Benefits of Regular Tree Trimming Include Better Health, Air Circulation, Appearance, & More

There are numerous benefits that result from regular tree trimming. Below you will find the most important reasons to trim, which include:

  • Tree health is generally improved when dead or damaged branches are removed. The risk of a fallen branch damaging property or injuring a person is also eliminated.
  • Air circulation is impacted during trimming because the removal of unnecessary branches will clear more space for the tree to breathe. Sunlight and oxygen will better reach the entire tree and the ground below, which will provide better nutrients for the tree roots.
  • An improved appearance is perhaps the most obvious benefit of tree trimming, which is usually done to preserve the desired shape and size of trees. Neat and orderly trees are more visually appealing.
  • A better view can be provided once a tree is trimmed, leaving you with a more wide open feel on your property

Pruning Benefits Include Plant Disease Control, Increased Fruit Production, & Manicured Growth

Pruning differs from trimming in several ways. Trimming is the process of removing limbs to prevent fallen branches and to create the shape and size property owners desire. Pruning is performed for the overall health of the tree. Below you will find the primary reasons that pruning is important.

  • Plant disease is a major consideration when pruning. Experienced arborists know which branches are showing signs of disease or blight, and can help prevent them from spreading. Keeping them pruned at the right time of year will encourage the strength of the tree.
  • Fruit production can be boosted when the correct pruning methods are applied. Removing the dormant buds during the winter can invigorate the remaining buds to encourage better production.
  • Manicured growth can be achieved with proper pruning. A trained and experienced crew can selectively prune certain branches so the tree grows exactly as planned, preventing interference with structures and other plants.
