FAQ: Here's Some Of The Top Questions We Get Asked About Trimming Trees

Why Should I Prune My Trees?

  • Maintain Health: Properly pruning your tree supports its growth and helps control disease. This not only improves the overall health of your tree, but can enable it to better resist future problems.

  • Reduce Risk: Removing weak, overgrown, problematic and potentially hazardous branches helps prevent damage.

  • Improve Look: Pruning helps shape your tree, creating an appealing, balanced look. It also clears away excess branches so they don't interfere with your activities, sunlight or view.

When Is The Best Time To Prune Trees In Southwest Michigan?

Getting the timing is critical when it comes to tree pruning in Kalamazoo and the Southwest Michigan area. For instance, pruning is not recommended at certain times for some species and larger branches should be pruned during the dormant season.

However, if you have damaged, diseased or dead branches, it's a good idea to call a professional to take care of your tree problems right away. A trained expert can take care of damaged or dangerous branches during any time of the year.

What Are The Different Types Of Pruning?

  • Crown Thinning: Thinning out can help stimulate new growth. It can involve the complete removal of an entire limb or branch back to the point of origin.

  • Crown Raising: Raising or lifting removes lower branches. It's designed to allow more clearance and allow more light to pass through.

  • Crown Reduction: This involves reducing the overall height or spread of a tree. Branches are cut back to help the tree maintain form and proper shape.

  • Topping: A more rigorous style of pruning, topping is used to lower the height of a tree.
