Tree Trimming and Pruning
To prune, or not to prune, that is the question? Although pruning and tree trimming is a vital part of a beautifully manicured yard, it’s not recommend if done improperly. Incorrect trimming can hurt or kill trees and shrubs. In fact, more trees are killed by improper pruning each year than pests. Our tree service division focuses on the right way to do things. Some call us a bunch of tree huggers, but who else would you want caring for your trees?
Pruning is the process of removing plant life from trees and shrubs that are no longer required, dead, no use to the plant, or could be a potential electrical or storm danger. A tree service technician can determine this for you. By removing these areas it allows the tree to use this additional energy to produce healthy flowers, fruit, limbs, and foliage. Properly trimmed trees and shrubs that are shaped to perfection are also beautiful addition to the landscape. In addition to having the proper experience, using the correct maintained tools is vital; our tree service technicians only use the best. Pruning tools include: pruning shears, lopping shears, combination pole saw pruner, pruning saw and hedge shears. A tree service technician will make sure blades are sharpened and the equipment is oiled properly.
You may have heard of “tree training.” This is a process that is much more efficient and more desirable way to shape and form trees. While pruning is used to remove plant life from a tree to correct or maintain shape and structure, tree training is a practice that directs tree growth. It’s better to direct tree growth with tree training than correcting the shape with pruning. Contact our tree service technician today to learn about this great service.
