Tree Trimming

Benefits of trimming trees

    Pruning helps control the size of the tree
  • it keeps the tree within bounds of things like buildings, plants and other trees
  • careful and selective limb pruning can help maintain the size, shape and structural integrity of your trees
    Trimming can improve the health of a tree
  • dead or damaged branches affect the health of a tree and weaken it
  • dead wooding allows the tree to put the energy and growth where it's needed
  • dead branches can cause decay of the trunk of a tree - pruning these limbs can prevent the spread of the decay
    Pruning can help to shape the tree
  • sometimes there is a desired form or shape, such as in topiary
  • some trees and shrubs can be grown against walls (espalier) or on a trellis - plants in this area that will espalier fairly easily include yaupon holly, magnolia, pyracantha,loquat and sea grape
    Pruning helps with the structural strength of the tree
  • it promotes good branch structure
  • helps to prevent limbs falling
  • having a tree with good structural integrity reduces the likelihood of damage during severe weather, such as hurricanes
