Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming

People everywhere love to see trees and their beauty. Proper care is essential to make a tree last. A well-maintained tree will keep its beauty for many years, but the care given to the tree determines its shape and strength, and ultimately, how long the tree lasts. Trimming is the most critical thing anyone can do for a tree. It sounds simple, but many people shy away from it because it sounds tedious and downright dangerous on the surface.

The truth is, tree trimming is the type of work that requires a certain amount of skill that uses the latest safety techniques and gear. When safety measures are adhered to, pruning or trimming back overgrown trees isn’t any more dangerous than other types of similar work. The key is learning about and following all recommended safety precautions.

Types of Trimming

Dead Pruning, also known as crown cleaning, is the most basic trimming type involving the removal of dead branches intended to improve the tree’s overall appearance.

A good maintenance tactic to keep in mind is carefully monitoring when dead branches fall and remove them immediately. Early removal helps minimize injury or damage to surrounding property. Also, it helps prevent sick or diseased branches from infecting others, while at the same time improving the aesthetics of the tree.

Crown Thinning allows more light and air into the tree after removing weak secondary branches to create a balanced crown, without changing its appearance or size. In addition to allowing more light through the canopy, removing dead or weakened limbs also helps reduce the weight of heavy branches. Crown thinning is another maintenance step to include your regular care schedule.

Crown Lifting means removing or cutting off the lower branches of the tree crown to trim down the larger limbs’ mass. Crown lifting helps with clearing sidewalks and roads, including those that might interfere with your home, too.

For younger trees, crown lifting is effective and recommended instead of on mature trees because removing limbs could introduce advanced decaying in the area and lead to long-term issues.

Crown Reduction lowers the tree’s overall height because the focus is on removing terminal branches to preserve the main limb. Trained personnel are qualified to perform this type of tree trimming because they understand the tree growth pattern. Proper crown reduction allows the tree to thrive later, and dramatically lowers the risk of decaying after pruning.

Pollarding involves removing the upper branches and leaving a framework of the secondary branches of the main stem. It promotes the growth of a dense head of foliage and branches. Pollarding starts when the tree is young and then performed at regular intervals over the tree’s life.

Some Benefits of Tree Trimming

Trimming the trees on your property has immense benefits for the trees and you. The most significant benefit is that it improves your trees’ overall health, and that’s essential to their long-term health.

When the trees get more sunlight because of timely Pruning, the process of photosynthesis occurs more often. Photosynthesis uses sunlight to allow organisms to transform the sun’s energy into chemical energy. The amount of photosynthesis that occurs depends entirely on the sun reaching the leaves on the tree. Trimming the higher branches exposes lower branches and enhancing photosynthesis.

Regular trimming puts you up close to the trees, making disease detection more straightforward and more effective. You can report the disease early to a specialist and ensure timely attention to the issue. As you’re trimming your tree, you can improve its appearance, too.
