Tree trimming and pruning are essential to maintaining healthy trees. Trimming and pruning support three goals for our clients’ trees:

  • Keeping the tree health
  • Encouraging growth
  • Maintaining the aesthetic beauty

Our arborists are trained to manage all of our trimming and pruning to these goals. Otherwise, sloppy or unprofessional tree trimming and pruning can permanently damage a tree or even ultimately kill it. For that reason our training is focused on identifying flaws and defects in the tree within the framework of the biology that makes the tree healthy and beautiful.  Beyond the science of a healthy tree we always consider it’s beauty and work to remove dead branches and other problem areas in a way that allows the tree to maintain it’s best and full shape.

These are some of the typical times you should consider calling for a professional tree trimmer:

  • The tree is close to powerlines and puts them at risk.
  • Branches of the tree are touching your home or other structures or have grown over them.
  • You can see dead branches hanging in the tree.
  • You have not had your trees inspected and diagnosed in the last three years.
  • You have a vision for altering the shape of your tree

When to Trim & Prune

The best time to trim and prune trees is after the leaves change color in the fall and new growth starts in the spring.  So it is best to schedule your tree trimming maintenance before the spring hits. Also, keep in mind that most trees remain healthiest when they are kept on a three to five year cycle for trimming. But the factors to think about when scheduling pruning and trimming are:

  • Size of the tree
  • Health of the tree

The reason that between fall and spring is the best time to prune and trim trees is because they go dormant and take a rest from growing. Waiting for new growth to start before pruning can harm the long term health and growth potential of the tree.

During the dormant and colder seasons trees are less susceptible to diseases, pests, infectious diseases and fungi. Also, after leaves change and fall it is easier to manage being in a tree and it lowers the risk of removing branches and property damage.

Pruning Sealers

We want our clients to be aware of a practice in the industry where after trimming people will put a “sealer” on the cut in the tree. Sometimes the product is referred to as pruning paint. Claims are made that sealers help the health of the tree but we do not believe this is the case. But frequently these sealers have petroleum products in them. There are other sealers which are natural but we also caution against them.

The University of Arizona [LINK] has research that shows that any sealer is harmful to the long-term growth of the tree. Trees were created to heal and grow on their own and any sealer limits that natural process. The new wood that starts to grow back will naturally prevent pests and diseases from attacking the tree.

Tree types that require more frequent inspection and pruning include:

  • Maple
  • Birch
  • Redbud
  • Yellowwood
  • Dogwood
  • Ash
  • Crapemyrtle
  • Elm
  • Crabapple
  • Willow
