Shrubs Need Maintenance Too

Shrubs and bushes need care and maintenance just like trees do. Just like trees, shrubs and bushes need to be pruned and trimmed.
Bushes and shrubs are just as likely to be attacked by insects and other pests. That means they need to be inspected for bug infestations and fungal infections. Fungal infections and bug infestations can quickly spread to other shrubs and bushes and to your trees. If bushes and shrubs get too big they may have to be removed. Such removal should be done by a professional tree service because these plants can grow back quickly from roots if they are not properly removed. All of the roots of a dead, sick or infested bush or shrub should be pulled up because fungal inspections can spread to other brushes and trees through the roots. A professional tree service will be able to do this quickly and properly. Just like trees, brushes and shrubs should be inspected by a professional arborist on a regular basis. Such an arborist can spot problems and properly remove diseased or infested shrubs and brushes. A professional tree service can also properly prune and trim shrubs and hedges. Thick Underbrush Brushes and shrubs can even become a fire hazard. Thick dry underbrush can easily catch fire and the resulting blaze can destroy everything on a property. Removing underbrush is one of the best ways to reduce the fire hazard on a piece of property.
Thick underbrush can also be home to a wide variety of animals and bugs that you don’t want on your property. This includes squirrels, rabbits, rats, mice, scorpions, snakes, ants, spiders, ticks and chiggers. Therefore removing it can make your property safer and healthier for your family or your tenants. Finally, thick underbrush can get in the way of building or development efforts. Having it removed by a professional service can reduce the cost of construction and excavation without reducing the natural beauty of your property.
