Arboriculture Dead-Wooding

What Is Dead-Wooding?

Over time, for various reasons, a tree may loose some of its vitality thereby making it more difficult to fully supply nutrients to all of its branches. As a result, some of those branches are going to die or become weak and hazardous. Dead-wooding is an arboriculture process of removing dead or weakened branches to allow remaining limbs to flourish. One of the main reasons for performing dead-wooding service is to maintain a safe environment within a tree's perimeter. Falling branches may become a potential hazard to pedestrians, vehicles, or buildings during wind storms. This arboriculture service is also recommended for maintaining overall structural health and strength. Removing dead branches helps to reduce the weight-carrying burden as well as decreasing its resistance to strong winds. That leads to less strain and a more robust tendency.

When And Why Is Dead-Wooding Necessary?

In the preceding paragraph we briefly explained that it may become necessary to remove dead branches for safety reasons. There are also underlying purposes for a tree itself. Though at times dead or dying branches may not be a hazard over pedestrian walkways, public roadways, vehicle driveways, or private residential property buildings it is still a good long-term maintenance service practice.

Branches die for numerous environmental reasons ranging from insect infestations such as Asian Long-Horned Beetles (within Toronto GTA), Gypsy Moths, or termites, deficiency of light, as well as disease or root damage. Naturally, sooner or later, those branches will decay back to a main stem or trunk thereby causing abscission. When left to nature that can be a slow process leading to potential hazardous conditions during the interim. It is much better to take a proactive approach. Hire a tree service company for an assessment to provide recommended courses of action to lessen potential hazardous liabilities.

At times homeowners delay what they consider unnecessary expenses associated with arboriculture. Often, required work only becomes apparent when they consider selling their residential property. Unsightly landscaped properties are aesthetically unpleasant and may lead to diminished amenity value. Tree crowns look, and are, much more healthy with the ineffective wood removed. This arboriculture service can be performed any time of the year, though preferably, not during spring budding.
