Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning, West Hollywood
Has your beautiful tree in your front yard gotten out of control? Are you afraid that the branches of your huge California Redwood will cause damage to your home?
You may be wondering what the difference is between tree trimming and pruning. Not to worry, many of our customers wonder the same thing.
TREE TRIMMING VS. TREE PRUNING
It is important to regularly trim and prune your trees in order to promote healthy growth and keep them luscious and beautiful. The differences between trimming and pruning are minor, but important. The main difference between the two is in the purpose.
The goal of tree trimming is to promote strong healthy trees and hedges. Healthier trees will make your yard or storefront greener and more welcoming to visitors.
To successfully trim a tree, the green shoots have to be removed. This is done with saws, trimmers, and shears to promote healthiness. After trimming, you will see a difference in growth and appearance.
The goal of tree pruning is to remove unnecessary branches and roots. Not only are dead branches ugly, but they can grow towards electrical lines and buildings. This can cause preventable damage, so why wait? We can help you avoid the stress and cost of damage caused by branches that have become a nuisance.
Depending on the size and healthiness of the tree, we may use hand shears or lopping shears for pruning. These are usually strong enough to cut through thin branches. The use of a saw may be required to remove thicker branches.
REASONS TO KEEP UP WITH TREE MAINTENANCE

- Increase the overall appearance of your home or business

WHEN TO GET YOUR TREES TRIMMED AND PRUNED
The simple answer for when you should hire an arborist is “when your trees need it.” However, the best time to get your trees trimmed is at the end of Winter, right before the tree sap is sent up the tree trunk.
Large trees, like Fir Pines, do best when we remove all of last year’s sucklings. These sucklings make it hard for the tree to get air and even take away the tree’s nutrients. Pruning should be done when the larger branches become heavy and start bending downward.
