Tree Trimming North Miami

- Assisting our clients to prevent destruction caused by trees



Tree trimming is normally a timely practice in response to a risk caused by a tree or good-sized shrubbery. For example, a tree must definitely be cut back should a limb block a highway or perhaps walkway. Wherever tree limbs remain in threat of wrecking residential or commercial property, they will need to be cut and removed. Trimming could also be required when the general appearance of the tree really needs sprucing up for cosmetic aims.

Venn Diagram comparing tree trimming with tree pruning

It really is much the same and yet a little distinct to pruning. Tree pruning is normally much more of a prepared, considered technique entailing surgical incisions in certain locations on the tree as well as over certain months of the season in order to enhance the tree's condition or fecundity. Actually, however, the two terms are used reciprocally all the time.

How to trim a tree without killing it

You might persuade yourself to trim a tree on your own. If you possess a modest tree, it may be achievable IF you can get your hands on the suitable equipment, a little bit of practical knowledge, safety gear and don't necessitate a step ladder. It's hard to encapsulate decades of knowledge as well as practical experience within a few paragraphs. However, some of the frequent trimming lapses that our experts encounter as well as what should be averted are described beneath in these tips:


  1. A stub is left just where the tree limb has been trimmed. Such stubs do attract decay because trees can not heal these stubs adequately. Instead, trim close to the primary branch without touching the 'collar'. Don't trim very close as it will certainly be sluggish to recover and foster rot leading to weakness in the principal branch.
  2. Trees are often trimmed far too dramatically. This is often called topping and can certainly promote weak growth in the event that it does not destroy the tree. Aim to crop no more than a quarter% from the entire tree canopy in any one year.
  3. Cuts are way too inclined to the direction of the branch being cut and also larger than needed. Your pruning snip will need to be clean and you ought to aim for the smallest-sized cut face achievable. If you don't, the wound will likely mend over more slowly, involving additional energy which the tree could make use of in other areas of the tree.
  4. The tree's too big to cut. Inexperienced people climbing up massive trees can and does lead to a very high chance of personal injury along with property damage underneath and around the tree. Just don't ever do this - phone the experts instead.

How to trim a large tree without killing yourself

Just say no! Contact Tree Top Pros instead. Pruning a larger tree involves climbing gear or hydraulic bucket rigs. There's certainly a huge danger of tumbling from regular domestic ladders resulting in a serious cause of backyard personal injuries and worse. The limbs of large trees are much larger and consequently much heavier. What happens when you’re up a big tree with a saw and a ladder is as follows. When sawn through, the cut branch swings back in a random direction and so compromises any climbing hardware. Falling branches often sweep away the very same ladder that's holding you aloft. This is the 2nd area of high danger and it really is just not worth it.
