There are many reasons you might maintain property, either by taking pride in your yard or perhaps you do so professionally. And while you likely have cut your grass down to an art, most people just don’t know how to care for their trees.
That rarely stops them from hacking off branches and limbs with chainsaws or hedgers, even if they have no clue what they are cutting. All too often, someone lops off a terminal branch and kills it off despite being in otherwise excellent condition.
The only way of knowing what to do to maintain your curb appeal is learning the basics of proper weekly tree care needs. In no time, you’ll have the best-looking lot on the block, all without much additional effort.
Add these items to your weekly list of chores to make your lawns appear even better. And for everything else, you can always rely on Franklin TN Tree Care.
Have the Right Plants Installed
Hire Experienced Tree Removal Contractors
Following a severe storm or unexpected cold snap, you’ve likely had someone knock on your door offering to cut your dead trees down. They pitch you a price you can’t turn down, and you hire them on the spot.
However, it isn’t until you hear a loud crash and broken glass do you think to ask about licensing and insurance. By then it’s too late to realize that they’re just someone with a chainsaw in hand, and now you’re liable for fixing the damage down to your neighbor’s property.
Everyone will likely need tree removal services at some point, and it can feel tempting to take the low price offered at your door. Choosing a professional tree service provider, on the other hand, is always the safest method for everyone involved.
Before a cheap tree removal contractor makes a costly error, do your research before hiring someone. If nothing else, ask the door-to-door landscaper for a business card to learn if they are legitimate or not.

Install Mulching Around Plants
Although trees use thick bark as protection, their most vulnerable areas are still their root systems. As is the case with other plants in your backyard, roots stay easily damaged by pests, temperature changes, and too much moisture.
You may think that because the ground covers them that there’s nothing more to do on your part. However, installing mulch remains one of the frequently recommended yard care solutions with more landscaping services.
Mulching both keeps roots better defended from physical harm, but it also creates a blanket, keeping them warm during winter. That will allow all of your trees a better odds at surviving the harshest winters possible.
You can find mulching at nearly any retail center, although for the best results, you’d want to use fresh products. Over time, mulch can lose nutrients while sitting on store shelves.
Whether you have questions regarding trees or you’d like to hire us for your yards, call Franklin TN Tree Care.
