If you are someone who enjoys competing in Christmas light contests and want to take your entry to the next level, consider hiring a professional tree trimming company to make the job easier. The company can handle every aspect of tree decorating to ensure that your Christmas light display is as large as it can possibly be. The following guide walks you through the best way to make the most of the tree trimming company.
Have the Trees Trimmed
The first thing you need to do is have the trees trimmed. You want to be sure that any dead or damaged limbs are removed and that the healthy limbs are shaped to create a visually appealing look. When the lights are strong, you do not want branches blocking the beautiful glow and want to be sure the lights create the shape you want them to create when they are strung. Shaping the tree limbs is essential if you want the display to look right.
Create a Design
Take the time to choose the layout for your display. You need to know how you want the trees to look and what colors you want displayed on each tree, if you do not want to use a mixture of colored lights on each tree.
Have the Lights Strung
Have the tree trimming company string the lights for you. They will already have all of the equipment needed to climb up and down the trees safely so it is best to let the professionals handle the stringing for you.
Test the Lights
Next, be sure to test the lights before you go any further in creating your holiday display. You need to be sure that they work properly and that no strands need to be replaced. If some are not lit, the tree trimming company can fix them before they leave.
Have the Wires Buried
Finally, bury the wires to the trees underground. This will give your display a finished look and allow people to walk on your lawn to see every detail of your display without risking tripping over the power cords as they walk in the grass. A flat shovel can be used to dig a slit in the ground and then the wires can simply be pushed into the slit.
Once the lights are strung and have been tested, you can create the rest of your light display in the yard. The entire display should be over-the-top, bold, and bright if you want a chance of beating out your competition.Share

After we moved into our house, we knew that something had to be done about our trees. The branches looked off-kilter, and we could tell that someone had pruned them incorrectly at one time or another. Unfortunately, we weren't really sure how to repair the damage. A family friend talked with us about hiring a professional tree trimmer, and so we called them the next day. The difference that they made was astounding. They removed dead branches, trimmed up the shape, and let more sunlight through. My blog is all about improving the look of your trees by hiring a professional.
