If you have trees on your property, you’ve probably heard someone say that you should be pruning your trees. As an arborist company for over 70 years, Senske Services knows a thing or two about trees, and we encourage you to take a closer look at the many benefits of tree trimming or pruning.
About Tree Trimming and Pruning
What is Tree Trimming exactly? Before we discuss the benefits of tree trimming, let’s define what it means. Pruning is more than cutting branches off, when we discuss pruning, we mean the specialized method used by professional arborists. Tree care experts use trimmers and equipment designed to cleanly prune trees that won’t leave lasting damage to these majestic plants. They also know how to safely remove tree branches or even the whole tree itself without putting your property or safety at risk.
The Benefits of Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning
Arborists trim trees in a particular way that does not damage the tree, but instead encourages healthier growth over time. Arborists look for diseased or dead limbs that should be removed for the sake of the tree’s health and the safety of those who may be nearby. Dead or weakened branches put people at risk because of the chance that they may break and fall when you least expect it.
Lastly, trees tend to grow where they want, even if that means growing up against your house, a fence, or even power lines. Tree pruning can help guide wayward branches away from obstruction and give your tree an overall more pleasing appearance.
When Should You Prune Your Trees?
A common recommendation on when to prune your trees is late fall or winter when most trees are dormant. However, there may be times when you need to perform an emergency branch removal. Another thing to keep in mind, is that if you have not pruned or trimmed your tree in a few years, you should have it done sooner than later. Really, anytime of the year is typically fine if trimming is done correctly.
