TREE PRUNING and TRIMMING

Pruning increases a tree’s health and enhances a tree’s aesthetics. Proper pruning creates optimum trunk and branch structure for a long life span, reduces hazards, allows for more clearance from buildings and sidewalks, increases root development, and growth control. There are many different forms of pruning to accomplish many different objectives and our Arborists have the skills and tools to meet pruning goals every time.

At Parshall Tree Care, you get a licensed and insured team that is experienced and trained in proper pruning (trimming) practices. One of our certified arborists will visit you on site to determine the scope of the job. They will then email or mail a proposal and costs to complete your work. We can then schedule your pruning to be done in a timely manner.

ADVANTAGES OF REGULAR PRUNING:

  • Aesthetic advancements to your property
  • Removal of dead limbs before decay spreads into the trunk
  • Removal of hazardous limbs and risk mitigation
  • Removal of crossing and rubbing branches that can cause decay
  • Structural pruning of young trees to train them as they age (increased branch strength)
  • Size reduction
  • Storm preventative and restorative pruning
  • Clearance concerns for homes and utilities
  • Increased lifespan of your trees

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Each tree and shrub has its own style. Each customer has their own vision and goal in mind of what they want their landscape to look like. From powered pruning shears for a dense shrub, to hand pruning to keep a natural shape and increased flowering are both common pruning styles. Trees can have their canopies elevated high or also kept low, depending on customer desires. There is pruning that removes dead and decaying wood, promoting a healthier tree.

In the end, our arborists will ask questions to determine your desires and end result and we have the training and skills to accomplish almost any goal in mind.

We look for dead, dry peeling bark. Once we are in a tree pruning it’s obvious to tell dead buds from healthy buds, and dead brown tissue from healthy green tissues.

How quickly pruning goes is determined by the size of the job and its location. If we are removing a few branches that we can reach with pole saws from the ground it will be very quick. If we are cleaning all the dead wood out from a tree’s canopy, it could take an entire day to be completed properly.

A tree along a driveway will allow us easier access resulting in saved time, versus a tree down a ravine we are pruning to open up a new view.
