Benefits of Tree Trimming

Why is tree trimming important? Trees add beauty and shade to our yards and land - tree trimming is important to keep your trees healthy and happy.

Types of Tree Trimming

There are four main types of tree trimming:

  • Crown Reduction Trimming - removal of major branches - this should only be done when there is significant storm damage or when branches interfere with power lines. No more than a third of the tree’s total crown should be removed

  • Fine Pruning – this is removing small limbs to improve the tree’s overall appearance

  • Hazard Trimming – this trimming is done for tree safety

  • Standard Pruning – this is done to enhance the tree’s branch structure

Benefits of Tree Trimming

Some benefits of tree trimming and pruning:

  • Newly planted trees should be trimmed to compensate for root loss

  • Proper trimming improves tree health by eliminating dead or dying branches

  • The pruning of fruit trees will improve the size and quantity of the fruit

  • Tree trimming can improve your property’s view

  • Tree trimming will increase sun exposure and circulation around the tree

  • Trimming improves the overall appearance and structure of the tree, which will stop the development of broad or weak branches
