Frequently Asked Questions

What types of tree pruning are available?
The main types of tree pruning include crown thinning and crown raising. Crown thinning maintains the original shape of the tree while removing excess branches, while crown raising involves removing branches lower down. This is useful if your trees have low-hanging branches and you need to move them further away from your property or the ground.
 What is the best time of year for tree trimming?
The most popular time of year for pruning trees is when they are dormant between February and March, but don’t despair if you’ve left it until the summer months to schedule a tree trimming. Pruning after trees have completed their seasonal growth allows you to get a much clearer view of branches that are too heavy or low and need removing.
Can trimming restore an unhealthy tree?
Even if your tree looks lifeless, it might not be too late to save it. Cutting off dead or weak branches can help restore vitality by allowing healthy parts of the tree easier access to water and sunlight. One of the great things about hiring a professional tree pruning service is that they can accurately assess the health of your tree and can provide a removal service for you if it can’t be rescued.
What are the benefits of tree pruning?
Tree trimming has obvious aesthetic benefits for your property, but it also helps to keep trees healthy and reduces the risk of falling branches. If you have fruit trees, pruning can improve the size of your crop, while newly planted trees can also benefit from a trimming by helping them to grow into the right shape.
