Tree Service and Tree Trimming

You will want to get your trees cut if you are trimming dead branches, trying to keep a nice shape, and/or need to thin out trees to increase light. You will want to have routine maintenance done to your trees. You will want to make sure that when you prune your trees that you don’t have too much trimmed at once, because it can cause stress to the tree and reduce the growth. You will also want to trim your trees if there are safety issues – branches too close to wires or too close to the house.

Tree Trimming is one of the most common requested tree services. If your property is on a woods, your trees get trimmed by mother nature. But if you are like the rest of us, keeping your home’s landscape up to par requires a tree service company to maintain their look. That is because pruning or trimming has to be done by someone that understands trees. Permanent damage can occur or even kill a tree if you try to trim it yourself without the property knowledge.

Most trees need to be trimmed before Spring. Most of your trees growth takes place in Spring. However, you will need to understand what type of tree you have. Birches and maples can “bleed” if they are trimmed to early. If you have a diseased tree, trimming them can spread when cutting out the wounds. You will want to be sure to have an arborist check the health of your tree before they start cutting.

You will want to make sure to trim your tree just outside the branch collar. The branch collar contains branch tissue and should not be damaged or removed. You will want to cut just beyond the collar if the trunk collar has grown out on a dead limb. If you are removing large limbs, you will want to make an under cut about 15 to 18 inches where the limb attaches. A second cut above or a few inches down the limb should be make to remove it.

No matter if you want to trim your trees, remove a tree or plant a new one, you will want to consult an arborist. Your local tree service company will suggest the type of maintenance that needs to be done to improve the appearance, safety and health of your trees. They really are the best option unless you have a lot of knowledge and experience in growing and in tree trimming.
