There are a few reasons you may want (or need) to trim a tree. Give us a call now so we can help you decide what is best for your property, and the health of your trees.
Pruning is the process of removing limbs on a tree, and is done to maintain the health of the specimen, reduce its size if your tree is growing past city restrictions or towards structures, or can be simply aesthetic, although, even aesthetic pruning provides benefits to your trees health.
Fine pruning, or trimming to improve the look of your tree creates an aesthetically pleasing shape, and helps the tree overcome factors of the environment, which have affected its appearance. Some of these factors include erratic wind patterns, structures that may be redirecting growth, and uneven light sources caused by other trees in your yard, or buildings on your property.
Maintaining a regular fine pruning schedule is extremely beneficial to your trees, and necessary to achieve the desired look you have in mind for your yard. Trimming can happen as frequently as twice a year, and as infrequently as once every other year. Although you will see results and improvement in your trees growth from a regular trimming schedule, it usually takes about 3 years of scheduled maintenance before the best possible growth pattern for your particular tree is achieved.

Crown thinning is the process of removing branches in a tree that is suffering from overcrowding. Its purpose is not to change the shape of the tree, but to selectively remove branches for the greater health of the rest of the tree. Thinning "opens the tree up" so more light can penetrate the canopy, and produce healthier foliage.
Crown reduction is a trimming technique used for trees that are growing too tall for the area they are in. Usually this type of pruning is only necessary when a particular tree is growing into power lines, or other structures, or if the tree is violating an HOA or City policy.
Sapling trimming is for people who want to train their tree to grow a proper branch pattern from the start of their life in your yard. Proper branch architecture allows your trees to grow to their full potential, and cuts down on the need for invasive maintenance, or potential hazards for years to come.
