Tree trimming should gain the same popularity as our most requested tree service, tree removal. Not every homeowner knows that trimming or pruning at the least does a lot of benefits to the overall welfare of their trees. Untrimmed trees don’t only look unsightly, but they can also be a threat to your safety. A lot of tree species would benefit from trimming every three to five years to maintain their structure and health. Trimming will get rid of dead, damaged, and dying limbs and branches that can impact the health of the entire tree, as well as the other trees in the area.  You should also be aware that most insurance policies will not honor your claims when there is negligence on your end.

You will be surprised by how beautiful and healthy your tree will become after trimming.
