Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, you know that trees and shrubs in your landscaping take seasonal maintenance to keep looking their best and growing healthily. Lots of folks trust their lawn care to a landscaping company. While landscapers are often competent at taking care of your turf, they usually lack the training to properly perform trimming and pruning services on your shrubs and trees. Without proper training, it is easy to make mistakes that can jeopardize the health of your landscaping or make it look worse.

Trimming and pruning services are required when trees begin to overgrow or they need dead sections removed. During a trimming or pruning visit, an arborist will remove excess growth from your trees or shrubs that are unnecessary or possibly unhealthy for the plant.
Trimming and pruning your trees can help improve the aesthetic of specimens. For example, hedges can be shaped for a more desirable look and trees can be made more functional for shade.
“Trimming” usually refers to a corrective procedure where portions of trees are removed for practical reasons. As an example, trees are trimmed when they encroach on utility lines or when limbs grow too close to a structure. Trimming is usually done not for the purpose of the health of the tree but to remove undesirable tree growth.
Similar to trimming, pruning is a process in which an arborist will remove matter from a plant. The difference is that pruning is usually done to improve the health of the tree. Trees are pruned for a variety of reasons, including:
