Whether the residential or commercial property is in question, the ultimate source of beauty in its exterior are trees. Something is charming in a yard that is full of trees. The ambiance makes people calm and like one with nature.
But, in order for such feelings to exist, one must take basic care of these non-moving “creatures”, because if they are looking unpleasant you will hardly feel a thing. They need to be groomed “from head till toe”. Not only that you are making them presentable, but there are certain by-products that people do not even think about that can come out as a result. We are going to talk about them a bit today.
A Word Of Advice
Tree trimming is by many homeowners considered a practice that can be listed as a DIY. But keep in mind that if you do not have the equipment or are not as skillful, and you are new to this experience, it is not as safe to do it yourself. You can call anyone that offers a Tree Trimming Service, and they can take care of your yard. If you, however, have all of the tools that are needed to do the work, educate yourself first, and watch some tutorials on what would be the best and safest tactics to start with that particular plant arrangement.
The Bark, The Trunk, The Branch
Chain saws often come to mind when someone thinks of “tree trimming equipment”. There are different types. There are gas-powered ones and are fueled with gas and oil mix that have been popular for a while as well as the electric ones. Either way, if the tree was sickly and you had to get rid of it in order to stop the disease spreading to other trees, there are potential by-products that can be made. Naturally, it would depend on a tree species, but its branches, bark, the trunk, or insides can be turned into:
- Wine Corks
- Chewing Gum
- Car Wax
- Latex Rubber Gloves
- Hair Dye
Now, let us say that you have taken all the branches out that were excess and were running the esthetic and health of your favorite tree. So, what now?
If you wonder how to get rid of them, instead of tying them in bundles, and cutting them up first in small pieces, you could use a wood chipper and make mulch. It is popular nowadays, especially since you can combine it with an eco-lifestyle and that way, you can get a by-product on your own. By some, it is appraised as eco-friendly and for that lifestyle that more and more people lean towards, that is perfect.
Trees are sources of many products. It has been like that throughout history, not only nowadays. Instead of deciding to toss away parts of the tree that we at first might consider are useless, we should rethink our actions. As we have seen, there are many potential and unexpected by-products that we can receive from them. They can be made into something useful besides being an object of beauty that we admire.
