The Key To Healthy Trees

News And Advice From The Leading Thousand Oaks Tree Trimming Company

If you enjoy hiking around our local trails in the Conejo Valley, you’ll notice that the ground around our beautiful oak trees is generally a wonderful carpet of organic material. Broken up leaves and twigs form a blanket over the top layer of soil. If you ever reach down to grab a handful of that material, you’ll also notice it’s loaded with organisms such as earthworms and tiny roundworms called nematodes. These organisms serve a useful purpose: they break up organic materials so that they can be absorbed back into the soil.

Are Your Trees Teenagers Or Middle-Age?

If you purchased or leased your home “pre-loved” (as the Realtors like to say), then you may be wondering how old the trees in your yard are. After all, you didn’t plant them and you can’t be sure they were plated the same your year your home was built.

So, here are some tips for figuring out whether your trees are teenagers or entering middle age. First, realize that trees generally reach a maximum height and spread and then stop growing too dramatically. They do have a tell, though — their trunk size.
