Deadwooding in Maryland

Appalachian Tree Service realizes deadwooding is an important maintenance procedure for both safety and tree health. Deadwooding is the removal of dead, diseased, broken or dying branches on a tree. Removing the dead or diseased areas of the tree improves the overall health of the tree by increasing the amount of light and air circulation within the tree canopy. It also reinforces the tree’s integrity therefore reducing the vulnerability to pests, disease and fungi.

Deadwooding prevents the risk of dead branches falling on people or damaging property. Public areas such as parks, parking lots, pathways and roads are high injury risk areas and require regular deadwooding services. Tree branches over homes and other buildings is another concern. Storms can dislodge dead or dying limbs causing injury or damage to these structures or their occupants. Appalachian Tree Service’s highly skilled tree experts can remove these deadwood hazards and create a safe, healthy tree environment.
