Much like tree removal, tree trimming is a service that is chronically overlooked. A lot of our clients attempt to take on the job of trimming as they perceive it to be an easy task. While this is true in certain circumstances, one should never underestimate the art of tree trimming and the lasting implications that a job gone wrong can have. Tree trimming is a unique science and there are rules and recommendations that you should follow when you attempt to trim your trees. It’s important to remember that you should aim to achieve balance and homeostasis in your trees. You do not want your trees to be bogged down by one side. Trees need proper energy flow to stay alive and promote healthy growth. Senselessly trimming a tree will usually enact just the opposite.
A reputable tree service will never cut corners, and will furthermore never go in blind without a game plan. Certain species require a different level of care when it comes to trimming. Some trees may not need a comprehensive trim job whatsoever. A big problem that amateurs run into is clipping far too much off of a tree. It’s okay to cut back unnecessary and unruly branches, but you don’t want to aim for complete removal. Complete removal can have long-term consequences for most trees.
We encourage all of our clients to get on a tree trimming schedule to promote overall health. The more often that you can give your trees a healthy trim, the better their health will be. Healthier trees can also provide benefits for the plant life surrounding them. Trees that are growing in unusual patterns are often the culprits for uneven grass growth. Bad grass health is a problem we see consistently occurring in many lawns. With regular cuts, you will no longer have to worry about your tree inhibiting proper growth.
Sometimes our clients don’t need such an intensive trimming program. Pruning is a worthwhile investment for those who need something a bit less intensive. Pruning is essentially a cousin to trimming, providing property owners with a lot of the same benefits at a fraction of the cost. Pruning is ideal for those who don’t have a lot of trees or a lot of large trees. Pruning is still incredibly effective for those who need simple upkeep for their trees.
