Trimming your Trees is Healthy for them

Proper tree trimming and pruning can be highly beneficial. When done right, it can help trees stay healthy and encourage growth in a desired direction. 

It also enhances the overall appearance of the tree. In addition, trimming serves an important safety function by removing low-hanging, broken, or whip-like branches that could cause harm or damage. 

Clearing tree growth from walkways, sidewalks, doorways, and parking areas is also crucial for preventing accidents. Trees near roads should be trimmed to avoid blocking drivers' or pedestrians' view, which could result in hefty fines. 

Lastly, removing dead, diseased, or storm-damaged branches is essential for maintaining tree health.

When Should You Trim Your Trees

Regular trimming and molding can influence the growth of a tree in the future. By trimming certain areas and promoting growth in others, trees can be directed to grow in a way that leads to greater durability in harsh weather conditions and the ability to withstand heavy weight.

It is possible to trim trees at any time of the year, but there are certain times that are better for specific types of trees. During the Spring, when trees are just starting to come out of their dormant state, it is an ideal time to redirect new growth. If the tree is a flowering variety, it is best to wait until after the blooming period to prune. The Summer season is a good time to thin out the tree or shrub because there is less growth activity and the foliage makes it easier to determine where to cut. It is important to remember that frost can cause damage to recently cut areas, so take this into consideration when deciding when to trim. ​
