While many would use the terms “trimming” and “pruning” interchangeable, they are two separate tree care services. And while other Encinitas, CA tree care companies may offer “trimming” services, you may not be getting what you’re paying for or expecting.
When Tree Service Encinitas trims your trees, we always do it the right way. Rather than simply cutting away as many branches as we can like poor quality services will, our team chops off only what we have to. This method leaves the tree healthy, strong, and growing for longer than simply cutting a lot off all at once.
While pruning certainly has its place and is a service we provide with our regular maintenance packages, tree trimming services are necessary and are offered separately. When your trees have a ton of overgrowth or dead limbs, it can prevent your tree from reaching its full potential. Dead growth and too many branches will make a tree work harder than it needs to, preventing nutrients from reaching where they need to be.

Our company has the amount of experience that your trees need to keep looking great. We know exactly how much we can cut off, as well as having the insight to knowing what should be removed each visit. Before a company prunes the remaining branches, the right ones need to be removed first. This step crucial to avoid wasting time trying to make an overabundance of branches look better. Unfortunately, not all companies practice this step.
Some homeowners may try and attempt trimming on their own, figuring a pair of sheers would be cheaper than many of the more expensive tree care professionals in the area.

Our certified arborists can provide one of four different tree trimming techniques. Crown Cleaning is the process in which our arborist removes dead or dying limbs to make room for the fresh ones to grow. Crown Reduction is when the arborist trims away the top of the tree, typically for the purpose of evading powerlines. Crown Raising is when overhanging branches are removed, and the bottom of the tree’s canopy is trimmed upwards. Crown Thinning is the process of precisely cutting branches to open up room for air flow and sunlight as well as give your tree a nice, clean appearance.

Tree trimming is necessary for keeping your tree both healthy and controlled. If your tree’s branches are creeping onto your roof, it’s providing access to rodents and pests into your attic. For apartment complexes, you may want to keep tree branches from growing into walkways. If you live near power lines, there are proximity regulations that your tree must adhere to. All of these situations are fixable by our professional tree pruners.
At Encinitas Tree Care, our certified arborists are more than qualified to spruce up your tree and cut off unnecessary or dead branches. Our expert tree trimmers have studied numerous tree species and can trim them in such a way as to maximize their access to sunlight (nutrients). Improper tree trimming can cause unsightly damages.
