Tree trimming; how often is it required?

Posted on 01/12/14 in Tree Pruning, No Comments

Tree trimming is the process of cutting or removing branches or stems for the tree’s benefit. This process is done for two basic reasons; to ensure that the dead branches are removed to promote growth and to ensure that the trees are shaped in a way that they compliment the overall look of the garden or yard.

As for the question on how often it is required, it is highly recommended to do it as often as possible particularly if there are diseased, damaged, or dead branches that need to be removed. This is to ensure that your tree is healthy and strong to prevent safety hazards such as low growing branches that can easily be damaged by storm.

The best time to trim your trees is during early spring or late winter just before they begin to open their buds. Although tree trimming can be done anytime of the year, experts suggest that you avoid extreme winter cold or hot dry periods as trees are typically more vulnerable during this time. They bleed easily and they take a lot of time to recover from wounds.

When doing tree trimming, it is always wise to start with a plan. You need to know the reason why you need to trim a particular tree and you need to have a specific goal in mind. Make sure that you use the right equipment. Remember, trimming a tree, when done right, can help the trees. However, if you do it the wrong way, it will harm them.
