Tree Pruning and Tree Trimming
Tree trimming services performed by an ISA certified arborist enhance the natural beauty and structure of young trees. These trees then grow into well-shaped, healthy trees. Proper tree pruning and tree trimming also help reduce the need for corrective tree services later on. A strong central leader and well-placed branches will minimize tree damage and tree removal. Emporia and Topeka have unpredictable weather but proper pruning will reduce the risk of storm damage.
Benefits of Tree Trimming in the Emporia and Topeka Area
Tree trimming provides a variety of benefits to your trees and landscape:
- Health: Our tree pruning services include the removal of diseased, broken, or dead branches. This removes disease-causing insect habitat and prevents decay-producing fungi from penetrating and infecting other areas of your tree. The removal of live branches is occasionally necessary to allow increased exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy. We also remove crossing and rubbing branches to eliminate future wounding sites and improve structure.
- Structural: Young tree pruning is pruning performed for structural enhancement. This important procedure helps ensure that your new trees have desirable branch architecture and structural integrity. Proper pruning of specimens when they are young reduces the potential of costly problems and the need for structural support as your landscape matures.
- Appearance and Restoration: Tree pruning for appearance and restoration is essential for maximizing the beauty of formal plantings. It also assists with landscape maintenance and tree preservation.
- Safety: Tree pruning can protect against storm damage from Kansas’s ice, snow or wind storms and the danger of falling limbs. This is particularly a concern for trees along pedestrian paths, driveways, and surrounding homes and buildings. Also, it is often necessary to prune trees with low-hanging branches in certain areas in order to eliminate interference with pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
- Visual Access: Increase your landscape’s value, and enhance its beauty with vista tree pruning. Vista pruning creates visual access to golf courses, lakes, gardens or other picturesque views while maintaining privacy where desired.
