Tree & Shrub Trimming
Pruning, or trimming trees, is one of the most important ways to ensure beautiful, long-lasting, healthy trees. Tree pruning has many benefits. It improves tree health, as well as the aesthetic beauty of the tree and the overall appearance of your property. Trimming is particularly important for safety. Proactively dealing with dead, damaged or overgrown limbs before they impede traffic visibility, fall or grow over power lines can prevent damage to structures, vehicles and property. Ice on branches can weigh down and weaken branches. Strategic pruning, called “vista pruning,” can increase property values by improving visual access to and from your property and improving the view.
When and how trees are pruned differs depending on the goals you wish to achieve. Winter is considered the best time of year for routine maintenance. It encourages a burst of new growth in the spring, minimizes the risk of fungal infections, and minimizes sap loss. Summer pruning can be done strategically when the goal is to minimize long-term tree growth. Fall is considered the worst time because fungi are active and proliferating. A variety of different types and strategies for pruning are listed below. The Certified Arborists at ABS Tree Care have the training and experience to maximize these benefits for your property. They are also familiar with local ordinances dealing with trimming processes and the laws concerning trimming trees that cross property lines.
Bushes and shrubs should be trimmed regularly to encourage proper growth and development — especially in the fall. It’s also very important to trim your bushes back away from your house so they don’t hold in moisture and promote mold and mildew growth. ABS Tree Care provides professional, quick and affordable fall bush service and shrub trimming.
