Anxious About Your Tree Project in Rockville?

Rockville, VA is unique in the fact that it has been named after postmasters. William Rock was the early 19th-century postmaster after whom it derives its current name. Interestingly, before that, Rockville was called Dentonsville, named after Allen Denton. This was yet another postmaster. He was related to a colonial settler known as Thomas Denton. His old tavern still exists currently as “Denton’s Tavern” but is now a private residence.

The story of Rockville is not very different from the life of a tree, which goes through different stages. Evidently, for you to succeed in your tree planting project, you’ll benefit from various tree services. Before we dive into those details, find out more about the life cycle of a tree in the following post:

How seeds become trees

Sprout (germination)

Once the seed has found the right conditions, it needs to secure itself. The first root breaks through the seed, anchoring it and taking in water for the developing plant. The next stage in germination is the emergence of the embryonic shoot.

The shoot pushes up through the soil, with the shoot leaves either poking above ground or rotting underneath as the rest of the shoot grows above.


A shoot becomes a seedling when it is above ground. This stage is when trees are most at risk from diseases and damage… Read more at Woodland Trust…

Whether you are planning to have a tree project for domestic or commercial purposes, knowing what to expect throughout the life of a tree is important. You’ll have a clear plan of when-to-do-what to ensure your trees grow healthy.

Tree Trimming

You can be sure you’ll enjoy watching your tree developing from seedling to a fully mature tree. It’s almost like seeing a baby start to crawl, walk, and eventually start running. Even so, as your tree grows, your natural instinct will be to let it grow without any “interference”. After all, if it was in the forest, it would grow without your intervention, right? Find out what trees need in the following post:

Trimming and pruning are excellent aspects of landscaping services. While tree trimming is essentially applied to shrubs and hedges, pruning is meant for trees and shrubs. Both tree services are performed at different times using different equipment to make the garden aesthetic and healthy.

Trimming vs. Pruning

Tree pruning is performed in order to protect the tree or shrub while trimming is performed to ensure the perfect growth of the shrub or hedge. Tree trimming service on the other hand is done to remove overgrown bushes which prevent the shrub from receiving enough moisture and light. Tree pruning service involves removal of dead or loose or infected branches so that the shrub can flourish properly. It is also done to give a particular shape to the shrub for aesthetic purposes.

With tree trimming, you stand to gain a lot more than you imagine. The following post outlines some of the benefits you’ll enjoy:

1. Prevents Personal Injuries

Falling tree branches can pose a threat to your personal health. Left untended, a tree’s limbs can grow excessively, leading to falling branches. If you want to keep this from happening, regular tree pruning will safely monitor the growth of tree limbs.

2. Improves Tree Health

All trees experience the effects of aging and infection. Branches with disease pose health risks for the rest of a tree. As with point 1, pruning trees can allow for a healthy life cycle from one tree to the next.

Furthermore, trimming your trees before spring can make a major difference. If you’ve taken care of your tree before winter, it will have a better chance of healthy regrowth during the following seasons. Read more at AAA Tree Experts…
