Tree trimming offers three main benefits:
Health - Consistent trimming is one of the best things you can do to keep your trees healthy. Dead wood is removed to make room for new healthy branches. Once dead branches are removed, new ones will be able to grow back stronger. Making way for new branches is important to the lasting health of your trees.
Beauty -
Consistency also prevents your trees from growing wildly. This method improves the appearance of your property by keeping branches orderly and symmetrical. Our certified arborists will prune your trees according to your requests to get the look you want. Tree trimming brings out the best in your trees and creates more space around the tree. Preventing overcrowding and giving your trees a better shape are a few benefits from long-term tree service.
Safety -
Besides improving the beauty and health of your trees, trimming makes your property safer too. Over time, branches that have died or are dying become weak and tend to break off. Falling branches put the safety of your family at risk. Regular trimming ensures that these dangerous branches are removed before they have the opportunity to break. Protecting your family is one of Senske’s top priorities.

Trimming Trees in Salt Lake City, UT


The process of trimming involves several steps. First, arborists will evaluate your trees. They will look for warning signs that your they may exhibit, as well as any additional needs that your trees may have. Diseases that may be harming your trees will be spotted. The arborists will then determine what next steps need to be taken. Once the arborists have a grasp of the situation, they will then proceed to trim dead wood and excess branches. Low hanging branches will be trimmed to make more space below the tree and around the trunk. This process is called “elevating”. Depending on your specifications, our arborists will trim your trees to adjust both width and height. One method that our certified arborists will never use is called “topping”. Topping is a process that involves chopping limbs and branches in a way that is traumatic to trees. Where the tree has been topped, small shoots will grow in its place. Unfortunately, these weak branches take away nutrients from the tree and it will never grow back in the same way. Topping makes trees unpleasant in appearance and harms them. The rough cuts of topping leave the tree vulnerable to disease. Because your tree may be permanently damaged, deformed, or even killed, Senske will never recommend topping. Certified arborists will always work in the proper way to promote lasting health and beauty. 

Trimming and Pruning Different Tree Species in Salt Lake City, UT 

No matter what trees you have on your property, pine, oak, fruit trees, or others, Senske’s certified arborists will know how to care for them. When it comes to trimming, we recommend winter as the best time to prune your trees. The majority of trees go dormant during the winter. This makes the cold season the best time to trim. The tree is not attempting to grow and any trimmed branches will grow back stronger in the spring.
Fruit trees should be pruned to assist them in growing healthy, delicious fruit. Overcrowded branches could block the sun from reaching fruit-bearing branches. Thinning out these branches give the fruit a change to grow and ripen well. Our certified arborists will prune fruit trees to allow for optimal growing without leaving them exposed to cold weather. As fruit tree flowers begin to fade, this is the most opportune time to begin trimming. If fruit tree trimming is done at a time that is not recommended, it may cause them to be susceptible to disease. For example, plum trees, should be pruned mid-summer otherwise, they could be infected with silver leaf disease. Apple trees, should be trimmed in spring or summer to prevent a disease called fireblight. A successful harvest can be achieved by trimming or pruning fruit trees at right time in the right way. Tree trimming services for fruit trees help them yield good fruit to enjoy for lasting seasons.
Like fruit trees, oak should be trimmed at certain times of the year. From November to March is the recommended time to trim them. Trimming oak during warmer weather could cause them to catch wilted oak disease.
Pines are tough. While they may seem like they need less attention than other species of trees, they still greatly benefit from trimming. Tree trimming can give them more shape and body. Both aspen and pines should be trimmed in winter or spring. If you notice that your pine trees have any damaged, dead, or diseased branches, the best thing to do is to remove them as quickly as you can. Leaving them be opens your pine to disease.
