Tree Trimming

Little Off the Top? Get Dependable Tree Trimming in Surrey BC

For many homeowners and companies performing tree trimming in Surrey, White Rock, and Langley, the process seems simple, but poorly trimmed and over-trimmed trees don’t just blight your garden, landscaping or commercial outdoor space: they also place the tree in jeopardy of disease or death. Techniques such as topping and deep-trimming are ineffective for long-term growth control. What you end up with (if the tree survives) are faster-growing, more dense clusters of branches because when trees are over-trimmed, they “bet the farm” and apply all their conserved energy to produce new shoots and leaves.

When is Tree Trimming Essential?

If you want to make your trees healthy and improve their lifespan, regular trimming service by professional arborists is a great option. It not only helps to enhance the aesthetics of your landscape but also adds value to it. Tree trimming is best performed when it is used to:

Promote healthy growth

Overgrown branches of trees can cause them to grow weaker. Trimming helps to remove dead, infested or intruding branches and facilitates healthy growth.

Improve aesthetics

Poorly maintained trees can impact your overall landscape. They can also block essential nutrients and water and prevent the healthy growth of your landscape.

Remove dead/diseased portions

Without proper trimming, trees look uneven as their branches grow in different directions and may also overgrow to make them look unbalanced.

Keep your garden, landscaping or commercial outdoor space and family safe

Dead or damaged tree branches are a great cause of concern as they can lead to safety risks for people around them. They can even damage your structure.

That’s it — no more, no less. It is crucial to remember that tree trimming is like surgery for humans — it should be done safely and sparingly.

Why Do Some Tree Care Companies Go Overboard with Trimming?

There are a few reasons for this, with the blame falling on both the tree care workers and homeowners. There are many fly-by-night tree-trimming operations out there serving once-a-decade customers. Typically, these customers have neglected a tree until it’s become a garden, landscaping or commercial outdoor space issue, and they’re expecting big, immediate results. Instead of informing the customer about the proper trimming techniques, schedule, and season for trimming their particular species of tree, these dubiously trained tree trimmers will go about lopping off the top of the crown and leaving behind just a few feet of leaf-supporting stems. Sadly, most customers will happily pay after seeing all the work that has been done, and the tree trimmers are more than happy to take the money. A year or two may go by; then, the garden, landscaping, or commercial outdoor space owner is wondering why their tree has become overtaken by decaying branches, pests, and/or the death of the whole tree. It’s best to do it right the first time and then follow up with regular maintenance.

Best Seasons for Hardwood Tree Pruning

November through March is the dormancy period for hardwood trees and also the best time of year to have any tree trimming or pruning work performed. Unless a particular branch is posing an immediate threat to your garden, landscaping, or commercial outdoor space, major trimming or pruning should never take place during the early spring to early summer months.
