What is Tree Trimming & Pruning

Tree pruning and shrub care are often overlooked but are in fact an important part of garden maintenance. From reducing the chance of falling branches to protecting the health and structural integrity of your trees, pruning is essential for any property owner that wants to maintain an attractive outdoor space.

Benefits of Tree Trimming & Pruning

Left to their own devices, trees grow tall and wide, with branches reaching any direction that helps them absorb sunlight. In urban environments or on commercial properties, this can be dangerous. Unkempt trees and shrubs are also more susceptible to disease and fungi and can look unsightly.

 There are lots of reasons to trim your trees!

  • Keeping Trees Healthy

Pruning is an important part of keeping your trees healthy. By removing broken, dead, and diseased branches on trees of all ages, you’ll keep trees in their best health and also prevent the spread of fungi.

  • Enhancing Structural Integrity

Pruning young trees is particularly important to maintaining and enhancing structural integrity as the trunk and branches grow. You can control branch architecture on young trees and decide what shape they grow into!

  • Improve Your View

Pruning trees improves your view and makes your garden, driveway, or other outdoor space look more attractive. A better-looking property benefits your commercial operations and even increases your property’s value.

  • Protect Against Storm Damage

 Removing dead and loose tree branches reduces the chance of storm damage and help keep pathways free from debris in the event of high winds. That’s important for commercial operations that wish to maintain safe customer access all year round.

We are very happy with how Earth Development has been handling our account. We REALLY like the Sitefotos reports that are being sent to us. It gives us a great idea on how the site is looking and allows for us to look through the photos and decide if we want to go ahead with any of the recommended work. For example trees or bushes that block the line of sight for drivers or pedestrians, bushes/branches hanging into sidewalks, etc. Also, big props for how quickly you respond to issues! With 45 sites not everything is going to be perfect all of the time, but the fact that Earth Development addresses issues immediately when they come up is a huge help. We want to give a huge shout out and Thank You to Earth Development. We appreciate all the improvements you've made, and how good your communications and service has been. Keep up the good work!
