Reasons to Trim or Prune a Tree

Trees are generally trimmed for one of three main purposes: aesthetics, safety or health. For example:

Aesthetics – Pruning a tree effectively helps to maintain its appearance as well as shape and size. It’s important to not excessively prune back a tree as this can damage it beyond repair.

Safety – Dead or broken branches tree branches can become a hazard if not promptly dealt with, causing property damage of hurting someone if they fall. Dried out branches could also become a fire hazard. Trees near roads can also obstruct visibility if not pruned. Finally, tree limbs and branches occasionally grow too close to phone and service wires and need to be dealt with.

Health – It is sometimes possible to save a pest infested tree by pruning away branches and limbs that are infected. Thinning the crown of a tree can also improve airflow, which can be very beneficial to branch health. If branches are crossing or rubbing together, they should be trimmed so that they don’t fall unexpectedly.

Fire hazards

Don't let your property become a fire hazard. Overgrown trees, or trees overhanging buildings are fires waiting to happen. We work to not only remove problem trees, but also any fallen branches and limbs are removed as well.

Storm damage

Trees located close to buildings and structures can become a big problem in a storm. Those who have lived around trees will understand that the storm doesn't even need to be strong to do major damage. Anything from a small breeze to hot weather can cause trees to fail and cause major damage to property or even injure someone.

Safety concerns

At Cutting Edge Tree Management, we love trees, and understand that trees can be a great way for kids to explore and discover the world. However, without proper care, trees can be dangerous. We can uplift trees, removing low limbs of trees so the tree is still there, however, there are no small limbs or branches for children to climb or run into.
