What is Tree Trimming?
You’ve probably heard of tree trimming at one time or another, but what exactly does this process involve? In simple terms, tree trimming is where an arborist trims the structure of the tree to promote better growth. Generally speaking, the focus is mainly on removing green shoots, which helps to encourage healthier growth across the tree’s structure. This process really needs to be carried out at specific times for it to be effective, and these might vary depending on the species of the tree. Our arborists will make sure that all of these details are taken care of to ensure no mistakes are made.
The primary reason to invest in this particular tree service is to help your tree flourish and grow to its full potential. Trees that experience well-timed and careful tree trimming interventions will experience stronger growth across the entire tree system – and this will even cause higher fruit and flower production during those growth periods. Many people think that because you’re cutting parts of the tree away during this process, that it’s a destructive procedure – but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you care about the long term wellbeing of your tree, this is an absolute must.
To successfully carry out effective tree trimming services, the timing needs to be done right. This isn’t the kind of work that you can just schedule for a random day, and hope that results follow – each kind of tree requires tailored treatment to guarantee the best possible outcome. All of our arborists recognize how often to carry out tree trimming, and when in the year this is most effective. Generally speaking, tree trimming should happen twice a year – but there is no one-size-fits-all rule. Consult with our arborists regarding the species of tree that you want treated to get a clearer idea on what needs to happen.
One of the less-heralded benefits that is available when you decide to invest in tree trimming is the positive effect it can have on your tree’s aesthetic. We try to enhance the natural shape of the tree when we’re carrying out this work, rather than manicure it into a less natural shape. Not only is this more attractive, but it is better for the health of the tree.
