Tree Pruning Service in Orillia
Tree pruning is the act of removing excess build-up and debris from the crown of your trees. The tips and crown of your tree can appear to extend or be fuller from afar, but in reality, a lot of this debris may actually be dead or decaying leaves and branches. The limbs from trees have a tendency to detach from storms, weather changes, and animal interaction, but they can remain in the treetops for a longer period of time. By removing the excess branches and trimming the ends of existing ones, we can promote fresh growth on your trees for the upcoming season.
Benefits of Tree Pruning
The benefits of tree pruning are tremendous and apparent when the seasons change. If you have trees that are part of a landscape, you’ll notice a stark difference in their shape and appearance from spring to winter. When the colder months come and you’re able to more clearly see the naked branches of your trees, you might realize that not all are created equal. Some might be longer or thicker than others and some might have broken ends. These broken and dead ends of tree limbs are essentially what needs to be cut from the tree to promote new growth. Even so, having your trees pruned annually can increase their longevity and save you money in the long run from extensive tree maintenance.
Tree Pruning Timing
The timing of pruning your trees is crucial to their overall wellbeing. While your trees should not be over-pruned or pruned too frequently, they can benefit from a yearly prune in between seasons. Having your trees pruned either at the end of Fall or end of Winter can adequately remove any dead or dying limbs and branches and prepare the trees for fresh growth. If limbs and branches are left on the trees come Spring, you’ll likely notice a delay in your trees’ growth and blossoming, or you might find that parts of their crowns are uneven or discolored. Therefore, timing is everything when it comes to pruning your trees, as you want to make sure it’s done before new growth is underway.
Tree Chipping and Limb Cutting Service
Tree chipping is a great and sustainable way to make use of old trees. Instead of disposing of trees that have been removed, we like to reuse them as much as possible beforehand. Tree chipping is the process of essentially reducing the tree or limbs to wood chips and small bits which can then be used for fertilization and in gardens as mulch.
Limb cutting is exactly how it sounds. Using our modern machinery, we carve off the limbs of your trees that are dying, decaying, infected, or simply inconvenient. Some limbs of the tree may also put the rest of the tree off balance which can cause your tree to tilt or droop. Removing co-dominant or equally sizable limbs can help the tree regain some sturdiness and balance. Limb cutting shouldn’t be done regularly as it can affect the integrity of the tree as a whole but should be done with consulting guidance from a tree specialist.
