Trees can make a commercial property look much nicer. They add a bit of nature to the space, and they can also provide shade. However, you do need to care for your trees well to keep them — and your commercial property — looking their best. Here are some key tips for effective tree care on commercial property.

Have the Trees Trimmed More Often

Especially on a commercial property where customers are always visiting and seeing your trees, you don't want them trimmed back substantially, all at once. This sort of dramatic trimming can leave your tree looking a bit bare for a while, which is not overly appealing. A better approach is to have your tree trimmed more frequently — a little at a time. In most cases, having your trees trimmed once a year is sufficient. Your tree trimmer can then remove just a few branches each year. After each of these trimming sessions, the tree will look better, but not as if someone gave it a radical transformation.

Have Your Trees Sprayed With Fungicides

Trees are susceptible to several fungal infections. Some of these infections, like root rot, are really serious and often kill the tree. Others, like anthracnose, won't kill the tree — but they will still cause ugly spots on the tree's leaves, and those spots won't go away very quickly. On a commercial property, you don't want a spotty-leaf tree ruining your aesthetic. So, arrange to have the tree care company spray your trees with fungicides once or twice a year. This will lower your tree's risk of contracting such an infection.

Have the Trees Deep Watered

Many tree care companies offer a service called deep watering. They will inject water deep beneath the surface of the ground where the tree's roots can more readily access it. This is more effective than applying water to the surface of the soil, and it creates a lot less mess, which is nice on commercial property. Deep watering will also help a tree grow greener and more vibrant leaves, which will improve the look of your property, too. How often you'll need this done will depend on the rainfall in your area. Your tree care company can make a recommendation.

Caring for trees on a commercial property does take a little vigilance and dedication. Find a commercial tree trimming and care company you can depend on, and entrust your trees to their care.
