Reasons to get your trees trimmed in Delta
Having your trees trimmed may be required for a number of reasons. First, you might want to trim your shrubs, trees or hedges to maintain their shape and keep them aesthetically pleasing to look at. Also, trees might require trimming in order to keep them away from sensitive areas such as a home, roof, power line, window or just from growing too tall.
Trimming and Pruning: What’s the difference?
Tree trimming focuses on maintaining a designed form or shape of a tree, and usually applies to hedges and shrubs, while the main goal of pruning is to promote good branch structure and tree health. As it is always important to keep the health of your trees in mind when trimming or cutting branches, trees are normally trimmed and pruned simultaneously. To ensure your trees will remain healthy after our work is done, all of the trees we prune are done by certified arborists on staff.
When should I get my trees trimmed?
The best time really depends on the species of plant to be trimmed. once or twice a year. Despite the fact that trees can be trimmed at any time of the year, it’s suggested that you trim your trees in the Winter or Fall months when the trees are dormant. This is better for the well-being of the trees and it’ll likely save you some money since it’s easier for us to trim trees when there is less foliage to haul away. Again, this depends on the species of tree that’s being trimmed. To be sure, it’s always best to check with an arborist.
