Tree Removal Woodbridge VA: If you are trimming heavy tree limbs, be extra careful not to damage the bark or interfere with the tree's natural healing response.

Doing things wrong requires more work than doing things right, in particular if you consider how much effort it would take to remove a dying tree!

You might have the impression that because trees are so resilient, they can regrow tissue and fix injuries without any problem.

Unfortunately, this is only partially true – when you cut off a tree branch, new growth will eventually replace it with a scar-like patch of hardy wood called callus tissue or cambium– but the wound never really heals.

In a backyard or on a property, trees often need work to maintain their health. Improper pruning can cause the tree to become dangerous by limiting or stunting growth, and weakening its structure.

When branches become physically attached to the trunk of a tree, it can be difficult for the branch to regenerate on its own. This is especially common when someone cuts into the branch collar with an accidental cut.
