Benefits of Regular Tree Trimming for Your Property

Tree trimming, also known as tree pruning, is the process of removing certain branches or parts of a tree to promote its health and growth. Trimming trees is an important aspect of tree care as it helps to prevent potential hazards such as falling branches, especially during storms or high winds. Additionally, trimming can improve your property’s overall appearance and aesthetic by shaping the tree to your desired look. It is important to have tree trimming carried out by a qualified professional to ensure that the job is done safely and effectively and to prevent any damage to the tree or surrounding areas. Regular tree maintenance is important for all types of trees, whether that be mature fruit trees, maple trees, or ever-greens.

Types of Tree Pruning

Maintenance Pruning

Completed to control branches that are growing towards or overhanging structures such as roofs, gutters, fence lines and power lines. When we use maintenance pruning we also aim to maintain the overall shape and health of the trees.

Formative & Structural Pruning

Formative pruning of your trees will ensure that your tree has the best chance to reach its full potential in terms of structure, form, canopy coverage and overall health. This includes removing or suppressing defects, such as included stems, crossing branches, heavy/overextended branches, co-dominant stems and epicormic growth.

Weight Reduction

This technique is carried out when the branches or stems of the tree are heavy and overextended. We recommend this corrective measure to reduce the risk of branch, stem and/or whole tree failure.

Canopy Thinning

Done by pruning of some of the smaller internal branches throughout the canopy. It is used to allow more sunlight penetration and to create a more open canopy. This is especially important for trees growing on sites with restricted space, or in an environment where you would like to have more sun reaching the area under the tree for plants or lawn.

Deadwood Removal and Hazardous Branch Removals

This involves the process of removing dead, dying and damaged branches to reduce the likelihood of branch failure. If hazardous branches are not removed, they can pose a safety risk to your family and property.

Canopy Reduction

Canopy reduction pruning reduces the overall size and spread of a tree’s canopy whilst retaining its natural shape. This type of pruning is useful for trees that are becoming too large for their environment, to reduce stress on branches and stems. This is also completed for overall aesthetic purposes.

Canopy Lifting

Done by removing or lifting the lowest branches of a tree. This can improve clearance for vehicles, pedestrians and houses, as well as improving the overall appearance of your trees.

Fruit Tree Pruning

The selective removal of branches improves fruit production, maintain tree shape, and control size. Pruning fruit trees involves removing dead, diseased, or damaged branches and encouraging new growth. It is important to prune fruit trees regularly to ensure a good crop of fruit and prevent the tree from becoming overgrown and difficult to manage.

FAQs about Tree Pruning and Trimming

Tree pruning is necessary for several reasons: it helps to maintain the health of the tree by removing dead or diseased branches, improves the tree's structure, enhances its aesthetic appeal, and can prevent potential hazards due to falling branches.

Typically, late winter or early spring is the best time to prune most trees because they're dormant and the risk of disease spread is minimal. However, certain species may require pruning at different times, which our arborists can advise upon.

The frequency of tree pruning and trimming depends on the type and health of the tree. However, as a general rule, most trees should be pruned every 3-5 years. We recommend consulting with our arborists to get a personalised schedule.
