Why should I trim my trees?

Whether you’re an experienced landscaper or wanting to learn more about tree health, there are many good reasons to upkeep your trees with proper trimming.

  • Appearance: Trees can quickly become overgrown which can create a misshaped or unbalanced look. It isn’t uncommon to have branches growing in strange directions–turning your tree a scary sight! If you’re looking to increase the value of your property, regular tree trimming is highly recommended.
  • Landscaping: Regular tree trimming helps enhance a yard’s appearance by shaping or removing unwanted branches that block your view or diminish the overall aesthetic. Additionally, by removing branches you allow more sunlight and moisture to reach the grass and flowers below. That’s what we call a win-win!
  • Health: Both tree pruning and tree trimming are incredibly important to maintain the health of your tree. To keep the structural integrity of the tree, regular trimming becomes very important and reduces the need for future corrective trimming.
  • Safety: Your safety and the safety of those around you is of the utmost importance, and without proper tree trimming, falling branches can lead to a deadly accident. More problems can arise when tree branches start to grow near power lines, causing either electrical fires or power outages. Bottom line is that tree trimming should become apart of your routine to avoid safety hazards at all costs.

How often should you trim your tree?

Just like scheduling your next haircut, trees need to maintain a healthy level of growth. If a tree becomes overgrown it can prevent enough moisture or light from getting in, which can impact the overall health of the tree.

Many proud homeowners will schedule a bi-annual tree trimming appointment to maintain the appearance and health of their trees. However, if you’re experiencing overgrowth close to windows or power lines, this presents serious safety hazards and should be dealt with as soon as possible.

When is the best time of year to trim your trees?

You can trim your trees all year round, however, it’s much safer and easier to do it when the tree is dormant in the wintertime. There are several benefits of waiting until the tree is dormant when growth has halted or slowed down considerably, including:

  • Visibility is much better in the winter once all of the leaves have fallen–making it easier to see what you’re doing.
  • There isn’t as much sap flowing in the trees during the colder months, making it less likely to attract pests. By minimizing the risk of pests or disease, it will make for a much easier removal process for everyone involved!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing

Do I need to hire an arborist to trim my tree?

In almost all cases, tree trimming should be done by a tree expert. Although you may feel comfortable taking this on as a potential DIY project, tree trimming can be a dangerous task and can result in a deadly experience without the right knowledge or equipment. If you have no prior experience in tree trimming, hiring a professional is strongly recommended.

Even the most experienced tree crews need to be careful when tree trimming since branches can fall in unpredictable ways. We take the stress out of the situation by handling everything for you, from trimming to clean up – we have your backs!

How much does tree trimming cost?

There is no easy answer here. Each situation is unique and depending on the complexity and size of the tree, it can dramatically vary from project to project. There are a few factors at play:

  • Location: If your tree is near a power line, there is an inherent risk associated with this type of job that will require extra labour, and therefore, extra cost.
  • Health: If the tree is infested with pests or disease, this impacts the condition of the tree and the level of expertise needed.
  • Size: If you’re dealing with a large tree, the chances are that there will be more branches that need to be trimmed. All of this adds up to an increase in cost.

The easiest thing to do is to call for an estimate. At Tree Menders, we provide free, no-obligation quotes where you can speak directly to a trained professional.

What should I do when my tree is growing close to a power line?

Trees growing near power lines are no joke and need to be taken care of. When a tree and a power line meet it can either cause a power outage for nearby homes or businesses that share that power line or if a tree branch touches a high-voltage power line it can get so hot that it causes a fire. Both are situations that are best to avoid and should be dealt with sooner rather than later.

Who is responsible for tree trimming near a power line?

Typically, local hydro companies are responsible for “vegetation management” near power lines that surround roads or public areas. It is the responsibility of the residential or commercial owner to ensure proper trimming or tree maintenance on their property. Different bylaws or unique circumstances may apply, so confirming with your local government is recommended before you start trimming.
