Maryland Tree Care in Baltimore gives you highly efficient results in trimming, pruning, simple branch removal, storm recovery, and overall maintenance for trees of all sizes.
We take pride in giving our clients the benefits of aesthetic presentation while still maintaining the natural beauty of the tree’s original look, respecting common rules of keeping the safety of the trees as well.
Tree care is an ongoing process that begins with how the tree is planted, and if the owner has given the tree the correct circumstances for growth to occur. A hole for the seed to grow that is dug too deep, seeds watered too little to sprout, and improper soil care over time can lead to poor growth.
Also, the soil itself doesn’t need to be tampered with or adjusted in order for the seed to grow most fruitfully. Trees will naturally gather nutrients on their own to survive, which is scientifically proven to be the healthiest route.
Mulching over soil
Mulching should be added over soil to maximize tree health. Two to three inches of pine bark or wood chips will give the tree a strong long-term foundation, leading to continuous growth.
Tree health metrics
The following make up the general rule of thumb in giving your trees a healthy amount of space to grow without having a structural impact on the property:
- Trees that grow to be greater than 60 feet tall should be planted 20 feet away from the structure, with 40 feet of space between the next tree.
- Trees growing anywhere from 30-60 feet need to be planted a minimum of 15 feet from any structure, with 35 feet of space from the next tree.
- Any trees under 30 feet need to be planted 10 feet from any structure at minimum— 15 feet from the next tree. 15 feet of distance should be respected for any driveways as well, 10 feet from utility poles, and 30 feet from any traffic intersections.
