Labor Day is just around the corner, which means that fall won’t be far behind (believe it or not). Once we head into September, it will be time to think about one of the most important late summer / early autumn tasks you have for your commercial property: pruning.
Pruning may not seem like a priority when it comes to managing the aesthetics of your commercial landscape, which is why owners and managers often put it off or skip it altogether. Another reason that pruning gets the short end of the stick? People don’t know how to do it right, so they avoid doing it at all – or they do it excessively, which can be even worse.
Whatever the reason, pruning is often neglected on commercial properties – and the result is unhealthy trees, shrubs, hedges, and bushes that can wreck the curb appeal of your property and even pose safety risks to your customers and passers-by.
Pruning for commercial property should be performed for a number of reasons, including:
It should be pretty clear by now why pruning is so important for your commercial property. But how do you actually do it?
When it comes to pruning your property right, the devil is in the details – how much to trim, which trees and plants require more aggressive pruning and which need a gentler touch, how to handle young vs. old plantings, how to deal with a blocked power line, and dozens of other issues need to be considered and handled.
For all these reasons and more, pruning on your commercial property is a job best left to professionals who understand how to handle any problem, and have the sharp, well-maintained tools and training to do the job right.
