Some homeowners may see a damaged tree and think it is a lost cause. Thankfully, your Tucson landscaping company can help you determine if the tree can be saved or should be removed.
Even trees that have lost entire limbs can be repaired and continue on to live healthy lives. Mature trees that are large and leafy can lose a major limb and still survive. It should be tended to and closely monitored by a Tucson landscaping professional to give it the best shot at survival. If a tree is young and healthy, it can also survive the loss of a couple minor branches. As long as the trunk and a significant portion of the limbs are still intact, a young tree can live on.
Wait and See
There are some instances where your Tucson landscaper will exercise caution for a tree. If a tree has sustained heavy damage, but its trunk and crown are mostly intact, a professional arborist should be able to treat the tree and save it. Some smaller trees may also sustain significant damage and still be saved, only if they are handled by a professional. Many unknowledgeable homeowners and landscapers may be tempted to prune a damaged tree too much. This is a mistake and can actually result in death of the tree. Trees need as much healthy foliage as they can get to make enough food to live.
Sadly, some trees cannot survive certain damages and must be removed. Trees that have disease or damage to their trunk usually need to be removed. If the trunk is damaged beyond repair, the rest of the tree will not survive. When a tree has lost its entire leafy crown, then it does not have enough coverage and foliage to produce necessary nourishment.
