Basics of Tree Trimming

Tree trimming involves the removal of dangerous limbs or dead branches that could be detrimental to the safety of the people around it, buildings and power lines. More so, it could be used to enhance the curb appeal of the landscape and to increase the physical health of the trees.

Though evergreen trees like the Citrus should be pruned more frequently than the deciduous ones, pruning is required every three to seven years, and there should be a purpose to every cut. No matter the type of tree in your property, never consider DIY options when it comes to tree trimming because it is not a task for the inexperienced or untrained homeowner.

With the above considerations and other expert analysis that will be done by our team, we will trim and transform the unappealing, unhealthy, and threatening trees in your property.

Proper tree pruning principles

Safety rules and regulations

The safety of the tree and the tree care specialist should be the priority of every stakeholder in the project. The climber needs to follow laid down procedures like:

Doing a pre-work assessment of the tree and the environment to identify cracked trees, limbs, and other weaknesses. The technician/climber should also identify power lines and determine the minimum working distance to them.

Additionally, the work areas must be marked out to protect both passers-by and co-workers. Ideally, the saw or other equipment must be test run, and the climber must wear the right PPE.

The Right Season/Time for Tree Trimming

There is a precise timing for every activity and such applies to the trimming of the trees. Apart from safety or emergency reasons, it is recommended that pruning should be done in late fall or winter. The trees at this time and season can withstand the harmful processes involved in pruning.

The removal of limbs, branches, or any other part of the tree as a result of pruning can cause damages to the tree. So, it should be done when the trees are less susceptible.

If you're unsure of the type of tree in your property or the right time trim it, call Sesmas Tree Service for expert advice.

Lastly, less is more when it comes to tree trimming! Never prune too much of the tree too quickly to avoid rendering irredeemable damages to the tree. Tree trimming could cause fatal damages or the death of the tree, so care should be taken in all aspect of the process.

Make sure that a professional at Sesmas Tree Service handles your tree trimming, so you can still enjoy all the benefits of having a tree in your property.
