When Should You Hire Professional Tree Services?

Except for tiny trees, professional tree services are usually the safest way to go when you need tree trimming or removal. You might be able to remove the tree by yourself if the tree is short enough. However, the procedure is time-consuming if you don’t have the necessary instruments. Consider the size of the felling area as well. Any felling site should be twice as long and wide as the tree’s height, and it should be free of any obstacles like power lines or outbuildings. Leave it to the professionals if the tree trunk is more significant than 10 inches. Trees that once required pruning may now demand complete removal. Fortunately, we can do both.

Types of Tree Trimming

Dead Pruning

This entails removing any dead, diseased, or dying branches. It’s also known as crown cleaning, and it aids in the improvement of the tree’s overall look. Removing those branches as soon as possible reduces the danger of injury and property damage. You also keep diseased branches from spreading and improve the tree’s aesthetic right away.

Instead of removing the entire branch, you can sometimes focus on reducing the quantity of the deadwood on the tree. This tree cutting method reduces the tree’s risk and improves its appearance.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning removes weaker branches of the tree to expand the canopy. Crown thinning allows more air and light into the tree. Removing defective branches also lightens the load on the larger branches.

Professionals will remove any unnecessary branches from the crown’s edges as well. However, avoid removing too many components from the tree’s heart since this may compromise the tree’s physical integrity.

Crown Lifting

To reduce the mass of the larger limbs, arborists may choose to remove some of the lower branches of the tree crown. The goal of crown lifting is to clear roadways and sidewalks of branches that may interfere with the design of the area or people’s mobility.

Because thicker branches produce deeper wounds on the tree, tree cutting negatively affects fully developed trees. As a result, crown raising is recommended for younger plants. It’s also a good idea to avoid over-pruning, as this can harm the tree’s lower limbs.

This tree cutting method allows your tree to blend in with its surroundings.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction is all about lowering the tree’s overall height or the mass of its more giant limbs. On younger trees, this type of tree trimming service is highly recommended. However, on older trees, it is not. Therefore, it’s preferable to remove an entire limb rather than just a portion of one in elder trees.

This form of tree cutting aims to eliminate terminal branches while still preserving the main limb. Crown reduction should be performed with caution and only by professionals familiar with the tree species’ growth pattern. When done correctly, Crown reduction helps your tree continue to grow healthy and reduces the chance of decay after trimming.


This tree trimming method entails eliminating all branches and leaving only the secondary components of the main stem as a framework. Experts recommend beginning pollarding when the tree is still young and repeated at strategic intervals throughout its life.
