When we talk about trimming trees we are usually referring to removing dead leaves and trying to get the tree into shapes and designs that will look appealing. At the same time what we are going to try and do is make sure that these “designs” will also promote healthy tree growth. There are a ton of things to consider here. Obviously, the frequency of our trimming procedures could vary quite a bit depending on the time of year when we are actually getting this done. As with many of the services that we provide the result will be heavily influenced by our proper planning.
What Type of Trees Do You Have In Your Home?
New homeowners may not even be fully aware of the type of trees that they happen to have at home. That’s one of the main reasons why on our first visit to a new client what we have to do is figure out what type of trees we are going to be dealing with. The last thing that we want to do is just come in and tree every single tree to try and justify our services. Remember that different types of trees will have different growth patterns and different needs.
How Often Should I Be Getting My Trees Trimmed?
This is certainly one of the more common questions that we get. Again, the answer is going to depend on the type of trees that you have. What we can do is come up with a long term plan and schedule that allows us to come in and trim your trees just when they are starting to get a little bit long. Also, if you hire us on a recurring basis, there is a better chance that we’ll be able to prep your trees for the changing season. It could be a good idea to trim them monthly, some may need bi-weekly help. There are different options on the table for sure.
Prepping For Winter
Winters can get rough around here. Sure, evergreen trees may not have a major problem with the weather. Other types of trees tend to dry up quite a bit at this time of year. What we can do is make sure that we trim them down to almost a minimum. That way we’ll be able to remove a lot of the leaves and twigs that were going to fall out anyway. You won’t have to deal with major debris issues.
Trimming Shrubs, Bushes, & Other Types of Plants
Certainly most of the references that we make revolve around our ability to trim and prune trees. We want to make sure it’s clear though that our work is by no means 100% devoted to literal trees. We also do a lot of work on shrubs and bushes. Particularly in prepping those for the winter as well and making sure that throughout the year they look the part. There are also other types of plants that we can trim and have them looking great.
