Shadywood Tree Experts

Tree trimming, or pruning, is necessary for proper tree care. When done correctly, it eliminates identified weak and poorly attached branches and promotes proper tree structure. Each year you can feel confident that your tree is healthy, safe, and aesthetically pleasing. Also, it will lower the risk of accidents that could cost thousands of dollars later down the road.

If our ISA Certified Arborists can visit your site and assess the health of your trees, and they can outline any pruning which may be required. Proper pruning or trimming results in a healthier tree by accomplishing the following:

  • Increasing sunlight within the canopy of the tree
  • Trimming out dead branches
  • Allowing wind to pass through the tree, reducing wind damage during storms
  • Raising up low limbs to make it easier to walk under trees
  • Raising trees away from your house, garage, shed or other structure

A well-trimmed tree is a safer tree. By properly and regularly pruning your trees, the following benefits are achieved:

  • Reduce the risk of dead, dying, and weak branches falling and causing damage to property
  • Increase airflow through the tree's canopy to decrease the risk of a top-heavy tree coming down in high winds
  • Give better clearance by trimming branches away from street and house lights, traffic intersections, and electrical wires
  • Get heightened security around windows and entrances by trimming obstructing branches or overgrown bushes to allow more visibility
