We have ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborists on staff who are knowledgeable and trained to give your trees perfect care. Most often, tree trimming and tree pruning in the coldest of winter is the most effective. Although, there are several factors to consider when the “right time” is: the age of the tree, the type of the tree, the care it might not have gotten in the past, etc. With our experienced arborists, we can evaluate each unique situation and create a plan. You can rest easy with healthy, safe and beautiful trees year around. Contact us for a free estimate or call us (877) 944-4007.
Our Tree Pruning Services Include All That Your Trees May Need
Removing excess branches and deadwood involves tree maintenance such as fine tree pruning to shape the look, elevating (removing lower branches for clearance), and reduction of size and height of the tree.
As tree experts, we pay close attention to strategically trimming tree branches back. There is a wrong way to trim trees called “topping” that makes the tree deformed, which creates dangerous windsail, permanent damage or even death of the tree. Our tree work focuses on keeping the tree looking balanced, natural, and healthy.
Before we are finished, our tree cutting service includes making sure we dispose of all the cut branches. You won’t have to lift a finger. We are available to residential and commercial customers that are in need of tree pruning services.
Tree Trimming Needs by Tree Species
With so many types of trees, there are different needs to be met in every situation that our expert arborists can confidently handle. In general, it’s best to prune during dormancy after the coldest part of winter has passed.
It’s important to prune fruit trees to be sure light is shed on the fruit for a great harvest, although too much pruning can lead to winter injury. Flowering fruit trees need pruning right after the flowers begin to fade. In general, winter is the smart time to prune. For example, when pruning a peach tree, it’s easier to see its shape without the blossoms in this season, and the sap isn’t running through the branches.
Timing can be crucial to pruning fruit trees. Plum tree pruning should be done mid-summer because they are susceptible to an infection called “silver leaf disease”. Pruning apple trees in the spring or summer can leave them open to the bacterial disease called “fireblight”.
Each type of apple tree needs different care to get the best harvest. Overgrown apple trees need special attention and need the help of a professional. Young apple trees and dwarf apple trees may not need as much pruning as old apple trees. Then there are crab apple trees that are mostly grown for their flowers as their small apples are sour!
Oak tree pruning relies heavily on timing, if pruned from April to October they can get “oak wilt disease”. When it comes to pruning pine trees, timing isn’t as important but it helps to avoid late summer and early fall. It is best to prune while they are dormant (the same goes when pruning aspen trees). If there is any sort of unexpected damage, they should be pruned immediately. There is bleeding when sap begins to flow after pruning maple trees, but it stops after the tree leafs out.
