Proper pruning promotes healthy trees and flood protection
Tree care is important not just for the aesthetics in a community, but it is an important part of the community's flood protection. Pruning vegetation helps to reduce debris that can clog swale areas or inlets and reduces the likelihood of unhealthy trees or branches falling into drainage canals creating potential blockages.
Just as proper pruning promotes healthy tree growth, improper pruning may weaken trees and destroy branch structures.
Zimmerman Tree Service in West Palm Beach recommends hiring a provider that is knowledgeable in the American National Standards Institute's A300 Standards for Tree Care. Following guidelines from professional arborists will not only improve the overall health and appearance of trees but will also help prepare trees for storm and wind events.
