Tree Pruning

The main idea behind pruning a tree is to revitalize and restore its health, shape, and aesthetics. While most companies advertise themselves as being tree trimming or pruning services providers, very few are experts. At Bloom Tree Trimming Service, we pride ourselves on maintaining a team of professional and fully-certified tree climbers and arborists that are equipped with the knowledge, equipment, and skills needed to prune a wide variety of tree species in California.

As a homeowner, you have two options when it comes to pruning trees on your property – the first one is to do it yourself, and the second one having a tree expert handle things for you. Trimming or pruning smaller shrubs and trees on your own isn’t that hard, provided you know what you are doing. However, when it comes to large trees, we recommend that you consider hiring the services of a professional tree care company and letting them handle the pruning and trimming – never compromise your safety by trying to take on a tree pruning task by yourself. The arborists at Bloom Tree Trimming Service have decades of experience and continuously practice procedures to lower the chances of any liabilities arising. Apart from that, we utilize a variety of high-end safety equipment that help make our work easier and safer.

The Importance of Pruning a Tree

Since each cut into a tree could potentially determine its growth pattern, we make each cut with careful consideration and only prune for very specific reasons like:
– To increase air and light penetration to the crown of a tree
Removing dead branches
– Removing rubbing or crowded limbs

There is a very thin line between thinning a tree too little or too much. Since most trees reserve their energy within their foliage, if you remove too much, that could affect the tree’s wellbeing and growth. It’s for this reason that most arborists recommend that pruning be done once in a while.

Our Tree Pruning Techniques

At Bloom Tree Trimming Service, we use a variety of pruning methods that can be divided into several sub-categories. When all applied, the result is a healthy, naturally-shaped, beautiful tree.

Cleaning: This process involves removing broken, dying, diseased, or dead branches.

Thinning: This process involves getting rid of extra foliage to increase air-light penetration to the tree’s crown, reduce the load on massive branches, and improve the tree’s shape.

Raising: This process involves removing or raising tree low-lying branches that do not provide enough clearance.

Reduction: This is often performed when dealing with tree branches that cross or grow near power lines. We also use reduction to maintain the structural integrity and form of a tree.

When it comes to pruning, the best time to do it is before spring and after winter. Additionally, pruning in winter, or prewinter saves you money and time since it helps with managing tree disease. Knowing when to trim a trim helps it stay healthy and sound throughout its life while preparing it for growth. The artistic side of things involves trimming and pruning trees by getting rid of deadwood. That makes it easier to shape trees to accomplish your objectives and increase the beauty of a landscape.
