little pruning.

Your Trees Give You These 9 Benefits

Did you know that trees provide more than shade? Indeed, your trees add value to your life as well as to your Rockland and Bergen County property. Here are nine benefits that your trees give you and your family:

  1. It raises the value of your property: If you have mature trees, their value can be upwards to $1,000 to $10,000 per tree. And trees, mature or young, increase your property value by 20%.
  2. Aesthetics: There’s no doubt about it. Trees add beauty to your landscape. Flowering Dogwoods and Redbuds in the early spring to the blazing oranges, reds and yellows on your Sugar Maples in fall, trees provide seasonal loveliness.
  3. Privacy: Got nosey neighbors? Trees are one way to keep prying eyes off your backyard or swimming area.

  1. Food and shelter: Trees provide food and shelter for birds, bats, beneficial insects and other animals. In early spring, bees benefit when tree buds are opening. These young leaves and flowers provide a much-needed food source.
  2. Natural air conditioning: You can save money on your energy bills over the summer when you have trees strategically placed on your property. Trees can lower air temperatures by 20°F to 45°F. Plus, trees provide shade for your home, keeping you cooler and more relaxed during the summer.
  3. Remove storm water runoff: Tree roots filter and trap storm water. The trapped water hydrates the trees as well as releases moisture into the atmosphere.
  4. Keeps you and your loved ones safe: Studies have shown that trees reduce crime in neighborhoods.

  1. Promotes calmness: In our hectic world, we often feel anxious and stressed. And yet, trees allow you to let go. If you aren’t convinced, spend five minutes looking up at a full tree canopy. It’s amazing!
  1. Memory makers: If you ever climbed a tree or sat underneath one when reading a good book on a summer afternoon, you know that trees provide favorite memories for adventure and fun.

Of course, you probably can think of more benefits that trees give you and your family. For trees to continue giving you those benefits, though, you need to provide regular plant health care for them.

Your Certified Arborist Provides More than Pruning Services

The spring and fall are perfect times to have your property’s trees assessed. Age, disease and insects can kill a tree from the inside out. And when a dead tree topples over in the next big storm, it could damage your home, outbuildings and potentially hurt someone.

When Joe Holland evaluates your trees, he’ll inspect them for disease, age, and insect damage, weak unions,  structural issues and any safety issues.

Joe will measure your tree trunk’s diameter, the length of your tree as well as inspect the leaves for insect damage or early leaf drop.

After he’s finished, Joe will write up a report with his findings and recommendations including on-going tree health care, such as

  • Disease control
  • Fertilization
  • Insect control
  • Pruning and trimming recommendations
  • Tree removal and replacement.
