Tree trimming is important for aesthetic reasons and to encourage the growth of strong, healthy trees.

It isn’t as simple as some people think, and it is important to understand the basics before you start or you could end up hurting your tree instead of helping it. And it’s very important to polish up on tree trimming safety so you don’t end up hurting yourself in the process!

When Is the Best Time to Trim?

As a general rule, spring thru early summer is the best time to work on your trees, though this varies depending on the type of tree you’re dealing with.

Basic Trimming Suggestions
If you do your own trimming, there are a few things to keep in mind when you get going. For starters, it’s important not to cut a limb too short or leave it too long. Cut it as close to the “collar” of the branch as possible to avoid providing an entry point for disease and insects. Also, never top off a tree or severely cut back major branches. Doing so will seriously damage the natural structure of the tree, and the resulting growths will look thin, disproportionate, and ugly. You can read more tree trimming tips here.
