Tree Trimming

Pruning

Tree trimming (pruning) is an important service because it affects the structural integrity, aesthetic appeal, and ultimately the life span of your tree. A regular tree trimming process is used to eliminate competing leaders, potential hazards, dead wood, and promote healthy growth.

When To Prune

The optimal time to prune a tree is when it is in its dormant stage. Trimming in the summer or winter months,or shortly afterwards, is highly recommended. Doing so will allow for bountiful spring growth. Pruning in the fall is not ideal and can lead to fungal infections, disease, and stunted growth. However, sometimes, in hazardous situations, there is the need for immediate trimming or removal. In these instances trimming in the off seasons should occur.

Reasons To Prune

Tree branches that are dead, dying, decaying, insect infested, or diseased can pose a considerable risk to ones property or person.

Trees have a mind of there own, and for that reason they can grown into places that cause obstruction. Obstructions of walkways, driveways, rooflines, power lines, can lead to hazardous situations.

Pruning allows a tree to develop better circulation. In short a trees circulatory system plays an integral role in the tree structure, growth, and transportation of food and energy. The stronger the circulatory system the stronger the tree.

A tree may simply be too big. Whether it is to large for its designated space, or just to large for your liking, it requires pruning. An oversized tree can lead to obstruction and loss of aesthetic appeal.

The appearance of a tree is crucial because after all they are suppose to beautify not uglify your property. If your tree looks hurt chances are it is, and this can lead loss in property value and potentially to hazards.
