The Maintenance Chore No Landlord Should Put Off

A lush, green yard can be incredibly enticing for renters. Without regular pruning, however, trees can present a real threat to the health of your property and the safety of your tenants. While some maintenance chores can be shrugged off until the next quarter, this is one you don't want to procrastinate on. Pruning will make your property look neat and tidy while also ensuring your trees stay healthy.

Before you start pruning, take a careful assessment of your trees. You'll want to remove branches and limbs that are weak or dying. Take a close up look at each branch before deciding which to snip. Use a three-point method to begin. 

On the branch that needs to be removed, start by sawing about halfway through the bottom of the limb. Then make your top cut by sawing one or two inches from your initial undercut. Next, make the final cut to remove the limb entirely. Any diseased, dying branches or limbs with water sprouts can be safely removed.

When in doubt, leave this important job to the experts. Safety is key when pruning trees, and if you have a tree near an electrical wire, call on a professional to do the work.
