Most trees, once they are mature, really only need to be trimmed on occasion or every few years. But the faster a tree grows, the more often it will need to be trimmed. If you have any of the following fast-growing trees on your land, then you should consider contacting a tree service for more frequent trimming.
Autumn Blaze Red Maple
This variety of red maple is a cross between silver maple and red maple. Homeowners love its stunning, bright red leaves and its broad, shade-casting canopy. Another reason it is so beloved is its fast growth. The downside to that fast growth is that if you don't have the tree trimmed regularly, it may develop branches too close to the ground, which makes it less suitably shaped as a shade tree. Have it trimmed on a regular schedule so it maintains its round shape with space underneath.
Weeping willow trees certainly create visual interest on a property. The long, swinging tendrils blow in the breeze and may make your space feel magical and mystical. But if the tendrils are not trimmed regularly, they can start to look disheveled and ugly. They may also become infected with fungi and spread the infection further up into the tree. Regular trims from a tree care expert familiar with weeping willows are essential for the longevity of these fast-growing trees.
The Lombardy poplar is a tall, narrow tree that is commonly used to create wind blocks and green fence lines. It grows very quickly and maintains its compact shape with little need for interference. However, the trees can develop multiple leader branches, which causes them to become overly broad. The extra leaders need to be trimmed away promptly before they have a chance to develop too much. So, you want to have any Lombardy poplars on your land trimmed regularly.
This is another fast-growing variety of poplar known for its bright flowers, which appear in May or June. These trees grow very quickly in full sun, but they can take on a flat and sprawling appearance, which is hard to correct if you don't do it quickly. So, have a tulip poplar trimmed regularly so it doesn't take over your whole yard, width-wise.
If you have other trees that seem to be growing quickly, it's a good idea to have them trimmed regularly as well. Talk to a tree trimming service to learn more.
