Benefits of Getting Your Trees Trimmed and Pruned

When Thornton Towers Tree Service trims and prunes your trees, you enjoy the following benefits.

Improved Tree Health

We’ll make sure any dying, dead, diseased and broken branch is removed. This prevents the trees from decaying any further. It also ensures the surrounding landscape isn’t affected as well. Furthermore, by removing excess foliage, your trees can absorb more nutrients from the soil and use them efficiently. That way, the trees will grow to be both beautiful and strong.

If your tree gives out fruit, more nutrients mean bigger and juicier fruits to enjoy due to this increased productivity.

Improved Tree Appearance

DIY tree trimming and pruning can ruin the structure of a tree to the point it becomes an eyesore. Our tree care experts have a keen eye for beauty. They will preserve the structure of the tree on top of making it pleasing to the eye.

Early Detection of Disease and Infection

 While doing the job, our arborists will be able to detect early signs of disease and infection. This will allow us to recommend the necessary action to prevent further spread and potentially save the tree.

Reduce Property Damage

If a tree is too close to your house or any structure in your yard, great care needs to be taken to when trimming or pruning. The last thing you want is a branch falling on your roof or car windshield. The impact can cause costly damage.

And since we eliminate all weak limbs, we effectively stormproof the trees. This ensures that Colorado’s strong winds don’t easily knock them off, giving you peace of mind during a storm.

Improved Sun Exposure

Your tree’s leaves need all the sunlight they can get for efficient photosynthesis. However, when there are too many leaves, other leaves don’t get enough or any sunlight. This significantly reduces the tree’s capability to maximize photosynthesize. This can affects the tree’s growth since photosynthesis is how trees produce their energy.

Since we remove unnecessary branches, we ensure that sunlight is evenly distributed throughout the tree. This improves photosynthesis, improving the overall health of the tree.

Tree Trimming and Pruning FAQ

What is the Difference Between Tree Trimming and Pruning?

Tree trimming is about making sure the tree looks beautiful and grows healthily. The primary focus of a tree trimming service is on the aesthetics of the tree. This usually involves the removal of overgrown branches that make it look misshapen and/or unbalanced.

Pruning, on the other hand, goes beyond just trimming the tree for a better appearance. It is about removing unnecessary or even harmful branches. For example, branches are pruned when they are growing towards the direction of structures and assets in your property. Also, branches that are dead or diseased are pruned to prevent them from compromising the health of the tree.

How Often Should My Trees Be Trimmed?

Trees can be trimmed at any time, so it is a matter of your preferred aesthetics. You can inspect your trees to see which ones look out of shape and call a tree service as needed. Or you can have a tree care professional come once or twice a year to trim your trees.

When is the Right Time to Get My Trees Pruned

Pruning largely depends on your situation. For example, you can prune a branch that has grown in the wrong direction and is hanging over a parking spot. Diseased branches and roots can be pruned to prevent the infection from killing the tree and/or spreading through the entire yard.

However, as a rule of thumb, it’s wise to have your trees pruned during mid to late winter. This will give them enough time to heal from the pruning in time for the spring (growing season). Trees have a lot to deal with during the warmer months which can prevent ample healing. For example, most insects and tree diseases are more active when it is warm.

How Much Does Tree Trimming and Pruning Cost?

Several factors go into the cost of tree trimming and pruning. Things like tree type, landscape, time requirement and your needs factor into the estimate. That is why one of Thornton Hills Tree Service specialists will survey your situation to provide an accurate quote. Give us a call to schedule your free consultation today!
