Health - Trees should be trimmed or pruned somewhat regularly in order to keep them in the best health possible. Tree trimming removes dead or diseased branches that inhibit healthy growth. Tree trimming is a simple but vital part of caring for your trees. Thinning unnecessary branches not only preserves the health of your tree, but allows it to flourish as well.

Beauty - By keeping up tree trimming, your trees will also keep up appearances. Trimming makes a lasting impression on the aesthetics of your property and your trees. Senske’s certified arborists will safely trim and prune your trees to your specifications. By trimming, they will also thin out low-hanging branches to create more room around the tree. Overall, your trees will look better and will do so long term.

Safety - Not only does tree trimming improve the health and beauty of your trees, it also makes them safer. Branches that have died or are weakened by disease are prone to breaking off. Of course, a heavy falling branch is dangerous and unpredictable. The larger the branch, the greater the risk. Proper trimming will remove these hazardous branches before the have the opportunity to break.

Trimming Trees in Ogden, UT

 Senske’s certified arborists follow several steps in tree trimming service. In this first step, our arborists will examine and determine what further steps need to be taken to improve the health and beauty of your property. During this step, any indication of disease or damage will be spotted. Once the examination is complete, our ISA certified arborists will remove dead or diseased branches. Any low hanging branches will be cut in a process called “elevating”, which gives the tree extra room around the trunk and close to the ground. Of course, our arborists will trim your trees according to your specifications, altering height and width. However, certified arborists will never use a method of pruning called “topping”. Topping is harmful to trees, it is known to traumatize the tree. Instead of growing back in a natural way, trees will begin to grow thin, weak branches in the place where it has been topped. These branches are insufficient to support the growth of the tree. Furthermore, topping can leave your trees susceptible to infection. All of this can result from topping. Senske never recommends topping because your tree may be permanently damaged, deformed, or even killed. Instead, Senske’s ISA certified arborists trim your trees in a manner that will encourage healthier growth and encourage a stronger tree.

Trimming and Pruning Different Tree Species in Ogden, UT

Whether you own pine trees, oak, fruit trees, or other species, our certified arborists will know exactly how to handle them. Winter is the best time to trim or prune trees. For this reason, Senske recommends considering tree trimming service during colder months. Most trees will be dormant in the winter, allowing for proper trimming without inhibiting growth. Once warm weather rolls around again, the pruned tree will be able to grow stronger.

For fruit trees, pruning is important, as it allows sunlight to reach fruit-bearing branches. Our certified arborists can thin the branches enough so that fruit can properly ripen without leaving the tree in danger of being too exposed during the winter. When the fruit tree flowers begin to wither, this is an indication that it’s time to trim. Pruning fruit trees at the wrong time may leave them vulnerable to disease. For plum trees, the best time to prune is mid-summer to avoid infection from silver leaf disease. To prune apple trees, pruning is best done in spring or summer to prevent a disease called fireblight. In order for a plentiful harvest, fruit trees need to be pruned at the right time in the right way. This ensures good health and fruit for seasons to come.

Similar to fruit trees, oak trees are best trimmed at certain time of the year. Before April and after October is recommended. If trimmed during warmer weather, the oak tree is at risk of developing wilting oak disease.

Pine trees are usually heartier than other tree species. However, trimming can still improve their look and help them grow more fully. The best time to trim a pine is winter or spring. Like pines, aspens are dormant in winter, making winter the best time to trim. If your pine has any damages or diseased branches, they should be removed quickly to prevent infection.
