This is a picture of a tree trimming service.

Tree trimming or pruning has several benefits that help to keep your trees looking their best. Tree trimming is a practice that should be done regularly in order to maintain the health of your trees throughout the seasons. Not only does it keep them groomed, but it deters potential diseases or infestations from accumulating in your trees and it removes all debris that could have potentially built up as well.

Pruning

Tree trimming or pruning helps remove old or decaying debris from building up in your tree branches. Since you likely can’t remove it all by yourself, it is best to enlist the help of professional arborists to do so. Pruning does not cut the branches of your trees down, but rather grooms them to promote healthy growth. Pruning encompasses the removal of excess twigs, branches, leaves, and flowers that have accumulated over time. Any residual mess that has occurred during pruning will be cleaned up by our team before departing the site of our project.

Timing

The timing of tree trimming is important to ensure that you get the maximum benefits from pruning. We often recommend that tree inspection be done after all of its leaves have fallen, which could be anytime between late Fall and early Winter. It is best to have them pruned before the trees begin to freeze or temperatures drop, to avoid a messier cleanup or more hassle. Another great time to have your trees pruned is before Spring in order to promote new potential growth for the upcoming season.

Longevity

If your trees are regularly pruned, you can be guaranteed longer-lasting, beautiful trees. Trees tend to accumulate outdoor debris within their branches and it can often go unnoticed, if not addressed by a professional with the right tools and training. Therefore, it is crucial to have your trees trimmed in order to keep them healthy in between seasons. When trees are pruned often, they are also able to combat potential disease and infestations, which can lead to premature decay and deterioration of your trees.

Appearance

Pruning your trees helps to also maintain their appearance and functionality. Those with unpruned trees that extend beyond their management points run the risk of having messy-looking lawns with excess debris buildup on the roof or in the gutters. Not only do your trees need to be groomed to keep themselves looking clean and healthy, but they also impact the way your home’s exterior looks. Larger bundles of leaves and twigs that accumulate on the roof or in the gutters prevents your home’s infrastructure from performing its purpose with ease and compromises the integrity of such structures. Clogged gutters can lead to flooding or erosion, which can be more damaging to your house than expected. We encourage our clients to consistently work pruning into their landscaping routines with the help of professionals. Only then, will you be able to have a beautiful trees that compliment the landscape of your home’s lawn and exterior.
