Tree Trimming Improves Safety and Can Increase Value

Tree trimming, also called pruning, is the most common tree maintenance procedure. In a forest trees grow well with only nature’s pruning, however landscape trees require more care to maintain their safety and aesthetics. Tree trimming should be performed with an understanding of how a tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can damage a tree and possibly shorten the tree’s life.

The main reasons for tree trimming, cabling and bracing include safety, health, and aesthetics. In addition, pruning can be used to stimulate fruit production and increase a tree’s value.

Tree removal can be prevented in some instances, especially when your Gregory Forrest Lester, Inc. arborist determines that there’s a safe and reasonable alternative available that allows you to keep your favorite tree. Proactive tree service and routine maintenance is the best approach to ensure the longevity of your trees. Cabling and bracing add support to structurally vulnerable or injured trees and limbs. These supports prevent injuries to your trees, including crotch and branch failure, and help protection against storm damage. This practice may lengthen the life and improve the wellbeing of your trees.

Trimming, Cabling and Bracing According to the Type of Tree

Mature Trees

Gregory Forrest Lester, Inc. prunes mature trees for health and safety. Large deadwood is removed. Thinning increases air movement within the canopy and lightens the load on main structural branches. Cabling and bracing may be necessary to reduce the risk of splitting in storms.

Young Trees
