Growing Trees in Pots: Tips for Miniature Trees

Two situations in which a gardening enthusiast should have their tree cut down

by Julius Manninen

If you're a gardening enthusiast and you have a tree in your garden, here are two examples of situations in which it might be wise to have that tree felled by an employee from one of your local tree removal businesses.

The tree's roots have invaded your flowerbeds

If you have a number of beautiful and well-tended flowerbeds which have been invaded by the roots of your tree, then it may be best to remove that tree. The reason for this is as follows; the presence of tree roots in the flowerbeds will affect both the health and the appearance of the flowers in this area of your garden.

For example, when these growing roots pass through the soil in which the flowers are located, they may partially uproot the flowers. Additionally, the tree roots may absorb the moisture and nutrients from the soil in the flowerbeds, which may, in turn, affect the flowers' ability to survive (as they will not have access to the water and nutrients that they require).

As such, if you value your flowerbeds and want to keep the flowers in this part of your garden in good condition for as long as possible, then removing the tree may be the best course of action.

The branches of the trees are landing on and damaging your plants

During periods of heavy winds, the outer branches of a tree may snap off. This may occur with greater frequency if the tree's branches have been weakened as a result of the presence of a fungal or bacterial infection. If both twigs and heavy branches fall off your tree quite regularly, they may end up landing on and then damaging the delicate leaves and stems of any plants and flowers that you have potted or planted nearby.

If this happens, these plants and flowers may not survive and you may then have to spend your time and money purchasing and planting replacements. Furthermore, these new purchases are likely to sustain the same damage in the future if the tree is not removed.

In this situation, having the tree felled by a tree removalist is probably the simplest long-term solution. Doing this will ensure that any replacement plants and flowers you buy won't suffer the same fate as their predecessors and will thus spare you the expense and the inconvenience of having to replace them again later down the line.
