Tree trimming and pruning are both essential to the health and vitality of the trees and bushes on your residential or commercial property. Although both involve cutting parts of a tree away, trimming and pruning each serve slightly different purposes.
Trimming typically is done to enhance the overall appearance of a tree or shrub and involves cutting away overgrown branches and shaping limbs into a specific shape. Local Arborist recommends trimming be done twice per year, with one of those times occurring after the flowering season is complete.
Tree pruning and trimming can also be utilized to eliminate dead, diseased, or otherwise dying branches to improve overall health and viability.
