Tree Trimming, Pruning & Disease Management – There are many reasons for pruning and trimming trees. We live and work amongst trees every day. It is important to manage the risks associated with daily interactions with trees. Managing tree growth can deter dangerous situations at home or at your place of work.
• Maintenance pruning/trimming is needed when trees are too close to houses, electrical or utility lines, hanging over parking lots, or have dead or diseased limbs. This type of pruning is done every 2 to 3 years.
• Structural pruning/trimming is done while the tree is young and will ensure a healthy, strong crown. Young tree pruning corrects co-dominant leaders, weak angels of branch attachment, and gives the tree a much better chance of surviving storm damage later on in life.
• Canopy thinning allows sunlight to penetrate the interior of the tree which will help to keep the tree alive. Thinning will also increase the airflow to the tree to prevent diseases.
• Pruning/Trimming trees for aesthetic purposes can drastically improve the beauty and value of your property.
