Tree trimming has three primary effects:

    •    Health - By removing dead or diseased branches from your trees, fresh growth is allowed to take the place of the old branches. Clearing dead wood improves the image of your trees while letting more light through to your property.

    •    Beauty - Trees that are properly and consistently trimmed or pruned improve the look of your property. You may be surprised how much better a trimmed tree will look. Removing excess branches give the tree breathing space. Keeping your trees trimmed will prolong its life and keep it healthy and green.

   •    Safety - Besides promoting health and appearance, tree trimming reduces the risk of a tree being a safety threat. Dead branches become weak and are prone to breaking off. The larger the branch, the less safe your tree will be. Regular pruning prevents these branches from breaking off and falling. Reduce the risk of injury or damage from falling branches with proper tree trimming!

 Do You Need Tree Removal Service?

While trimming is recommended for living trees, trees that have died or have become a nuisance to you should be removed. Senske’s tree removal service provides a safe and quick solution. Trees that drop cones, leaves, or branches all over your yard can be unsightly or even dangerous. Trees that have shallow roots or have died can be easily blown over in a storm, risking serious damage to your property and endangering lives. If this is what you are looking for, we recommend getting tree removal services as soon as possible. Instead of tree trimming, you may want to consider tree removal service.

Trimming Trees in Coeur d’Alene, ID

There are several steps involved in professional tree trimming. The first step, is assessing the number of trees, size, and the current state of health. Any threats to the health of your trees will be diagnosed by our ISA certified arborists. The trimming process involves removing dead wood and lower branches to create more space. This process is called “elevating”. Typically, our ISA certified arborists will remove dead branches and clear, or elevate, low hanging branches to make space around the trunk. Senske’s certified arborists can also reduce the height and size of your trees. As experts, our certified arborists avoid a harmful practice known as “topping”. Topping is a method of cutting limbs that damages and traumatizes trees. Topping could cause permanent damage, deformation, or even death. While we will never top your trees, Senske’s certified arborists will trim and prune branches only in a way that promotes healthy growth. 


Trimming Different Tree Species in Coeur d’Alene, ID

Senske’s ISA certified arborists approach any job with confidence no matter the species of tree. From pines, to oaks, fruit trees, and more, our certified arborists are prepared. There are both good and bad times to trim. We recommend winter as the best time to trim. Because of the cold, most trees will be dormant during this time, which allows branch trimming without inhibiting growth.

In order to prune fruit trees, certified arborists will carefully remove branches for optimal sunlight exposure, but as not to leave a tree vulnerable during cold weather. When flowering fruit trees’ flowers begin to fade, this is a good indication that it is time to prune. Fruit trees are often sensitive to the time of year. Pruning at the wrong time may leave them open to risk of infection. In mid-summer, plum trees should be pruned. Plum trees pruned during another season risk infection from silver leaf disease.

In contrast, apple trees should be trimmed in spring or summer. A common apple tree disease is called fireblight. If an apple tree is pruned outside of spring or summer, it risks contracting this disease. Fruit trees need trimming for a healthy harvest and to promote long-term health.

Non-fruit trees, such as oak also benefit from timely trimming. We recommend trimming oak trees before April or after October. Pruning an oak tree during warmer seasons put them at risk of coming down with oak wilt disease.

Pine trees are typically heartier than other trees, however, they still greatly benefit from pruning. The best times to prune are from winter to early summer. Like pines, aspens are dormant during winter, making it the perfect time to prune. Damaged limbs should be removed immediately as they leave the tree vulnerable to infection if left alone.
