Trimming & Pruning


Trimming & Pruning

Crucial parts of the tree maintenance process, pruning is used to remove excessive branches while trimming stimulates nutritious growth. Both services are employed at specific times of the year using unique pieces of equipment, all to provide improved aesthetics and a healthier landscape.

​Pruning and trimming are very different things. Pruning is meant to keep a tree’s shape, while trimming simply reduces the size of branches to promote better airflow and less congestion in the canopy.

Get Your Limbs In Shape!

In late winter, as the vernal equinox approaches, home and business owners in North America start to think about the spring season. The time of year when all things natural start to come back to life. And for some things – like trees – it means that they will require attention.

Pruning and trimming is necessary every few years or so for healthy growth and maintenance of many different types of trees. It can also help prolong the life span of your tree. If you’re not sure if or how much you should be pruning or trimming a tree on your property, here are some general guidelines with important information on when to call in a professional tree service company like Brooklyn Tree Service Pros.

DIY or call in the pros?

If you’re thinking of pruning or trimming any part of your tree, whether it’s a tall pine in the back yard or a small sapling out front, there are some things you should know. Although many homeowners like to take matters into their own hands when it comes to tree care, this can actually be more harmful than helpful. However, if you do decide to take on the project yourself, here are some of the main signs that a tree needs pruning:

  • When trees become overgrown and branches start encroaching into paths and walkways that people use to access the house or business

  • Where large dead branches can fall during storms causing damage to structures

  • When branches on the tree rub against each other and cause damage

  • When branches start to grow in ways that may interfere with overhead power lines

Pruning & trimming: what you need to know

Only remove branches that are dead or diseased. If you have a stubborn branch or one that has broken off, call Brooklyn Tree Service Pros instead of trying to cut it down on your own with a chainsaw. The last thing you want is for your already weakened tree to fall onto the roof of your house or vehicle – or worse still, injure you, a neighbor or loved one.

Do not hire a tree care company that doesn’t have insurance. You don’t want to be liable for any injuries or damage that might occur when they’re working on your tree.
