Common Commercial Property Tree Care Mistakes
Common Tree Care Mistakes that Affect Curb Appeal of Commercial Properties
It is quite common for people to make decisions on the basis of first impressions; though it would likely be more advantageous and infinitely more accurate to invest some time in gathering detailed information and background before formulating an opinion or position, many individuals still prefer to make judgements in what amounts to the blink of an eye.
There is of course inherent risks in such a practice, typified by such common expressions as ‘appearances can be deceiving’ and ‘one should not judge a book by its cover’. But it is also likely that the habitual application of this first-impressions syndrome will remain a part of society for generations to come; after all, it is easier to make decisions based on personal bias and perception rather than solid evidence and facts.
So what does all of this mean for commercial property managers and owners? Basically, it is the affirmation, or perhaps the reaffirmation, that potential customers, tenants, and partners will often associate the exterior appearance of a commercial property with the quality of the products, services, or facilities housed within; in other words, if the outside is shabby or unkempt, people may choose to take their respective business elsewhere.
Consequently, it is imperative that commercial properties be maintained in a fashion that is conducive to attracting patrons etc. to the premises instead of turning them off, in a manner of speaking. And one of the landscaping features that can influence a person’s first impression is the health of any trees; people might not see a cracked sidewalk or a stained window ledge from the street, but they can clearly tell how healthy the trees are on a commercial property from that vantage point.
There are several factors that can negatively affect tree health and thus the curb appeal of a commercial property. And despite the best of intentions to create, maintain, and/or enhance this appeal, here are the most common tree care mistakes made by commercial property owners/managers:
- Poor or improper pruning – can cause permanent injury to trees
- Incorrect planting – too deep into the ground or too close together
- Excessive mulch – it may look impressive, but it can harm tree bark
- Ineffective watering – too much or not enough for the types of trees
- Careless operation of machinery – can result in wounds and scarring
