Fun and Harmless Ways to Decorate Your Trees

Trees are beautiful. From their shining green leaves to the stunning flowers or fruit they produce, there’s nothing as great as a tree to decorate your landscape. But, if you’re hoping to really make your yard pop, you can take the embellishing of your property a step further by sprucing up your trees with accessories.

Here are some of our favorite fun and harmless ways to decorate your trees. 

Bird Feeders 

Want to encourage the birds you see around your property to stay around? Hang a bird feeder from your tree! Depending on what species you have in your yard, you can get a variety of kinds that will feed all of your chirping friends. Don’t forget to all put out a hummingbird feeder to give some substance to the smaller species. 

Wind Chimes 

There’s nothing quite as calming as when a gentle breeze kicks up the leaves on your trees. What would make it even better is if you dangled some wind chimes from the branches. That way you’ll add some musical notes along with the gorgeous nature sounds. 

There are countless examples of wind chimes out there in all styles of art. If you love to craft, you can even make your own! A quick search will show many guides for how to build wind chimes, no matter what aesthetic you’re going for. 

Holiday Fun 

Of course, what would this list be if we didn’t talk about the best time of year to decorate trees: the holidays! Whether you’re stringing lights through the branches for Christmas or hanging a witch from the trunk during Halloween, we really encourage you to get creative, no matter the season. 

Don’t think you only have to decorate during the biggest holidays, either. Have fun during Memorial Day or St. Patrick’s Day too.

How Weather Can Impact Your Tree Removal

When it comes to getting a tree removed, lots of planning and logistics are involved. That all starts with reaching out to a professional like Premier Tree Solutions to assess your tree and your property for removal. 

A less commonly understood step, is assessing weather conditions on the day you’ve selected to have a tree removed. Storms, rain, and even wind can impact the tree removal process, so this factor is an extremely important one! Learn more below about how weather can impact your tree removal. 

What Kind of Weather Do I Need for Tree Removal? 

Unfortunately, storms, high winds, and even light rain usually means the tree removal process will have to be rescheduled. In most instances, a tree cannot be taken away unless the weather is very calm and mild. That means little to no rain, no wind, and certainly no storms or snow. 

Why? The answer points back to the tree removal process itself and those who do the hard work. Tree removal itself can be a dangerous process. Depending on the tree, this can mean people are scaling great heights to cut down sections of it at a time. A person cannot do that safely in stormy, windy, or rainy conditions.

That means the best weather for the tree removal process is a sunny or overcast calm day. If you wake up on your tree removal day and see that outside, you’ll be good to go. If not, you might need to reschedule. Those who are doing the removal process will certainly be in touch to let you know if things need to be moved.
