Tree Trimming

Depend on Arcadia Tree Service to help your trees live longer and look better by keeping them properly trimmed and pruned. Trimming increases air circulation within the tree, and that reduces disease and weather damage.

Tree trimming gets rid of dead or unhealthy limbs that are safety hazards in severe weather. High winds can dislodge dead branches turning them into projectiles that can penetrate roofs, damage cars and injure people.

Lawns and plants in areas shaded by trees receive more sunlight when trees are regularly trimmed, and a routine maintenance schedule is followed. Even grass and plants labeled for shaded areas still do better with some diffused sunlight through the trees.

When To Prune And Trim Your Trees

Regular maintenance pruning of most trees is good anytime of the year, but a few species do better with fall or spring pruning. Arcadia Tree Service is knowledgeable about which trees have preferences even for light maintenance trimming.

Only prune during a drought if a plucked leaf shows moisture. If moisture is present, they will grow back.

Prune during active growth seasons because that is when the tree can quickly heal the cuts. Prune summer flowering trees in the winter.

Anytime dead branches pose a safety hazard like falling on people or property. Trim anytime tree limbs interfere with power lines or become a vision obstacle for drivers and pedestrians.

Prune dead branches anytime, there will be no damage to the health of the tree.

Prune large branches that cross and rub against each other. You should not cut where two branches come together in a V shape.

Only prune healthy limbs if you want to improve the form of a tree.
