We all know that happy customers mean more business. One way to keep customers happy is to pay attention to the trees around your property. Take a few minutes and walk around your property and look at the trees. Do they invite customers into your business, or do they say you do not care about your business and customers?
Dead branches must be pruned from your trees. If dead branches stay on trees, they can drop and injure customers or drop on cars and you end up with an unhappy customer, plus you have to pay for the injuries and damages. Dead branches also invite insects that are attracted to the decomposing branches. Customers do not want to walk through clouds of insects when coming to your business. Plus, when a customer sees trees without the dead branches, they know you pay attention to details.
Pruning also shapes the trees, especially young trees. Taking off the lower branches allows the landscape below to receive light and grow. This creates a more attractive look for your business and entices customers to come to your business. Also, taking off the lower branches of tall trees lets customers rest under the trees and enjoy the shade on a hot day. This positive emotional feeling is then transferred to the thought of your business and you have a happier customer. Shaping the trees also creates a more uniform and tidy look to your landscape which invites customers into your business. Customers know that when a business cares about the details of landscaping, they care about the details of the business.
You can see why trees should be pruned and how pruning trees can create happy customers. But this does not mean you go out and try it yourself. If branches need to be removed and they are not removed properly, the wounds can provide access to diseases which can kill your trees. So, invest in your business and customers, contact us and hire a professional to come prune your trees and create happy customers.
