Tree trimming is the most common tree maintenance procedure. A lthough some trees grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their safety and aesthetics. Proper tree trimming and pruning improves the health and appearance of trees, prolongs life within the tree and encourages thriving lawn growth beneath it. It can often improve your property’s image and value.
Through trimming, dead, dying or diseased wood is removed, shape is enhanced, and limbs can be raised to clear height. Someone without this experience and training could actually damage the tree, jeopardizing its future health. Since each cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree, no branch should be removed without a reason. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the life of the tree, or worse, shorten the tree’s life.
