Aesthetics – Tree trimming helps maintain a tree’s appearance and shape, making it more attractive and increases the curb appeal of your home.
Balance – Proper trimming gives the tree balance and symmetry ensuring a healthier tree. A well-balanced tree is also more stable, which greatly reduces the risk of it toppling over.
Maximizing Available Nutrients – Very large trees may look grand, but they might not be able to adequately absorb all of necessary nutrients from the soil to support the entire tree. Reducing the number of large branches can help the tree use the available nutrients more efficiently and make it healthier.
Better Exposure to Sunlight – An overgrown tree may have many interior leaves that are hidden from the sun by the higher branches. This will diminish the tree’s ability to use sunlight through the all-important process of photosynthesis. Trimming the excess branches allows the tree to absorb more sunlight throughout and improve its overall health.
Safety – Regular tree trimming and pruning of trees reduces the weight of heavy limbs, decreasing the possibility of limbs falling on property and other landscaping and causing serious damage. Trimming and pruning also increases air movement through the crown which helps prevent the spread of diseases.

Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably, but the purpose of trimming a tree is primarily for structure and appearance, whereas pruning a tree is primarily for safety and overall health. You may think you that you can take care of your own trees instead of scheduling tree services.
However, if not done correctly, it can compromise the tree’s growth or even kill the tree. A few wrong cuts can damage healthy parts of your tree, so trust the experts at Boot Road Tree Service to trim and prune your trees carefully and professionally.
