Deadwooding Tree Trimming

It is beneficial to deadwood a tree for more reasons than just landscape maintenance. If you don’t treat rotting branches immediately, they can infect the tree’s trunk. Rotted branches also attract pests and invasive insects, which can harm surrounding vegetation. As a final point, storms and high winds often cause dead wood to break off. As a result of our deadwooding services, we can help you protect your home from bad weather.

Shrub Trimming

You can improve both your curb appeal and your plants’ health by trimming shrubs. Overgrown shrubs can gradually grow sickly if left unattended. It is also important to maintain shrubs so that their interior branches can receive sunlight and nutrients.

What Is the Difference Between Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning?

Gardening tools and methods for trimming and pruning vary depending on the time of year. Understanding the appropriate equipment, methods, and seasons to trim and prune is crucial for achieving the best results.

  1. The purpose of pruning is primarily to enhance the aesthetics of a tree and to relieve the stress caused by overgrowth.

  2. Prune fruit plants and flowers to maintain healthy growth and remove diseased branches. When you prune a tree, it also produces fruit the following year because spurs grow when you prune it.

Reasons You May Need to Trim or Prune Your Trees and Shrubs

Are your trees burdened with dead branches? Maybe pests have infested the trunk, bark, or branches of the tree. On the other hand, are you seeking ways to promote productive fruit blooms or enhance the aesthetics of your landscape? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we offer excellent trimming and pruning services to comprehensively address these concerns.

The Health of the Tree Trimming

Concerning the health of the tree, the weight of dead branches or decay may cause your tree to droop or appear sickly. Pruning the roots can strengthen them and foster healthy new growth. Furthermore, a tree or shrub can be trimmed to remove portions affected by disease, fungi, or pests. Ultimately, regenerating the health of your trees and shrubs involves exposing them to abundant sunlight and facilitating fresh air circulation.

Provide Clearance

Neglected trees with dead branches and excessive growth can present potential risks to nearby infrastructure. Over time, these trees may encroach upon neighboring properties, obstruct roadways and driveways, and even reach over fences and roofs, becoming entangled in power lines. When tree branches come into close proximity with telephone and power lines, the risk of outages and fires escalates significantly. Thankfully, our team of professional arborists is well-equipped to offer safe and effective solutions. We provide ample clearance to prevent any potential damage or inconvenience caused by overgrown trees, ensuring a harmonious environment for both you and your neighbors.

Improve Aesthetics

We can also shape your trees and shrubs in a way that encourages spectacular blooms and complements your property nicely. If you live near a lake, mountain range, or enjoy incredible views from your property, we can neatly trim trees to ensure a beautiful panorama.

Promote robust growth and prevent the potential spread of rot by promptly trimming and removing any diseased, injured, dying, infested, or dead branches from your trees. Additionally, acting swiftly to remove compromised segments will facilitate the healthy restoration of your trees and shrubs, ensuring their well-being in a timely manner.

Improve Structure

Trimming and pruning your trees can dramatically strengthen their structure. In addition to trimming and pruning for special effects, we can also cut for decorative purposes.

Our arborists have the formal training to employ various pruning techniques, including:

To achieve structural soundness, one must avoid pruning malpractices such as topping trees. Topping trees will make them weak and more susceptible to pest infestations.

Your Tree Crosses into Your Neighbor's Property

Avoid the hassle of tree encroachment onto neighboring properties by staying attentive to your landscaping. Ensure that your trees don’t cross property lines by enlisting the services of a professional arborist for regular trimming and pruning. By taking this proactive approach, you can prevent any potential disputes with your neighbors. Furthermore, proper maintenance can help mitigate the risk of branches breaking off or trees collapsing during high winds, reducing your liability for any damages that may occur.

How Much Does Tree Trimming Cost?

The cost of a tree trimming project is determined by various factors, such as the size and complexity of the job. Whether it involves removing hard-to-reach branches, grinding large stumps, or delicately pruning fruit trees, we assure you of top-notch work at competitive and fair prices.

Location and Accessibility

Costs for trees in challenging locations or hard-to-reach areas might slightly increase due to added labor and risks. Fortunately, we use cranes and bucket trucks in many locations to access tall points. Our experienced crews employ proven techniques to complete complex tasks efficiently and thoroughly.

Tree Height and Size

Trimming or pruning tall trees requires more time, labor, equipment, and involves higher hazards compared to smaller trees. If heavy-duty equipment or time-consuming safety measures are necessary, additional charges may apply. Nonetheless, we strive to provide pricing that suits your budget.

Number of Trees

The more trees that require trimming and pruning, the more labor and time the project will entail, impacting the overall cost.

Tree Health

Certain tree diseases can complicate and increase the risk of trimming. Trimming a damaged, unhealthy, or dead tree poses heightened risks, especially when climbing is involved. Considering extra safety precautions may affect the pricing, but we will always be transparent about these costs.


Trees infested with pests like ants, emerald ash borers, or woodpeckers may indicate rot and instability. However, dealing with infested trees can be risky for trimmers, potentially resulting in increased costs.

Client Specifications

We prioritize transparency in pricing and work with our customers to devise a plan that aligns with their financial situations and needs.

Our local crews comprise licensed and insured professionals with extensive industry experience.

Trimming the Tree/s Myself VS Hiring Professional Arborists

Trimming a tree in your backyard may seem like an easy task. However, without proper experience and training, even a small job can prove dangerous or fatal. Additionally, branches can fall in unpredictable ways and cause instant harm. Moreover, chainsaws can make sudden erratic movements and yank back toward your body. Furthermore, amateur trimming techniques can negatively affect a tree’s health and future growth. In an attempt to save money, DIY endeavors often end up causing significant damage and resulting in more expenses.
