A Heavy Snowfall Can Cause A Lot of Damage to Your Trees.

It’s not surprising…heavy, wet snow can damage trees and shrubs in Northern Nevada and put an inordinate amount of weight on branches. This may cause them to bend, break or split, which could lead to tree failure of the entire tree uprooting and taking a fall. The Tree Professional of Reno is just that…a tree care professional.

It’s necessary to pay close attention this winter and to monitor some tree species that are more vulnerable to Northern Nevada’s heavy snowfalls. A tree with strong right-angle branches may very well withstand snow and ice better than a tree with narrow, more vertical branch curves.

It will help to know the vulnerability of the trees on your Northern Nevada property this winter. What is even more helpful is knowing the name The Tree Professional of Reno. Greg and his crew will help you maintain your trees in the upcoming months. Take a look at then call (775) 420-8694.

Wait a Little Longer Before Having Your Trees Pruned.

Here are some reasons why it should be put off – 


1.  Your plants are more at risk now for a fungal disease.

2.  After the leaves drop you can see the structure of the tree better.

4.  If there is any visible damage, you don’t hesitate to do it now.

The Weather is Unique in The Sierra Nevadas.

To put it in layman’s terms…these beautiful Sierra Nevada  mountains trap the moisture carried by rising winds from the Pacific Ocean. The effect is that it leaves Nevada the driest state in the nation. Here at The Tree Professional, we need to know that on YOUR behalf!

Climate is influenced and defined by a number of factors…atmospheric pressure, winds, ocean currents and temperature all play a part. That means that home and business owners have to pay particular attention to their trees, shrubs, and bushes.

Neglect is the bane of their existence. That is a big part of what we do at The Tree Professional.

Trimming or Pruning…that is the Question.

What is nobler? Both landscape tasks mean that you’re cutting back shrubs, right? You may not know it, but the answer is not so simple. Yes, shrub trimming and pruning involve removing growth, but they are two completely different approaches. You should understand the definitions of both and how they differ.

Here is one…shrub trimming is cutting off the tips of branches to clean up the overall appearance of a plant. It basically involves using power hedge trimmers to skim the tops and sides of shrubs so they look nice and neat and manicured. Pruning is good for shrubs because it removes branches that are dead or diseased and makes room for new growth.

Trimming or pruning…that MAY well be the question, but one thing that is a certainty is if you need shrubs pruned or trimmed or both in Northern Nevada you call The Tree Professional of Reno. That is easy. Just call (775) 420-8694 for the nicest property in the neighborhood! For a better look, Google
