When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?
Sometimes a tree gets to a point where trimming and pruning it are no longer adequate and it no longer fits in with your garden or it becomes necessary to have it removed before it causes untold damage to your property or injures someone. Some of the main causes for tree removal are
- The foliage of the tree has lost its visual appeal due to disease, or bugs destroying its limbs and leaves.
- Limbs, branches and leaves have grown too close to your buildings and are now blocking the sunlight from coming into your premises, and causing moisture build up on the walls and roof due to blocking the sun from them.
- The tree has been battered by a storm and sustained some structural damage. The tree could now cause damage to your property or injure someone with falling branches or it could completely fall over, causing even more serious damage.
- You are wanting to change the landscaped outlook of your garden and the old tree does not fit in with the aesthetics of your new look garden.
- The tree’s roots are starting to pose a threat to your property’s foundation or to the underground pipe work.
Felling The Tree Yourself
Sometime people who have a tree that they want removing attempt to remove the tree themselves or they use unqualified contractors. Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous job and should only be carried out by tree surgeons because:
- If the roots are not removed correctly then the tree can grow again.
- Old tree stumps which have not been removed correctly are not just an eyesore they are also potentially dangerous.
- Our tree surgeons know how to use the latest equipment to help them climb and access difficult areas.
- Using the wrong tools or techniques when dismantling a tree can cause untold damages to your property or even severely injure someone.

Stump Grinding - DIY Vs. Hiring The Experts
Experts performing tree pruning and trimming services make it seem easy, but there is so much more to it than just cutting here and there. While some tasks can be done on your own using your pruners and saws, most of them are best left to the pros. According to the experts, the right pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.
The terms trimming and pruning are often interchangeably used to denote cutting trees, but for clarification, just remember trimming has to do with grooming. Pruning has to do with the tree's health, as well as the safety of people and structures near the tree.
People have tree pruning and trimming services for four general classifications, two of which have to do with trimming and the others related to pruning. The first, trimming or fine pruning, entails cutting to improve the tree's appearance. The second, standard pruning, involves more cutting to improve the tree's structure.
The third, safety pruning or hazard pruning, is one where branches are removed because of safety considerations. When branches hang too low causing any danger, those trees are pruned. The fourth, crown reduction, involves removing the branches on the tops or sides of trees. This is usually done to prevent trees from reaching utility lines or damaging roofs, and to allow air and sunlight to reach the inner branches.
Pruning the Right Way
Tree pruning and trimming services, when done by trained professionals, ensure that your trees are pruned correctly and efficiently. If you intend to do the pruning on your own, refrain from using climbing spurs, which can damage tree trunks and barks. See to it that the barks on the edges of the pruning cuts are still attached firmly. As for large, heavy branches, make sure to cut them in sections to prevent the bark from tearing or splitting. Remember to use ropes to lower the large branches do not throw them to the ground.
Pruning the Right Time
You can have tree pruning and trimming services at any time of the year these services depend on the kinds of trees you have. Flowering trees that bloom in spring can be trimmed or pruned right after they flowering. Those that bloom in summer have to be pruned in early spring. It is recommended to prune fruit-bearing trees during late winter to give them shape and allow sunlight to shine on the tree's center.
Hardwood trees or shrubs without flowers are best pruned in the dormant season, during late fall or winter. As for dead branches, these can be cut at any time of the year.
Tree Pruning and Trimming Services from the Experts
Cutting tree branches is not as simple as it appears. It is a risky situation that, without the proper tools and equipment, can lead to accidents. When doing the pruning and trimming yourself, make sure to fasten yourself to a tree using at least two secure points. Work with someone who will raise the cutting tools to you. Keep yourself protected with gloves, safety glasses, and a hard hat.
If everything else fails, do not fret there are always professionals who are willing and able to do tree pruning and trimming services for you.

Ash Juniper Trees
Most people hear about tree trimming and pruning and they think they are the same thing. However, the professionals that work in the field know that is not the case. There are different procedures which are used for each one of those things. Both pruning and trimming are extremely important to the life and look of your trees because they help with the health as well as to give a warm feeling to your home. Tree trimming is mostly like grooming or maintenance in that it will focus mainly on the tree's outer appearance. When you are looking to shape your trees in order to make them look better and take out the branches that seem out of place, you are thinking of trimming. Tree pruning, on the other hand has to do mostly with the overall health of the tree.
More On Tree Trimming
Tree trimming services may be about grooming your trees but you should not think of it as something that just anyone can do. Though the trimming services will have to do more with appearances arborists will be able to look for other things that may need care in your tree. If a branch is too heavy, for example, they will remove it for safety reasons and work the trimming around those removed branches. They will also be able to find early signs of disease and while they will not be taking care of it while trimming, they will inform you of the problem so that you can hire the pruning service.
More On Tree Pruning
As stated earlier, tree pruning services are mostly for the health of your tree. If a problem such as an infestation can be taken care of without the removal of branches, then arborists will do that. If the removal of leaves and branches is necessary then it will be done in a safe manner, trying to save as much of the tree as possible. The professional doing the pruning will be able to see how bad the problem is and how drastic the measures taken should be. While in most cases there will not need to be an extreme pruning done, it all depends on how advanced the problem is.
When To Get The Services
If you require tree trimming or other similar services, it is important to know when you should get them. Trimming can be done in the late winter and early spring so that the trees flourish and look great by the time the summer comes around. Pruning, on the other hand, is best left for the middle of the winter as it is a lot easier to look at which branches should be taken care of. Because the temperatures hardly ever reach freezing in the area, the appointments for pruning are almost always kept. The amount of time spent on your property by a professional will depend on how big the property is and how many trees need the service.
