We generally trim trees for 3 reason for appearance, safety or health.
1. Appearance Trimming and Pruning a tree can make it look much better and help it keep a nice shape. While we don’t recommend trying to force a tree into an unnatural shape, we do believe in proper shaping to maximize the trees natural build. We want to make it look it’s best without doing any unneeded damage to the tree.
2. Safety We make sure that any dead or broken branches and limbs are removed so that there is not a safety issue. We want to be sure there is no danger to power lines or structures from damaged or weak branches or limbs.
3. Tree Health Making sure your tree is trimmed can greatly improve the overall tree health. It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by pruning away affected areas. Trimming can also assist in keeping branches from interfering with each other and increasing airflow to the tree.
