Tree trimming is a process of not bush-wacking a tree to death, but trimming a tree in a way that is healthy and still looks like a tree in the end. So many landscapers and non-educated “tree-guys” will come and hack off all the foilage and branches to the nub of the tree. This is something that is not recommended to do by the ISA and will stress out or kill your tree in the long run. We recommend to trim your tree to make it look naturally like a tree when we are done with just 25% or less foilage so that the wind can blow through naturally.
We also do limb spacing, this is to deter limbs from being on top of eachother so that each limb has its own space to grow. When limbs rub on eachother this creates weak spots or cross limbs in your tree. Below are some pictures for your review of some of our many tree trimming jobs.
