Tree Trimming & Pruning
Tree Trimming & Pruning
Trees can be beautiful ornaments that decorate your landscape and substantially raise the value of your property, but they can also be massive liabilities. Trees can threaten personal utility lines, roofs, pedestrians, and the growth of surrounding plants and trees. Keeping your trees strong and healthy can be the difference between a valuable house and a branch crashing through the roof. Tree trimming and tree pruning are two crucial parts of a tree’s growth and development.

What Is the Difference?
Though the two are sometimes used interchangeably, trimming and pruning have slightly different purposes. Both involve removing branches or limbs, but trimming is focused more on the appearance of the tree, and tree pruning is more for the health of the tree. For instance, you would trim branches to give the tree a nice shape, and you would prune branches that are diseased or infested. Don’t worry. Timber Ridge Tree Care offers both services. Our arborists can inspect your trees and figure out what needs to be done.
The Benefits of Tree Trimming and Pruning
Tree pruning and tree trimming can be challenging in congested areas, but the effort is worthwhile. Some of the benefits of tree trimming include:
Safety: Overhanging tree branches pose serious and legitimate threats to pedestrians and personal property. Further, dead or dying branches are extremely flammable; a lightning strike can set the tree on fire. Removing these risky branches may also be a requirement by your property insurance company.
Tree Health: Tree pruning eliminates dead, dying, or diseased branches to prevent the spread of disease and decay. It also redirects nutrients to productive parts of the tree. Further, tree trimming allows trees to enjoy increased sun exposure and airflow, benefitting nearby plants and shrubs as well.
Aesthetics: Pruning and trimming branches is an art as much as it is a science. Tree pruning guides young trees to become sturdy structures. Meanwhile, tree trimming can turn your trees into fun shapes that decorate your lawn or landscape.
All of these have financial benefits as well. Reduce the risk of legal liability, keep your property insured, and increase the value of your property by taking good care of those trees. Timber Ridge Tree Care is proud to offer these services at affordable rates.
