Tree Trimming & Pruning
Trimming/Pruning your trees will not only keep your trees looking great, but it also helps ensure safety and health of the trees around your home. Improper trimming and pruning services can and will cause harm to your trees. From weakening of branch structure to improper flush cuts that will eventually lead to cavities and interior rotting. Hiring a tree service that lacks proper certifications, training, and experience in tree branch cutting can bring great risk to the overall health of your property's foliage.
Trimming & pruning are two important tree maintenance tasks that should be done on a routine basis. While some people mistakenly consider these procedures the same, there are clear differences about them you should know about.
What is tree trimming?
Trimming involves removing excess branches to maintain regularity in shape and size for an aesthetically pleasing look. When you trim a plant, it causes the remaining foliage to grow faster and thicker than if the plant were untrimmed. Trimming is most often used to maintain the overall size of a tree or shrub.
What is pruning?
Pruning is the process of removing dead, diseased or damaged branches, as well as shaping and thinning out the plant. Pruning is done to improve the overall health, strength and appearance of the tree or shrub. It helps trees establish a strong structure for growth, which allows them to thrive. Pruning is done less often then trimming, as it usually needs to be done only every 2 to 3 years.
