Tree trimming or tree pruning, which one is right for me?
As a home or property owner, tree maintenance has likely crossed your mind as you look at your landscaping.
Whether you realize it or not, you’ve probably considered tree trimming or tree pruning to provide a cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing landscape.
From pear trees to Japanese Birch, trimming and pruning remain essential services to keep your yard growing healthy, and looking as good as the day you bought it.
Whether you’re pruning to remove unneeded branches, or trimming them to promote healthy growth, it doesn’t take an arborist to understand the crucial differences between them.
Tree trimming helps trees, shrubs and hedges alike grow in a healthy manner. Typically, commercial clients keep their trees trimmed to make their property more attractive to their potential clients. A well-kept landscape can do wonders appealing to prospective customers.
When we’re tree trimming in Fullerton, our professionals are focused on removing the green shoots to help encourage a much healthier growth. As a bonus to healthier growth, tree trimming lends itself to increase the appearance of the tree itself.
Tree pruning in Fullerton is even more vital, as it helps prevent growth in unwanted directions. For instance, if an apple tree were to be growing into power lines, pruning would prevent unwanted growth in check and prevent growth from becoming an issue.
Pruning is also typically associated with the removal of unnecessary and sometimes dead, roots and branches. Because of this, they’re cut away from the tree leaving plenty of room for new growth.
What’s the best equipment to use?
Depending on the service, there’s always the right tool for the job. For pruning, shears, either hand or lopping, are typically strong enough to cut through the smaller and thinner branches. When there are thicker branches involved, a saw may be required. For trimming, however, a good set of trimmers may also be needed in order to provide a better result, and healthy growth.

When should I have my trees trimmed?
The best time to trim your trees is just as the winter is ending, right before they send their sap up the trunk. This will help stimulate the trees, and cause new growth as we go into the spring.
Large trees benefit from removing the previous year’s sucklings that grow in the center of the canopy of the tree, or center of the crown. The sucklings end up starving the trees of air, and steal their nutrients that the larger branches need to grow each spring. When those larger branches start to become overweight and sag or hang down, they’ll benefit from being pruned.
Seppo’s Fullerton Tree Services can help relieve those larger branches, and in turn help those trees grow much taller and much healthier.
