Trimming Vs. Pruning

Tree trimming and pruning are terms that are often used interchangeably both by laypeople and tree service professionals. They are similar in that they both involve cutting branches and foliage away from trees. However, both services have differing goals and methods.

Tree Trimming

Trimming refers to procedures that focus on the appearance of the tree, scaling back branches that have grown too much. This maintains the size of the tree and prevents it from becoming overgrown, crowding other trees or structures, and looking unruly. Tree trimming should happen annually for young trees, though it depends on how quickly the tree in question grows. Regular trimming will improve the structural stability and integrity of the tree, as well as its overall appearance.

Tree Pruning

Pruning often refers to the removal of dead branches or other cutting practices that contribute to the tree’s overall health. By removing dead or diseased branches, a tree service professional can ensure that air, sunlight, and nutrients can get to the branches that are still alive. We also prevent diseases or pests from spreading if they are contained in specific parts of the tree by pruning away those sections. We recommend pruning every two or three years unless you find hazardous branches in danger of falling.

Types of Trimming & Pruning

Pruning and trimming in Dana Point, CA is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There are many different types of trimming and pruning available, each with its own strategy and technique. Here is a sample of the types of care you might expect from a tree service provider.

Crown Reduction

This method reduces the size of the crown or top of the tree without changing its structure or shape substantially. To learn more about crown reduction, click here.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning removes branches inside the canopy, allowing light and air to flow through. This process may make the tree look less lush, but it promotes further growth of the inner branches and foliage.

Crown Raising

Also sometimes called crown lifting, this process removes branches from the bottom of the crown. Often this happens when a branch becomes a hazard in a pedestrian path or roadway. It could also be due to the branch obstructing a view.

Crown Restoration

When storm damage impacts your tree, crown restoration may help it return to its original appearance. If the shape of a tree is impacted, we’ll do our best to get it to look natural with strategic pruning and trimming in Dana Point, CA.

Crown Cleaning

Dead branches need to be removed every few years, and crown cleaning is how we do it. We’ll also get rid of any broken or dying branches, as well as growths that impede the overall success of the tree, like water sprouts.
